These are the dresses from our Project Runway challenge. We each were tasked with choosing a fabric we hadn’t worked with before and making a dress without a pattern. There were five contestants and all the dresses were so cute. Mine isn’t pictured, but I’ll post a picture soon. Sarah worked with silk and I thought had the most well made and well tailored dress. It’s the burgundy one with the pretty trim. Kate’s won the cutest prize, and who wouldn’t have guessed with that baby in a matching dress! And Emily’s was the most fashion forward with the vintage-inspired top and Pucci-esque bottom. I don’t know what mine was, ladies?
The oohing and aahing was followed by dinner at my house. We had a salad, white beans with pecorino and sage, and manicotti. The girls were so kind as to bring dessert. We also had apple crisps with ice cream!
We’re going to continue with our own, personal project runway. The next project is lingerie, inspired by Angry Chicken who made the most gorgeous slips and what she calls “tap pants.” We mentioned our plan when the boys came to pick up their wives and they were all giddy with thoughts of lace and ties and frills and were very disappointed to find out that lingerie can mean PJs, slips, and boring things, too! At least one in the group has plans to make maternity flannel pajamas.
