crocheted wedding dresses

It started out like this: I loved collecting Barbie dolls. Then I learned to crochet. Turns out the two go hand-in-hand. I started collecting patterns to crochet Barbie doll clothes. The patterns I picked out got more and more intricate over the years, until one day I found this crocheted wedding dress pattern that was fashioned just like Princess Di's.

Well, you know I just had to have it. I didn't care one iota what it cost, either. It was so awesome to look at--little tiny pearls stitched right into it. I loved it! Too bad I couldn't make it in my size. But that's okay, I didn't really need a wedding dress at the time. I wondered all these years if anyone else felt the way I did. You know, wishing they had the most beautiful crocheted wedding dress in the world? I wondered what a dress like that might cost.

Life goes on. I am sure after all these years that I could make one in human size very much like the one that was made for a doll. I'm sure I would never have to worry about money, if I would just go ahead and make it.

Today is a new day. Perhaps tomorrow I will start on that awesome crocheted wedding dress. If not for me, or you, then maybe for a lucky Barbie doll. It's nice to think about, at any rate. A goal to reach for.

Later Gater,

Your Sandi

You are such an inspiration to me. I love reading thru your blog! Did you ever crochet the wedding dress? I searched and the only dress I found was the black and burgundy one. I'd love to see the wedding dress, too. If you haven't yet crocheted it, what can we do to entice you? *grin*
