PPR Challenge #6 – House of Cornish

This week the challenge was “Glamping”
It was so fun to see the designers get out of the work room. The schedule they keep is so not normal and unsustainable that you could see people regain their sanity. And lets face it, those tents MAY have been bigger than the tiny hotel rooms they are forced to share. Argh.

I had a “get away” of my own last weekend. And in all the crazy that is moving, it was good to be in a space that was a different pace. We hung out by the pool at a friends’ place in Sonoma. The air is dry, and the oak leaves from the live oaks blow all around. When I saw this fabric that changed from black to blue to fuchsia… well, you had me at fuchsia. Water. Or leaves. But transitions for sure!

Let’s head to the runway!

I gave myself the challenge of real sleeves. (strapless or Kimono sleeves are easier with a doll that huge plastic hands, and silly pokey thumbs.

I wanted a 50’s inspired neckline and nipped in waist.

It is an elegant look. I think the white means that it could read “day” event as well as having the glamor of a night event.

I think I am safe. But then again, Hammer pants won! (They WON!) so who knows what kind of head trauma the judges suffered. Those pants were an abomination. I am in Tim Gunn’s camp on that.

    • Glad Sonoma could inspire. You found better material than I was going to suggest. WE have some cocoanut matting, fence netting for erosion control and old dog towels that you could have used.
