She crocheted the stunning white mermaid style dress herself while commuting on the bus. (Notice the cat video bomb - it looks like he loves the dress too!)
TheKnot.com wedding site reports that most women spend $1,000 or more on their dress but this DIY expert knows how to find a bargain. She writes, "I bought 2 of the larger skeins of cotton thread on sale for about $7 each." She reported that the remaining cost was for the lining fabric - also bought on sale. The look was completed with a spring green sash.
The dress is basically a tube, flaring out at the bottom with a top attached to the tube. Additionally, she made her own pattern, often the hardest part of garment creation.
Beautiful, thrifty and requiring a ton of talent - we nominate this savvy sewer for any "Best Dressed Bride" list!
