Woman makes her own wedding dress on her work commute

Rather than stalking Facebook friends or scrolling mindlessly through Twitter on her commute to work, this woman put her time to much better use – she made her own wedding dress.

Reddit user Alkikat spent five months crocheting her very own wedding dress on her bus journey into work. On the sharing site, she writes: “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. My commute time couldn't be used for anything else anyway. 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 colours and with the train bustled up in different ways.”

Check out the finished product here – we are actually very impressed. Wonder if it would look that good if we had a go? Hmm…
