Initially I wanted to lengthen the skirt in this dress and wear as a wedding gown for my 2nd marriage. Alas, already the weight of that knee length dress was 700 gr /24.6 oz, so wearing even heavier maxi dress in summer will be a terrible ordeal : ). I imagine American actors from Hitchcock movies wearing dark suits, vests and hats … in Morocco (The Man Who Knew Too Much). Really painful to watch them : ). Unless they have shot the movie in a studio : ).
So I’ve decided to crochet something with thinner cotton and finished such a beach wedding dress:
The length of the dress is 152 cm (60’’), it weights 590 gr/20.8 oz for size S/M. Calculated weight for size M/L is 650 gr/22.9 oz. The skirt length can be adjusted as you go, the skirt pattern is quite easy to remember.
I changed turquoise and white underdresses since they were easy to style for both a day and evening look and my arms were covered with a subtle veil. Quite feminine … if a bride is over 40 and still in a good shape :).
