This is an idea I’ve had in my head for a long time now, and I think it’s time I let it out.
I’ve wanted to make a dress that looks like the sea, with its deep variations of green and blue, and its little crests of white. It will probably call for some silks in blue green hues, some stiff and some a little more supple—and over top of everything, a bunch of white chiffon, gathered and bunched into little bits of white froth at the bottom of the hem. (This picture was taken off the Strait of Malacca; I found it on Wikipedia because I just wanted something to show you what was in my head! If you want to see it for yourself, go search for ‘seawater’.)
This picture is also from Wikipedia—it’s an iceberg in Baffin Bay, which I think is between Canada and Greenland. The first time I saw this it almost scared me. Somehow, I want to combine this drama, this calm and striking beauty, with the froth of the first picture! I think it would make a very interesting dress indeed…
