    Who saw this? That one guy with the 50's hair could be Ryan Reynolds brother! They look so much alike! I am NOT a clothes horse. but I do so love that program! Its a good thing I do NOT live in NY because this chubby body would definitely NOT look good in ANY of the designs. The designs I really liked, were made fun of and vise versa on the others. What did YOU think?

    I always watch Project Runway. I like to watch the garment construction and the sewing process.

    I love this show, too. I have a quilting buddy who is also into the show, and we usually have to talk after each episode to talk about the designs, and the desingers. I think most of what they make is beyond what anyone I know would wear, in fact if it looks like something I would wear, it is sure to lose.
    And I loved the bird seed dress tonight!

    It was amazing to see what the designers came up with; and their creativity at work.
    Love that show.

    I have to admit that I preferred the dress of the designer that got kicked off last night the best. But then I came home from my honeymoon to sprouting birdseed all over the place. We had that in place of rice.

    Did they all go to design school first? And how in the world can they sketch the human body so well? I can't even draw a stick person!

    Occasionally one of the judges will say, "That's terrible. It looks like something your 70 yr old grandmother would wear!" I'm a 70 yr old grandmother and I would never wear what he is referring to. I think he has never seen a 70 yr old body that has never had cosmetic surgery. Does he think we wear sleeveless tops? Does he think we wear our skirts 3 or 4 inches above our knees? When he says this I think the outfit is just too modest for their taste. Let me model one of their "grandma outfits" and he would never call them a grandma outfit again~LOL In fact I would love to see them take the contestants to a nursing home instead of a hardware store. If you want a real challenge do it where the body itself is a challenge, where the model can't wear heels, the hair is only grey, the face can't be improved by make-up - where the clothes have to live or die only by themselves. Where they have to fit or they won't go on at all. Where they need elastic waists because just because the waist fit at 8 am doesn't mean it will fit at noon.

    I love this! You've struck a real chord. That is what "reality TV" should be about.

    I'm not 70 yet nor am I a grandma, but fitting my body would still be a huge challenge. The dress form would look more like a tackling dummy!

    I do watch the show occasionally, but only for the actual runway part. I hate all the whining and bickering. I can get that from my husband!

    Tanya-That is right on the money! haha Can't you just see someone OUR age modeling a mini mini with underarm flab??hahah I keep saying that a.....more.....mature set of designers would design for US!! Now, you all are probably CRINGE when I say this, but I really like Rosanne's new "look". It looks comfortable and deserves a second look! haha - see I told you you would cringe - but I like it!

    ok, wee wee pad guy should have been eliminated. i do like him, but his design was no talent at all. and bird seed guy should have won, it was beautiful. and besides, the winner used a DOG BED fabric for the top. the judges gave umbrella guy (the one who had to leave the show) a hard time for using umbrella fabric - there is no consistency there!!! always LOVE this program. i love all the different personalitys, not too mention that talent.

    Stitchinwitch,
    Yes, I did cringe at that one. I thought Roseanne looked like she was wearing a sack. No shape, no style and very unflattering.

    A year or two ago I wrote Threads magazine and asked please to find or invent some tops patterns for older women with real bodies and batwing upper arms. That some of us had enough money to buy nice things but where in heck were they? Lane Brant has some neat clothes, nice things, but even they aren't quite....well, lunch with the club at a nice restaurant type. Or maybe I should look through their catalog. A couple of years ago my sister and I looked through our local store, hunting for pretty gifts for a very large favorite niece. They had some pretty day clothes there, with loose sleeves but not overly done.

    I got a nice reply from Threads, but to date haven't noticed anything like that.

    I loved the bird seed dress, too.
    But I hated the dog bed shirt, looked like a big puff ball. If that had been someone larger than a size one, it would have looked terrible.
    I think sometimes they just pick a designer and whatever they do they will like, keeps the drama going in the show.
    I am surprised at how good the woman from South America (former Miss something) who has only been sewing for four months did. I didn't want to like her, but she is really good.

    Glad to see there are some other PR people on this board.
    I for the life of me could not see what was so wonderful about Oliver's dress with the fluffy fake Sherpa and the hamster bedding skirt!!!
    I too thought that the bird seed dress was the winner and all the complaining about it being too short...that's a laugh when you see the shortness of Heidi's skirts but maybe that is why she got "overruled" by the other judges LOL
    Miss Trinidad Tobago has been a pleasant surprise but it seems a bit fishy that she does so well but has very little sewing experience? I guess we will see.
    I was sad to see Josh C go but for that kind of competition you can't hold back and although his was cute it wasn't up to the parameters of the competition
