She Always Tries to Measure Up

Dawn Wohlford's avatar Dawn Wohlford

This little dress is made from vinyl coated measuring tapes, machine sewn together. It features a zipper in the back and has a matching shoulder bag. The piece was created to illustrate the seemingly innate desire, in women, for a perfectly proportioned figure. It also alludes to other ways that women compare themselves to others.
