    Such a beautiful dress !! First I saw I thought ‘so beautiful’ later I caught myself everyday checking it and thinking ‘I would love to have one in my wardrobe’ :DD Really inspires this project !! ((: By the way, in the first postreply you wrote that you’re tired of snow- a little bit strange as my Norwegian lecturer told us that all Norwegians love winter and it’s better than summer as here we don’t have mountains and winter is a little bit boring :D Of course, there can’t be hole 100% and maybe it was more like a joke (:

      tank you for the cind words :)
      I dont like the cold. ( my friends tease me for not being a good Norwegian hehe) Snow is pretty to look at, but but when it has been snowing for a week, it’s 20 degrees below zero and the streets are covered with ice, the snow is not so pretty anymore;)

    I love big fluffy dresses too! You did a wonderful job and it is so pretty. Makes me wish for summer, instead of the several feet of snow I have….
