ANYWAY, what you see above is another one of my entries in the Project Runway contest. We each randomly chose a holiday-themed bandana from a bag, and our challenge was to create an outfit to reflect that holiday, using the bandana as part of the design. I ended up with Valentine's Day. At first I was happy, because the bandana was one of the prettier ones, but then I began to wonder, "What kind of outfit is typical for Valentine's Day?" Well, all I could think of was lingerie. For twelve out of the fourteen days we were allotted to finish this challenge, I joked about making lingerie and tried to think of something else. On the thirteenth day, I faced facts: I had no better ideas, so I really was going to make lingerie.
Lucky for me, I had a pile of stretch lace on hand, from previous experiments in making undies. Even luckier for me, the pattern on the lace leant itself to forming a bustier-style top for my doll.
The bandana became her dressing gown, embellished with appliques, lace, pearls, and ribbon roses. Unlucky for me, I had none of that on hand and ended up spending $11 to add a few frills!
Tonight is the finale of the real Project Runway. Have you been watching? I am not happy with the final four. I think my Barbie clothes are better than some of the stuff they're showing!
