Enjambment and Janet Cooper

Janet Cooper is a friend and one of my favorite artists. She also owns the Muy Marcottage dress “Enjambment” and gave me a thrill by having herself photographed in the dress in various situations.  Scroll below to see some of these fotos.

Janet  wore “Enjambment” while walking the last few miles of the El Camino de Santiago.

The term “enjambment” is a literary term.  It indicates a line in poetry that continues going on beyond a line-break thus, in a certain way, goes beyond its boundaries.  Just like the rows of fabric strips in the skirt of the dress “Enjambment“.  This Muy Marcottage dress was made from a second hand, short, sleeveless dress as well as cut up discarded clothing and netting.  The word “enjambment” is embroidered on the front.  And, as you can see from the foto below, Janet looks fabulous in it!
