Crocheted Wedding Dress in Aunt Lydia’s Classic 10!

You might have seen Chi Krneta on the news recently: she crocheted her own beautiful wedding dress! Even better, she did it using our Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread Size 10.

Chi made the most of her bus commute to and from work by crocheting her own lace wedding dress. She designed it herself using the pineapple stitch.

Since she used Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Size 10, the dress was inexpensive, costing her less than $30 total (including material for the lining). It is also machine washable and doesn’t require ironing. Chi reports that she plans to use it for other occasions with different colored linings — we’re sure it will always be a hit!

We’re so proud that she chose to use our thread for her special day. Thank you Chi!

Update: This pattern is available for sale on Ravelry: Chrysanthemum Lace Dress.

    Beautiful Dress, Hope to get the pattern Soon. Only one renark,How come that USA does not produce nicer quality mercerized cotton no more, like in the past. All the cotton now, is of very very poor quality. Does not hold up in wash.
    I am experienced crocheter . Just sad you do not offer better quality thread——–
