An elegant wedding dress is one of the things that helps to accentuate how beautiful the bride is. To me knitted wedding dresses are the most elegant ones of them all. I have not yet had the honor to knit one but luckily there are plenty of other talented knitters who have.
At the end of August I went to Haapsalu to the 4th Haapsalu Lace Day. I wrote about the day itself in my last post but besides the things I talked about there I also took some pictures of the lace dresses in Haapsalu Lace Center. I do have to apologize that the quality is not the best, my camera is pretty old and I don’t know that much about taking pictures. But I do hope that the beauty, elegance and craftsmanship of these lace dresses will be apparent nevertheless
The dress on the left is knitted by Ege Paju, to see the whole dress scroll down a bit.
This first dress is knitted by Marge Heeringas
The dress in the center is knitted by Helmi Mändla and the bolero is knitted by Aime Edasi
And here is the full dress knitted by Ege Paju
This beautiful dress suitable for flower girls was knitted by Merle Saulep
The red dress was knitted by Pille Källe
This last lace wedding dress was knitted by Ester-Vileida Viilup in 1974. At first the dress was white with pink underdress, but after the wedding it was colored so that it could be used for other occasions.
As you could see from the pictures there is lot more to see in the Haapsalu Lace Centre than knitted wedding dresses. I do have some more pictures that I want to show you in my next post but even after these there is still a lot to see and they constantly add new items to their exhibition. So if you like lace and visit Estonia then you definately have to go there!
