Doily Wedding Dress of Infinite Adorability

Whilst finding myself, once again, trapped on Craftzine in an rabid devouring of crochet patterns, I stumbled upon shots of this SUPER adorable hand made doily dress from a California mountain elopement, featured on 100 Layer Cake.

The bride apparently ripped apart a vintage dress to use as a base for the under-dress pattern, then crocheted all the doilies for the dress in a three week block (is she the fastest crochet-er of all time?!), and they finished the dress the morning-of and sewed her into it! O_O;; Her SUPER cute shoes were dyed to the colour she wanted and the embellishments? Vintage earrings used as shoe clips. ADORABLE!

And my Mum wouldn’t let me use any doilies I’ve inherited for clothing! So digging out all the ones I’ve bought from Op Shops and clothinating them like I planned.
