#229 – Project Project Runway – Challenge 3

Challenge 3: It’s a Party

Challenge: Create an outfit & accessory using items from a party store. You can spend $100. The judges do not respond well to items that correspond to fabric (i.e. tablecloths). You can use a base fabric like muslin. Make sure to show us the items you start with this week.

Show your accessories from the Piperlime accessory wall.

Time: You have 14 hours to complete this challenge.

This has been my favorite challenge so far!

(Can you tell I actually took the time to put in darts at the bust line of the muslim underdress? I think it really helped with the fit.)

Chloé is ready to hit the red carpet or the hottest party in town in this shimmering dress made with ribbons from the party store. The ribbons were turned into 1/4-inch circles using a hole-punch & then layered on a muslin base. It is accessorized with a chunky silver latex bracelet made from a balloon & some strappy silver heels from Piperlime.

Let me just tell you about gluing all those little circles of ribbon on…
IMG_5293It took up most of my time but in the end I think the effect was worth it. I love the way it catches the light & how the silver ribbon almost looks like mother of pearl.

      you rocked it!!!
      Heidi said she would wear it. Micheal said "well done". Nina said "perfect, great length".
      And the guest judged talked to you after the show about one for herself.
      Congratulations! You won.
      I'm sure our readers will agree.

    • Thank you *blushing* I tried to channel a little Laura Bennet with this one. I also tried to think of the "story" that Michael is always looking for.
