I love all the Irish crochet, and even the pearls look nice even though I'm not one for "crudding" up a dress (no offense meant to you or your mom--crud is what I call all the pearls and sparklies on a dress; it's my catch-all code word for the bling long before bling was a word)!

So who is this dress for? And you say, this is ONE of them--so there are more?

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you very much. She was going for the 18th century look and it really does look like it, and yes there are a few more, I'll post them up a little bit later. She also currently wants to showcase them somewhere, but no clue where.

Do you know if she threaded the pearls onto her crochet thread to crochet them in, or if she sewed them on? Either way it's an amazing labor of love...

Thanks. She sewed them later on after all the parts were done.

She did everything what you see in the photos, including all the fabrics.

I'll post more pictures of the other ones she has made, stay tuned!
