Once upon a time my phone rang in work:
- hello..june speaking.
- june...it's gill, I have the best news in the world for you, you will never guess what is going to happen soon...
-gill, i have to make clear that unless this is something about kid rock, im gonna be disappointed by this hyper introduction.....
......and so it went on.
And that's how it happened...kid rock came to UK, did a show in London and Dublin (both of which i went to...lol!) and we had a fanTABulous time at both.
So i bought a couple of t-shirts, including one of those big shapeless standard tour t-shirts...not the kindof thing i tend to wear. So i made some modifications...i cut off the side seams and sleeves and cut straight across the neck, hemming the front to the back with a straight seam horizontally (with a reinforced band so that the neck will not stretch or sag - important because these t-shirts aren't usually great quality material). I brought it in at the sides so that it would fit tight and (here's the cheaty bit) bought a cheap long-sleeved top, removed the sleeves and sewed them into place in my tour t-shirt!!! This was because i didn't have enough material to make sleeves and couldn't get the right shade of black in my material shop!
