Aunt Irma's dress
This is the dress I'm making for my younger son's wedding. I ordered the thread from www.crochetaustralia.com.au which was really cool. We have 7 different brands of the same colors here, but they had a lovely selection including the winter white I was looking for.
I'm duplicating this one in size 3 with size 20 thread and an 8, 1.25mm steel hook, but will make 2 others with size 10 thread in size 5. Also increasing the needle size on the skirt as I progress.
This dress was made by my daughter-in-laws Aunt Irma for her grandmother. Her mother and aunts wore it, as did she and her sister. I'm happy that this new one will be one my granddaughters can wear.
