Project Runway rehash!

Guess who made it to the next round of the Fabric Mart Fabricista Challenge? Me!! Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me. Next week's challenge is to create the perfect little red many possibilities! Don't worry, I won't be making anything like the red number Char whipped up last night.

Spoilers ahead...

Highlight: I don't know if it was editing, or if these designers somehow grew a soul, but FINALLY we had a "real woman" challenge where nobody complained about their model. I mean, the designers chose who to approach, which helped I'm sure.

Lowlight: So much second-hand embarrassment while the designers were in the park. How horrible. And what about Sean rejecting the woman who was too short? Cold. I don't know if I'm sad about this or not, but it was too bad that it was a makeover challenge and nobody seemed to need one. A professional ballerina?? C'mon!

Best garment: I don't like Korina. She's becoming a "one-way monkey" as Dmitry would say. Haven't we seen this exact jacket before? Anyway, let's pretend I've never seen her jackets, I liked it and thought the dress was cute. AB has a dress with a pleated skirt like that, and I've always wanted one for myself. Zac is right, it's very difficult to do (impossible in polyester) so it is impressive that she could accomplish that in her time frame. But if she becomes even more insufferable I might have to fast forward through her face.

Worst garment: Alexander's definitely seemed like the worst, although I can't forgive Amanda for showing off a random stranger's butt. TOO SHORT!

Best line of the night: "This is one of the most hideous things I've ever seen in my existence." --Tim

I wonder what would have happened if Alexander had finished his ugly garment. I think Char might have gone home instead, because they mostly slammed him for how unfinished it was. About the whole zipper thing: if it had happened to any one of the other designers they would have done the same thing. They would have wanted a bit of grace or time to fix it. And does anyone want to stay in the competition because Char's model broke a zipper? Isn't that a little petty? What do I know, right!?

Next week: More unconventional team nonsense.


  1. I was sad that Char nor her model talked more about why she went 'sassy' instead of 'preschool teacher' and that the model didn't speak up that SHE ASKED FOR THE SHORT SHORTS!!! i could've sworn she mentioned her husband being in a rock band as a sort of, "I never have anything to wear to his shows" and that's why Char went the route she did.

    They were being sooooo dramatic about the zipper. Like Tim said, if it were a challenge with professional models it would have been too bad so sad.

    Kini underwhelmed me this time. Korina's was cute but that blue leather did nothing for me. The skirt was pretty awesome and the bodice was sad. I'm so surprised Heidi didn't say the top was sad.

    Finally, I thought Amanda's was worse than Alexanders. Whew!

    (Happy safety! hahaha!)

  2. Yay for making it to the next challenge! I must say, it had to be difficult for the judges to make a decision, I was impressed with all of the entries.

    Oh my, Amanda's dress was so too short, yikes. Loved Emily's. Korina is indeed a one-way monkey (that made me laugh, I loved Dmitry!).

  3. Hi Beth, I just wanted to say that I've enjoyed being part of this challenge with you. I hope that everyone is okay, and that you'll be back to sewing soon. You are very talented! Keep up the good work!
