Here's a little reminder of why I was quite happy to purchase my wedding dress:
"Macdonnell wanted crocheted edging to soften the lines of the V-neck and the mo-leaf detail to repeat at the back, but with no pattern to consult and unable to do a proper fitting until a piece was completed, the bodice came together and unravelled almost half a dozen times before she found something that worked. Like Penelope in Homer's The Odyssey, she wove it together and pulled it apart. A week and a half before the wedding, she almost threw it on the bonfire after unravelling it for a third time."You'll have to read the article to get the description of the dress... :)
ps: I don't think this author knows a damn thing about knitting - surprise, surprise!
ps x 2: turns out that the flower girl in that wedding is the daughter of one of Mike's friends. And the article's author is the son of our City Councillor. Ottawa is a scarily small place sometimes!
