Shift Change Dress is a community fashion & art project that utilizes a shift dress sewing pattern as a medium for communication and action. Participants are encouraged to use the pattern as a blank canvas for their art or message and to share their work with the community. The goal of the project is to create scenarios in which the garments that are made from the pattern are used to create conversations, awareness and action on issues of importance to their creators. The idea is to use the power of fashion as a tool for social change rather than consumerism and capitalism. Click here for more information.
