This is made from one of those Simplicity Project Runway patterns - I think it's supposed to be a sort of a-line dress but there is a whole lotta material in that skirt to not be belted, and look how adorable a belt makes it!

Did I mention that it features the incredibly awesome David Bowie?? The Ziggy face is from a pajama tank top I got at Hot Topic years ago and didn't know what to do with. The image was cut off just above the forehead and I vacillated for ages over what to do with it. The idea to recreate his hair, applique style, just popped up the other morning, and there you have it. It happened during the construction of the dress, so I call it a happy coincidence. I'm gonna wear this dress at the weekend if I can find a suitable cardy or something to go with. W00t!

Remember the time he ate my goldfish and you lied to me and said I never had a goldfish? Then why'd I have the bowl Bart?

Why.

Did I Have.

The Bowl??
