12 MOC March project

It's been a bit quiet around here, but I have been busy crocheting so I could finish my March project in 12 Months of Crochet. I didn't think I would finish, so I had another thing up my sleeve just in case I didn't finish this one. But a lot of crocheting, which resulted in a little sore wrist.

A while ago I saw this story somewhere in facebook. This woman crocheted her own wedding dress for only $30... not only couldn't I believe she could get yarn this cheap for a whole dress, and the result was amazing. All the fuzz about her dress made her write up a pattern, because she had just "winged it" on her daily bus commute over a period of 5 months!

Then I saw the pattern was for sale on Ravelry I had to make it. The yarn she had used I didn't know, and I couldn't find it in any Danish stores of webstores. I couldn't even find it online in Europe, and if you order from outside the European Union you have to stay below $13 before shipping otherwise you will have to pay extra taxes on imported goods, which are really expensive in Denmark. But I found a place where I could get 4 skeins for just $12... the shipping was almost $10 dollars... but still $22 for a dress is still really cheap if you ask me.

So here you have my result of this months 12 MOC.


  1. It's beautiful! I'm finishing a blanket for my best friend's wedding present (shh) and then I'm also starting to crochet some owls - but I'm not very good at it yet.


Your comments makes me smile:)
