19 Crocheted Dresses for a Wedding

When Stephanie Brooks-Holyfield posted this picture on our Facebook page, we were stunned! She had crocheted all 19 of the dresses for this ceremony, so we had to get more details.

original bridal party pictureStephanie has been crocheting since she was about seven, after learning from an arts & crafts class at the local YMCA. She has a friend from her church who she has made several dresses for, so they got the idea for Stephanie to make dresses for her friend’s sister’s vow renewal.

Stephanie crocheted 18 bridesmaids dresses and 1 bridal gown for this 25th anniversary vow renewal! The entire original wedding party was involved in the ceremony.

She used Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo since it is sturdy, and the pieces she has made with Super Saver have lasted for over a decade. The bridesmaids dresses are in 316 Soft White and the bride’s gown is in 311 White.

Stephanie started crocheting the dresses the first week of April, and concluded the bride’s dress on June 4, the day of the ceremony. It took her about a day and a half to make each dress, and she did not use a pattern. She says that she is retired, so she has a lot of time to crochet and that it soothes her soul.

Wonderful job Stephanie!
