A bride hand-knit her own wedding dress over the course of nine months during her commute on the New York City subway, according to a TikTok video she posted.

“The inspiration was a space pirate meets a tomato patch – because it was just silly and fun,” Andrews wrote on the TikTok video. “It totaled over 4 miles of mohair lace yarn” Andrews then described how one of the ruffles alone had one mile of yarn.

“When it came time to sew together I was scared because I could only trust that it would fit – no time to go back,” Andrews wrote.
Andrews then showed a small woven tomato in her hand and wrote, “Thankfully it was ok so I could add the little tomatoes!”
At the end of the video, she showed her “best friend,” who is presumably now her husband. The groom wore a space suit that Andrews said she sewed herself.
“I will always cherish this dress and the time that went into making it,” Andrews wrote.
