Project Project Runway: the Finale

Just like the contestants who are up in the wee hours getting their collections together - we were up this morning before dawn. (Collecting our wits about us, and feeding a hungry kid. I actually had to wait for the sun to come up to photograph the final look!)

Here it is.
Red Carpet moment
The dress itself. Its a strapless silk dress, cut on the bias.
It has enough weight to hold itself out in the back, without being a mermaid or a bustle.
On the top, is an embroidered organza coat
It has body, and stands on it's own.
embroidery detail
And true to my aesthetic, I kept to my floral motif, without going "cray-cray"

Sheer over coat
I'm really pleased with my look. I think it is red-carpet-worthy. I cannot wait to see what the judges think.
Kat went full on and put a mini collection on the runway. Her looks are beautiful. Micheal Kors said she showed real range. ! She has ready-to-wear looks as well as elegant looks that would be worthy of fashion week. Heidi said she wants to wear this one.

What fun we have had! 13 weeks of sewing for Barbie!
What will our next challenge be?
And more importantly, who will join us?!

Next season you need to step it up and use Amelia as your model/muse.
