Knitted Wedding Dresses – Haapsalu Lace Center

Knitted Wedding Dresses 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

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!

    I’ve been knitting since I was 10 yrs old. I’ve knitted 3 Haapsalu projects. I’m currently starting a Nancy Bush project called Crown Prince Square Shawl. First time to just go by the chart. I’ve got some questions. Maybe you can help
