5 months pregnant and the dress still fits! (though it requires a different lining)

UPDATE: The pattern for both the dress AND the train addition are finally done!

My greatest crochet project yet which started out as something to keep me busy during my bus commute over about 5 months. All the material (including thread and satin fabric for the lining) costs about $30, I didn’t have to spend extra time on it because I used commute time, it’s machine washable and stretchy so I didn’t have to do anything to shape it to my body, and it doesn’t wrinkle so it’s practically the perfect wedding dress.

See a stop-motion animation I made of the dress’s progress.
