What are you most proud of? I designed and hand knit my wedding dress. You can read about the process from concept to completion here: http://worldknits.blogspot.com/2014/01/soundtrack-of-sweater-my-wedding-dress.html

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I've decided not to publish this pattern. While I love designing for others, I?d like to keep this as my own. If you like this dress you will also like Bryn Mawr, a dress I designed for Interweave Knits Fall 2013. It?s a heavily cabled dress that transitions from an A-line skirt to a fitted bodice.

Many years ago I made my wedding dress and 42 years later I am very proud and glad that I have this very special memory. Your dress is beautiful and I know every stitch is a precious expression of your love for the wonderful man you married.

Absolutely gorgeous. I am sorry you are not publishing it. It might be what someone could use as a goal for losing weight to fit into it also.

Love the detail at the waist and the center panel contrasting yet blending nicely with the cables.
