Wedding Dress Recreated

So, I was given the challenge of taking a wedding dress from around the 60's....maybe, lol, and recreating a more modern one for the granddaughter.   I, unfortunately, didn't take a picture of the original tho hope to get a copy of one when I also get a pic of the granddaughter in this one! Imagine the original with big poofy sleeves, a ruffle around the V-neck and a very long train! The front of the skirt is from the long train of the original and the back of the skirt is from the sides of the original. For the bodice, I removed the big puffy sleeves, moved the beaded lace piece up off the waist and made it into a drop waist instead of the princess waist it was originally. I also added the free-standing lace all around the neckline.

Here's the recreation:

Recent Crochet Projects

Recent crochet projects completed. The burgundy beanie is a 'Baby Turban' and so easy to make!
 This brown & peach creation is for my cousin's newest addition to their family, Katelynn. I made 2 hats since she will need one now and later. :D

 These two 'watermelon' beanies were fun to make. My Sis-in-law took the bigger one and the smaller will be donated to the Children's Hospital in Madera, CA along with the Lil red one which fits a newborn.
