049 - Project Runway

I am a huge fan of Project Runway. My life revolves around it each season and this latest season has been no exception. Your house is burning down? Terribly sorry, can't help you right now. Project Runway is on! You have a flat tire? Ok, I'll be there as soon as Project Runway is over! Seriously, it's an addiction.

Last night was the season finale and Melissa and I were on pins and needles, fingers and toes crossed, begging the box with with pretty pictures to give us the verdict we were waiting for. Silly to get so worked up over a tv show, but it's one of the very few that truly bring me joy. (Seth Aaron won...yay!)

I too have a knack for sewing and have made everything from Halloween costumes to formals. I haven't designed anything of my own, but I can follow a pattern with the best of them. Last year, (during Project Runway's last season), I was diligently working on the masterpiece the lovely KK is modeling below.

I had such a good time working with her. She's beautiful and the dress fit her perfectly.

The entire dress is silk and chiffon; yards and yards and yards of it. Fully lined, boning in the bodice. I don't even know how many hours I sat crouched over the machine working on this. It's a size 2...I could probably be talked into selling it if any one's interested... :)


  1. I love this dress mom to bad its not any where close to my size in a dress. lol.

  2. I wish I had somewhere nice to wear that to, or else I would totally take it off your hands---Its GORGEOUS

  3. Oh no...spoiler alert! I have it on the DVR and haven't watched it yet!!! :-) :-)

    (I was hoping he'd win....will be fun to watch!)

    If I could talk my body into fitting into it, I'd buy it in a heartbeat! Great work!!!!!!
