This Woman Made a Wedding Dress for $30 on Her Morning Commute

Move over Vera Wang, this bride made her own dress…for $30…on her way to work.

Redditor Chi Krneta (a.k.a alkikat) proves you don't need to spend thousands of dollars on a wedding dress if you're creative and have a little time.

In photos posted on the DIY subreddit, Krneta shows off the wedding dress she crocheted herself during her morning bus commute.

“I crocheted my lace wedding dress on the bus during my work commute for about 5 months," Krneta explained on Reddit. "The dress is a pattern I designed with a commonly used pineapple stitch.”

Let's let that sink in for a second. Krneta designed and made that beautiful dress on the bus.

“The dress was practically free because I didn't spend much money on it (under $30 for all of the materials including fabric for the lining) and I didn't spend much extra time on it,” the bride explains.

"The dress is also machine-washable (I've washed it several times), doesn't wrinkle or need any special care, and I plan on wearing it again with linings of different colors and with the train bustled up in different ways."

In the two years since her wedding, Krneta has made her crochet patterns available for purchase online, so if you're feeling crafty it might be time to start taking the bus.
