Project Runway recap

Hi all! My recap is late this week, but I think you'll forgive me. My baby sister got married this weekend! Hopefully later this week I'll have some pictures showing off the bridesmaids' dresses, which I made, in action. My sister's best friend also made the wedding dress, and her own matron of honor dress. The mother of the groom made her outfit. It was awesome being surrounded by so many me-mades! Oh, and celebrating love and all that jazz :P

Spoilers ahead...

Best moments: The guy fishing in the middle of the show. Heh. I also liked this challenge. They're doing well with challenges this year.

Worst moments: Amanda's meltdown(s), blech. I can't stand it when people say they don't know what the judges want. The judges do NOT want you to pander to them and try making them happy, they want good design. So design good.

Gabrielle's scissors don't work? What? She can't thread a serger? I'm so confused.

Does Blake know how to use a sewing machine?

Best garments: The piping on Candice's jacket top thingy was gorgeous, but I think her dress was kind of bondagey. Edmond's was cool, but I wish he would have made a jumpsuit. I can't say that there's anything else I loved, which seems to be a common theme this season.

Worst garments: Amanda's mall maternity gown, just bad. And Blake's looked like a fish, though I guess that doesn't mean it wasn't innovative? 

Best quote: (Should I just change this to "best Swapnil quote"?)

"I have been waiting for this moment for a very long time...that sounded like a musical." --Swapnil

Honorable mention: "Ohhhh the big hand is the minutes." --Blake

Gabrielle probably deserved to be out for that truly awful "dress" she "made" but I was surprised it wasn't Amanda. Typically someone who has been in the bottom three times in a row doesn't keep getting second chances. Yet somehow she finds a way to keep complaining about how other people are worse than her. And Blake's win was a complete head-scratcher to me. I mean, I was a little distracted watching the episode, so maybe there is a way it made sense that I missed? Like, the challenge was secretly "who can make the most volume" or something?

Next week: More teams and a way to inflict pain on each other with paintball...what a good idea.


  1. All this. That's all.

    Wasn't that Amanda complaining about how "mediocre" Candice is? Uh, srsly??

  2. I was 100% sure that Blake's garment was in the bottom. Dude cannot sew at all and he can't tell time?! Even if he is playing dumb, that's just so not cute. I may have a grudge against him already.
    Amanda seems really confused and overwhelmed in every challenge. I don't think she'll be around long.
    I am excited to see them play paintball though.

    1. I was spoiled on the winner since it took me a couple days to watch the episode, but otherwise I definitely would have thought he was in the bottom. You would think Amanda would be better prepared, mentally, since she was there once and eliminated before.


I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to comment below.
