For a government class i needed to do something to raise voter awareness. i considered my strengths, the list consisted of one thing: sewing dresses out of strange things. I decided that would do.
Ok so technically not ballots, but voter registration forms was just far too lengthy.

By making this dress and putting it out there for everyone to see i hope to encourage voters to get out and vote tuesday, because every vote truly counts.






action shots will probably come soon...but only if you get out and vote!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
