Will, packing for our camping trip to Iceland: "Tent - check. Hiking boots - check. Down sleeping bag - check. Crampons - check. Camping stove - check. Wait - how many ballgowns?!"
Iceland! Realm of magic and mystery and otherworldly scenery, inhabited by elves and trolls and fairy folk. Although our trip was planned somewhat last-minute, I set my heart on making a dress that would reflect the ethereal beauty of the Icelandic landscape - then spent a week individually hand-sewing petals onto lace and tulle. I named it the "Blómafoss" dress, which is "blossom waterfall" in Icelandic.
