Season 14, Episode 5 Project Runway Review!


Hey Everyone!
Here with another Project Runway Review!
This episode was filled with a whole alot of drama.
We had Means Girls, Shade, Tears, Lies, Jealousy and Throwing people under the bus, all in that order.This episode is where you actually see the claws come out and how the designers really feel about each other.


Let get down to the Nitty Gritty! 
First we start with Amanda whining about her being in the bottom (AGAIN) and her design being better than alot of other designers. 
NOT!


They all meet on the Runway, where Heidi and Tim are there waiting with paintball guns and overalls. They were separated into groups girls against the guys, plus one Merline.

Ashley was the last to get picked and Heidi even expressed how shock she was that Ashley won 2 challenges and was picked last. Ashley is now over the whole situation. 

Challenge is called:

Capture The Fabric!!
Get as much fabric as you can, while your opponents shoots the shit out of you with the paintball colors. LOL! Tim then tells them they are using their overalls as fabric and using the other fabric as supplement material to work with, plus paint in the workroom.
No Mood Today!!

 The designer's also had to use Sally Beauty Supple Nail Stylist to make the models nails look fabulous on the runway.

Each group will create a 6 Piece Collection that is cohesive..
It's a 2 day Challenge!




Project Runway
Review

Girls colors are like an Easter Bunny has thrown up all over their fabric.
Too Pastel and Pretty in Pink from me..
From the start in the workroom the ladies weren't having a clear vision of where their collection was going. One was making a long skirt. One wanted one to make a long jacket.
They were all over the place, Ashley decides to take couple of steps back because she feels that the girls really didn't want her. She tried to direct them to get a concept before anything but they aren't listening. So they destroyed all of their white fabric by painting everything.
Asses up shit creek without a paddle.

I'm over Candice already.
I really thought she was cool but the BITCH is really fake to me.


After the Runway:

They threw poor Ashley under the bus and Kelly Osborne said that this was a BITCH FEST and it most certainly was. She said it was everybody's fault not just Ashley. One by one the girls were calling Ashley's name out to be sent home, except Laurie. She really and truly spoke up for her.
Even Blake spoke up and told the girls how mean they were to Ashley.

LOSERS


Ashley's look was nice to me. It was better than alot of the other girls.
Sorry Losers!

SAFE


Candice really needed to sit her as down. She does the same thing over and over. 
STOP IT!
Heidi said it was over-worked and tortured.

 SAFE


Kelly's dress was ill-fitting and messy. 
I couldn't believe she didn't go home.
Zac called it a Mermaid Raving Skirt..


SAFE

Laurie's outfit was nice. 
She was the only person to have Ashley's back when the other girls whispered behind her back.  
She told Ashley that they were going to throw her under the bus and told the judge that the group had no clear vision or concept about the challenge. 


SAFE


This Bullshit Lindsey sent down the runway made my skin crawl.
Why would you send something so dreadful and depression down the runway?

SAFE


Amanda must have really thought she was doing something great.
It reminded me of the Parachute Challenge, season before last.
Nina called it another maternity dress and she was DEAD WEIGHT..

LOSER, So happy she's gone.. 


The Guy's + Merline did something inspired by the 1950's.
They wanted to WOW judges and got off to a great start.  The guys + Merline then decided to make their own pattern from the paint provided, a kind of Jackson Pollock-esque. 
They were working a rolling with their concept and designs. 

WINNERS


Blake's dress was very sexy and blended well with the collection..
Loved that back..

SAFE

Jake's was cute, modern 50's inspiration.

SAFE

Joseph's looks like and updated grandma. 



Merline's coat was OK!

SAFE

Swapnil's look was nice always, he took the shoe, cut it up and sewed it to lace up the dress.

SAFE

Edmond's dress was charming like something that Grace Kelly would wear. 

WINNER

Thanks for joining me for another Project Runway Review..

Until Next Time..
PR IT CHIC!!!

New Orleans Style Homemade Yaka-Mein!!
If you're not form New Orleans, then you probably will not know what this is. But if you do, then here's the recipe for "Yaka-Meat". Yaka-Meat originated http://www.noladefender.com/content/bowl-mystery. Link above to make a long story short..  
Ingredients below:

2 pounds of stew meat beef 3 or 4 quarts of water 2 cubes of beef bouillon cubes Black Pepper to taste Salt to taste Garlic Powder to taste Onion Powder to taste Kitchen Bouquet 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce Half Bottle Soy Sauce Half Bottle Any Louisiana Hot Sauce Long Green Onions Boiled Eggs

 I know it looks a little gross but believe me, the outcome is delicious!  Put Meat, Cubes,  Seasoning, Kitchen Bouquet in a big pot, let it simmer for about 5 minutes or until the beef is browned. Add the 3-4 quarts of water and half bottles of Worcestershire and Soy sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and let cook about 2-3 hours or until beef is tender enough to fall apart.

 Looking at YT, again and I saw the cutest leather tote that I had to make. First, I made a mini purse, just to see if I could so it. Then I decided to make the larger version.

DIY Jil Sander Inspired Pyramid Mini Bag.

Hey Everyone!
I just received this faux croc leather in the mail yesterday and as soon as I looked at it, I know exactly what I wanted to do. I'd been eyeing Jil Sander's purses and clutches and knew I had to make something inspired from her beautiful collections.   
It took about 3 1/2 hours to make and was really easy once you get your pattern down,,
She's not very big but big enough for your phone, makeup, money and keys to fit in just fine..



Here's another view of her..
I need to make one in every color..




This is the original Jil Sander's purse based on the replica.   Materials needed:

Not even a 1/2 of yard of faux or vinyl of your choice.
Zipper
Purse Accessories of your choice.
Loop Ring
Tassel
Loop Clip



Let's begin.  Cut 2 pieces of paper 6 x 6 


With one of the 6 x 6 paper. Put a dot in the middle of the page and take a ruler and run and line from the bottom to the end making a triangle.


Cut lines to make shape of Triangle


 Cut 4 Triangles and 1 Square.


From the Beach to the City... Sewing! Tunic time...

Cynthia Rowley - Simplicity 2854..Well this year my family and I are taking 2 trips in one... We going to the beach and back home to New Orleans (my hometown).. I want to make a couple of pieces that I can transition in both places.. Well I think I found something else.. I love tunics.... In blogs to come I will take pictures of tunics I've sewn through the years.  
Simplicity 2584 View B: 

This pattern was one of my first pattern that I purchased... years.. I was too scared to try the yoke (neckline), that I put it in the back of my patterns..I went to Wal-Mart and purchased this Home Decor, Linen-like fabric..  I couldn't pass up $3 per yard, so I got 3 yards.
 Advice: Read your patterns and when you can't understand them. read them again.. I have a tendency to look and skim through patterns. This one had me praying.
Below: I love how it came out.. I know I'll be making a few more for the trip, some in contrasting colors... I can put flip flops on for the beach and we…
