Okay, so it’s really a dress…

I have a confession to make.  The crochet lace experiment isn’t for a sleeveless top, as I told you earlier here and here.  I labeled it as such to escape from potential embarrassment should the project prove to be too large an undertaking to be successful.  But now that I have seen how well I like the pattern and the yarn, and how fast it is working up, I feel pretty comfortable with telling you the truth.

The crochet lace project is really my wedding dress.

Yes, it is a large project.  Yes, it will take several months to complete.  Yes, I now feel pretty comfortable that I have the ability to pull it off.

Fairly comfortable anyway.  I have a Plan B, just in case.

I am so excited, about making it and wearing it.  How special to wear a dress of my own creation on such a memorable day!

Unfortunately, I have been forced to pause progress for several weeks.  You see, my initial yarn estimate proved to be too close for comfort given how far 1 skein went on the sample.  So I am now waiting on a yarn order to resume construction.

Can’t you hear the drumming of my fingers in frustration?  I am aching to be working on this project again!

I am also on the lookout for the perfect slip dress to wear under the lace overdress.  The lavender slip dress I picked up is acting as a placeholder, since it is the correct shape and size but the wrong color.  I am imagining a light blue or light silvery gray dress glimpsed between the crochet stitches.   The search continues.

Until my yarn shipment arrives, I’ll be keeping my fingers busy on a pair of socks.  If the yarn order takes much longer, I’ll be finishing said pair of socks and starting on another.
