This week the designers were challenged to design an adult ensemble (fashionable) based on their favorite children's literature character. Catherine, the Project Selvedge 2012 winner not only inspired this week's challenge with her blog: www.FawnsandFoes.typepad.com but she helped to judge and sponsor the show as well!
The budget for this week's challenge was limited to $35 and $45 for the winner of the LED challenge, Joanna.
The Designers and Their Models
The winner, Jazmine, and her model inspired by Prince Lir from the book The Last Unicorn

And since there have been three shows where no designers were eliminated...tonight the judges made the decision to cut Christine, and her stinky cheese dress. Thank you for participating Christine!
This week we were assigned Cigarette Girls for a fun and vintage inspired challenge. Taking inspiration from the 50’s, designers were asked to make a garment that embraces the traditional meaning of burlesque. The garment needs to be theatrical and have a sense of humor. Unlike their usual show, this time the Cig girls will be showing for a family friendly crowd. The garments will represent the individual personalities of each Cig Girl. They had their pick of bargain basement cottons totaling 10 yards, which is a lot!

The Architecture of Style Challenge is about style and fit. Who is your style icon? Design a garment that reflects your icon’s style, and make sure it fits your model. Took a Sewing Essentials class with Kate that developed their skills
Supplies will be: $40 at the shop plus your choice of 2 yards from this bin of random fabrics left over from our sale. Christine got $50 to spend.
We welcome our newest contest Erin, we are thrilled to have her however she had to be punished for her late arrival with 3 yards of white linen cotton as her only supplies.
