Wedding dress shopping is a nightmare of its own when it comes to the planning aspect. This social media creator Veronika Lindberg made things for herself, increasingly simple and increasingly difficult at the same time by knitting her own wedding dress. To top it all off, she shared the entire process on YouTube and used this opportunity to debunk the myths about knitting as a craft in general. Sharing her story of how she came upon the idea, she wrote for Insider, "In late June, my partner and I decided to get married, and immediately, I thought it would be so cool to knit my own wedding dress and document the experience for a YouTube video, even though I only had about six weeks until our wedding date in September, so I could tell it was going to be a stressful ordeal."

Feeling like this video could be her magnum opus, Lindberg immersed her entire self in this project. "I felt this had the potential to be the most epic YouTube video ever though, so I ordered 30 balls of white pure silk yarn for roughly $290, and got to work," she determined. While being a knitter is great for doing small projects and little knick-knacks but knitting a dress is a whole ordeal and Lindberg shared her struggles grappling with the same. "Despite being a knitting content creator, I had never knitted a dress before this. I was actually quite hesitant about the concept of it because I worried it would look like a pajama dress and not have any shape to it," she mused. At this point, she has some ideas percolating and this is what she wrote of the process, "A lot of knitted dresses I've seen look a bit granny-ish, but I wanted something that was more haute couture, so I went on Pinterest and looked up different dress designs from Christian Dior and Chanel, and decided to try and create a dress inspired by those designs, but made from silk yarn."
