First Post Formalities

This Lela Rose wedding gown was THE inspiration that fueled my lofty (sometimes I think, much too lofty) crochet aspirations.

I don't suppose I need to elaborate on why/how a dress like this can drive one to spend 18 out of 24 hours in a day daydreaming, visualizing, planning, seeking, hoarding, and studying crochet photos, patterns, diagrams, tips and techniques.

Looking at it now, I'm not quite sure if it's indeed crochet rather than some sort of crochet-inspired lace fabric.  Not that it matters, really, because the point is that I continue to imagine that an approximation of it can be done in crochet-- hence, this blog, this exploration, this continued foray with my hook.


  1. I don't think it's true crochet, you are right. But could be done by crochet and would look as beautiful.

    1. Yes, it does seem to be a style that would crochet up beautifully! It would be an awful lot of work but so worth it in the end. :)
