Niagara Escarpment Dress

An escarpment “wearable art” dress.  Shown in the 2011 Niagara Artists Centre “Strutt” wearable art runway show.  It is titled Niagara Esc-Art-Ment.  I printed on fabric, a design to portray fractured rock layers of the Niagara Escarpment.  I hand sewed the dress because I do not know how to use a sewing machine. A shoulder piece reflects the many water falls along the escarpment and some cedar sprays at waist respect the ancient thousand-year old cedar trees that grow along the rockfaces.DON DRESSMAKING - Version 2
