Morrissey Makes Up

Added Oct 8, 2012

Here’s a confession – I LOVE MORRISSEY! I really do – I’m off to see him in Vegas next month – yep, all the way to Vegas, baby!!
I’ve gone mad and ordered bespoke fabric, featuring my hero which I’m going to make a 50s sundress with (hey if I can’t wear that in Vegas, where can I?!)but I made sure to get a sample first to check design etc – this is what I created from the sample!
One for me and one for someone who’s just as mad about the man as I am :)
I’m loving the pockets inside! They’ve kind of turned out kitsch, Hawaiian and a little Japanese looking, somehow :)

      Thanks, Lauren. I can’t wait to make up my dress!!! It’s really nice to find people who are Moz and sewing fans too :)

    A Moz bag! Fantastic! You’re making me think I should make something Moz or Smiths-themed for when I see him in December.

      You should – because we must ;) Enjoy the gig – I know you will because he’s so on form right now (I saw him in the UK this summer – and last summer come to that). You’ll have the night of your life :)

      Great! So glad you managed to see him. I never tire of seeing him live on stage. He’s incredible, isn’t he?!

      Yeah!!! Another Moz fan :) Thanks for your lovely comment and I’ll definitely post the dress, once it’s made. I hope you got to see him in Greece this summer :)
