When a 22-year-old Abbey Ramirez-Bodley from Arkansas city, U.S. couldn’t find a wedding dress in her budget, she decided to make one herself. Her aunt, who taught her how to crochet when she was 3 years old, kindly agreed to help. On October 17th, after 8 months of hard work, Ramirez-Bodley walked down the aisle in the dress of her dreams which only cost her $70, plus $100 for a green dress underneath.

“Making something with your own hands out of love is very special on the most important day of your life,” Ramirez-Bodley told Mashable. For the brides-to-be out there, she has one piece of advice to give: “Start early and don’t get frustrated. The outcome is worth all the work.”

22-year-old Abbey Ramirez-Bodley was struggling to find a wedding dress in her price range. She was looking for a vintage-style wedding gown but everything she liked was over $1,000. So she bought $70 worth of cotton yarn and decided to make one herself. Her aunt taught her how to crochet when she was only 3 years old. “Making something with your own hands out of love is very special on the most important day of your life”.

It took her 8 months to make the dress. “When I put it on, I was, for one, amazed that it looked exactly like what I thought it would look like in my head”. “It was amazing. It was emotional. [Especially] when you put that much time and love into something”.
