"The Elizabeth"- A Wedding Dress
Wasn't sure where it would be best to post this. Move it elsewhere if you'd like to. (Lounge?) Anyway, I took a break from knitting today and decided to go to my computer. So what do I start searching for.....? KNITTING STUFF OF COURSE! Came across this dress and had to pause and take a second look. Thought I'd share it. Jeanie

Wow. Impressive someone actually took the time to create that, especially considering how darn ugly it is.

Hey, I'm all for innovation, however, when does the knitting begin?
Draping skeins of yarn in the hope that someone will be willing to sacrifice their body to hold it up is a long way from knitting.

I guess if the word "couture" appears that makes it a very expensive, one of a kind garment. I sure hope this design is the only one of its kind!

I can just see the social item in the newspaper: 'the bride wore yarn!' She was stunning. The groom was just stunned! Oy!

. . . and, Jeanie, just for you - an addendum. It's been reported that later, that bride and groom became completely unraveled!!!

Oh, how could I resist? Jean

Okay Jean, now you've got me on the floor laughing. Unraveled bride and groom....

Hey, did you ever consider there might be yet a KNIT dress under all those loops of yarn?

I don't know, sweetie, but I'll bet the groom hoped NOT!
You really should have put this in THE LOUNGE.

I think it could be called "Fiber Arts", eh?
