You know when you have so much to blog about that you don't know where to start? So I'm not going to start at all.


Did anyone watch the idol finals tonight? See the maroon dress that Kate wore at the beginning and the brown dress that Emily wore at the end? My Mum made those =)

Mum's a sample Machinist (i.e. makes the first copy after the designers design it). She worked for Lisa Ho for about 6 years and then Dinnigan & Morissey. I wasn't the happiest girl last yr when she didn't take up an offer from Sass & Bide (imagine the discounts!)

But Mum’s always very blasé about everything and I usually don’t find out till after the fact. Like mum would work backstage at the Mercedes Fashion week every year and fit Models like Sarah O’Hare and Elle McPherson without having a clue who they were until they were on TV!

Last week mum had to stay back at work for a lot of over time because she was in a rush to get some dresses finished. When I asked what she was making she casually mentioned that ‘oh…had to make some dresses for those girls on idol’

Mum’s a funny one.

Wow, that's awesome... If I was a girl, I'd be all "Make me one!"

You're mum's way in the fashion business. Good on her, and good for you :)

those girls had their outfits custom made?!?!?!
that's... pretty cool.

Bosco: yeh mum use to make a lot of my dresses for formals etc, but now days I just buy them because you never know what you really want till you see it.

Di: I think that for something like this you'd probably expect it to be custom made, although they are just standard size 12 dresses. They were sponsored by 'Events' because Events outsourced the dress making to the company mum works for.

That dress Kate wore is hot... its the same one she wore a few weeks ago in black right?

your mum is a genius Im telling you! A genius!

Yes it's the same dress as a few weeks ago in black! they had to especially find that material to make another for her because she liked it so much - very observant!
