TFS: Barrel Scrapings

We're in the homestretch, chickens!



Y'know, we're thinking of planning a day of celebration for that glorious day to come when rompers and formal shorts are once again considered out of style. Who's with us?

Having said that, this wasn't a bad entry on Haven's part, even if it's not to our taste.

We like the little bib effect and we like the colors and the proportions. It's not to our taste, but at least it - wait. What's this?

Now we know why the lighting is so bad on the runway. They don't want to give away the fact that NO ONE ON THIS DAMN SHOW KNOWS HOW TO SEW.

Seriously, Bravo, what the hell? PR always had one or two "I don't know what I'm doing" types every season, but they were usually gone by the third or fourth episode. THIS show is FULL of them.

This was cute and surprisingly well done (at least from afar).

He didn't exactly go out on a limb, design-wise, but maybe he's learning that quiet, competent pieces will keep you in the competition longer.

And at least he didn't simply make a dress that looked exactly like the shoes that inspired it, unlike SOME designers...

We're looking at you, Chicken Diva.

It is a flaw in the judging process on this show that a piece like this got summarily ignored by the judges when in fact, he should have been asked to defend it.

It's not a design tragedy - oh, don't get us wrong, it's got issues, for sure. But the main issue is that he simply made a dress that looked EXACTLY like the shoes. Let's pretend we're judges and ignore that for a moment.

We think the colors on this are just fine, actually. We like the silhouette and we don't even mind the bib.

Sure, it's a bit over-constructed (in fact, it looks like construction paper), but it does add some interest to the front of the dress.

We think where he really went wrong was on those sleeves. They added a further level of complexity to a garment at a point when he should have been looking for ways to keep it simple. That bib is complex enough. If he'd gone with a simple sleeveless shift, it could have been a cute dress.

Except of course, that it looked exactly like the shoes that inspired it. That's not inspirational at all. Bad form, Chicken. Step it up this week.

What is UP with wearing hosiery with open-toed shoes?!?!? Has this fashion rule just become passe? I think it looks horrible. The point of wearing an open-toed shoe is to show off your toes, am I right? Wearing dark color hose with sandals make you look dorky.

Ok. enough of that rant.

I agree that "formal shorts" and rompers need to die. Rompers are for children.

Johnny's dress was fugly. I'm sorry but that brown part at the top? Fug.

EPL really brought the Loco this week. Who the heck wants to wear a dress that looks exactly like her shoes? Maybe a 5-year old. The point of wearing a sassy shoe is to show off the shoe, IMHO. A simple dress with interesting details is the way to go. Not the shoe details blown up to life size on the front of your dress. GAK!


"we're thinking of planning a day of celebration for that glorious day to come when rompers and formal shorts are once again considered out of style. Who's with us?"

I'm in!

As for Merlin, I think maybe he was going for a real Aztec-inspired look. But you're right: without the warrior wing sleeves, it might have worked. If the "bib" had been incorporated the way Korto incorporated necklaces, it coulda been a contenduh -- maybe even a knockout.


"Tlo said: It is a flaw in the judging process on this show that a piece like this got summarily ignored by the judges when in fact, he should have been asked to defend it."




Um, yeah. I'd have liked to see him have to explain that he got high while watching 'Pocahontas', and this was the result.

I'd say Chicken was pretty lucky that this dress didn't send him back to his hometown by the shores of the Gitchee Gumie.

With you on the Day of Celebration when rompers & "formal" shorts are no longer seen except on toddlers.

Haven's was o.k. for her tastes - too 80's for me. Johnny's was saved by the strip of blue at the hem.

I agree that Merlin's sleeves were unforgivable. (also, what was that faux wrist corsage??) I think that if the copied pattern had been on a tiny bit smaller scale, it would have been a decent dress (sans Buck Rogers sleeves). But the silhouette!

If he'd achieved the tent silhouette that I assume he was going for - fine! BUT! Maybe because his decoration needed too big a support panel - that model looked 5 or 6 months pregnant in just about every still shot. I didn't notice it on the show, so maybe in movement it wasn't there.

Or maybe it's me.


"Tlo said: Y'know, we're thinking of planning a day of celebration for that glorious day to come when rompers and formal shorts are once again considered out of style. Who's with us?"




I'll bring the bubbly.

Merlin's outfit brings to mind the adage that a well-dressed lady removes one item from her ensemble before going out -- though in his case she could have removed about 27 items and still been fully clothed. The shoe mimicry was bad enough but then he just kept going, and going, and going with the "styling." He and Lidia should have been bottom two.


Amanda in Austin said, "What is UP with wearing hosiery with open-toed shoes?!?!?"

I know! Sheer hose with a cocktail dress and dressy sandals, okay. But if the weather is warm enough for casual sandals, then isn't it too warm for black tights? It's like the seasonal opposite but equally stupid trend of recent years of going barelegged in the middle of winter. I pray that one's over.


Merlin's was a costume. Perhaps he's anticipating the day when "Pocahontas II" comes to the Broadway stage, and the eponymous character needs a maternity dress whilst carrying John Smith's child.

And Haven is anticipating the day when they start re-making the John Hughes' teen comedies from the '80's.

Johnny, at least, produced a garment.


Haven-
Hated it. A big ball of poorly done ugly. Also the shoes are quite ugly.
In that little picture in the corner, she looks exactly like a real estate lady in the South from 15 years ago.

Johnny-
Well the workmanship is better that what he has produced so far, but isn't this the exact same dress that sent the fairy girl (was it Emily?) home on PR in the "green" challenge?

Merlin,
I already confessed to liking this dress. The technique he used to replicate the " jewels" on the shoes is cute. If the dress were unlined (which I think it was originally) and worn over a turquoise colored bikini at a tropical resort, it would look pretty fab. I think Merlin has a lot of skill and I want to see more.


Damnit, I liked the Chicken's dress!

It's not something that I would wear, and maybe its just the shoe design, but:

-at least it was sewn

-it was colorful, as Fern was pushing for

-it looks like a lot of labor and "thought" went into it. Yeah, you can say the design is the same as the shoe, but that was not an easy design to copy.

I do agree with the sleeves. Too Star Trek for me, but I can forgive that.

Overall, I just appreciate that he kept his mouth shut and left the drama for the runway rather than the show's editors.

The little fucker's cocky, but he's serious about what he does, and is there to win. So far his work shows that, whether or not it is to your taste.


Johnny's dress is like a really unattractive figure skating costume.


"What is UP with wearing hosiery with open-toed shoes?!?!? Has this fashion rule just become passe?"

Wearing hosiery with sandals is a custom as old as the hills. Haven't you seen 1940's photos of women dressed casually in sandals with socks, looking great?

Like any fashion-- first it's embraced, then abused, then banished (until ten-fifteen years later, when the cycle repeats itself).


Haven Sugarbaker's wasn't a bad idea, but so poorly constructed. I mean, PINS???? Come ON!

I think her time's up this week, especially since she and and NuKenley get on their high horses about not designing for size zeros.


Ugh, to quote the lovely Laura Bennett, there was a lot of ASS on that runway.


I didn't like any of the designs. This show is a yawn.

~Sewjourner


Oh TLo, please pronounce that glorious day when it does come. It should be instituted as a national holiday.
I will make a romper-shaped cake to be demolished (and will go nicely with GothamTomato's bubbly).


Sewing Siren, you nailed it. Haven looks exactly like that real estate lady.

Miss Haven is on my list today. Looking at those (yet another pair of) hot pants, I do believe they haven't been HEMMED! It looks as though they were chopped off with scissors and sent down the runway.

If they were hemmed, it's the worst job I've ever seen. And the pinning and "tacking" (as she called it) at the neckline -- unforgivable and atrocious.

What is it with this bird? The hot-roller hair, the dated makeup, the "Linda Evans-as-muse" mantra; does she know it's 2009? It's time for her to go. It's just too painful. Sorry dear.


I think it's disgraceful that these people openly admit that they can't sew. Or even worse, ask other designers if they can see all the flaws in the garment from a distance.


I cannot agree more about wanting formal shorts and rompers to go back to the 80s where they belong. And they can take tights, leggings, headbands, and jumpsuits with them.


"Amanda in Austin said...
What is UP with wearing hosiery with open-toed shoes?!?!?"


I. HATE. THAT.


Johnny Samurai's (aka MexiJay) dress has been done a BILLION times over. Nothing new or original. Even Suede did this one.


"If the dress were unlined (which I think it was originally) and worn over a turquoise colored bikini at a tropical resort, it would look pretty fab."

Ooh, I like that idea. Sans sleeves. Maybe even a halter dress.


For me, what set Merlin's awfulness over the top was the hair and makeup. The dress was bad enough, but with the blue eyeshadow and feathering, she looked like a pregnant crack-ho who got stuck in a parade float.


Mary, i totally agree! when i saw Johnny's dress, all i could think of was a figure skater!


OMIGOD! Was Haven's model wearing Reco's shoes? Another copycat who steals ideas!

Barrel scrpaings! I love you guys! I really hated Johnny's entry. Blech. Can we ban illusion netting AND tulle from TFS, please?

El Pollo Loco amuses me. He made a statement this week, which is more interesting (to me) than the lackluster Target sales rack entries from the majority of the contestants this week.

I'm still waiting for the talent and designing to ramp up.


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

"It is a flaw in the judging process on this show that a piece like this got summarily ignored by the judges when in fact, he should have been asked to defend it."

Could someone remind me how the judging process goes on this show?

I know the audience chooses the group of winning looks and the judges determine the designer from that group did the best (or at least f*cked it up the least). But is it the same for those at the bottom?

If so, I think the audience is screwing with the results.

Or, things are so poorly lit that even the live audience can't discern what's happening with the garments going by. Not that you could miss Merlin's however....

I can accept disagreeing with a judge for their stated likes/dislikes, but it's hard to understand the audience's reasoning sometimes. It's too much like American Idol for my taste.

I'm all for a VFTW intervenion.


too many cats

I have just seen the future of TFS (because once a show appears on Bravo, it comes back,repeatedly, like a bad meal.)

Next season, no sewing machines, just hot glue guns and irons. No straight pins but safety pins allowed.
Velcro glue ons, not zippers.


All mediocre entries to me. Some good aspects, some poor.

Haven's was my least favorite. I don't like her aesthetic at all, and she has major execution problems.

I kinda liked Merlin's, but agree with your assessment that he just copied the shoe rather than let himself be inspired by the shoe.

If Haven had tried to make Merlin's dress, I bet it would have been an unmitigated disaster. At least Merlin can execute his ideas well.


These designers who think sewing skills aren't necessary (and, even 'beneath' them) need to be slapped up side the head.

How do they expect to have any insight into how materials behave... what works, and what doesn't... without hands-on technical knowledge? Delusional, egotistical infants.

All hail Reco.

I'd say Chicken was pretty lucky that this dress didn't send him back to his hometown by the shores of the Gitchee Gumie.

--GothamTomato


Agreed. El Pollo Loco's creation was fug, IMHO. What woman wants to wear a tent with a multi-colored bib?

I will also join in the celeberation when "formal shorts" and rompers die as part of fashion.


"They don't want to give away the fact that NO ONE ON THIS DAMN SHOW KNOWS HOW TO SEW."

And that sums up what pisses me off about this show. Even Santino, who proved over and over that he could sew well, got shredded for his glue gun incident with Kara. So did Vincent. This crew seems so arbitrary in their judging, overlooking egregious things like that while ripping far less deserving outfits.

If I ran the world, I'd send an executive from Bravo onto the runway during the fashion show and cancel the whole thing, fire the producers and spank La Miz.

Pfeh.


SUS asked Was Haven's model wearing Reco's shoes? Another copycat who steals ideas!

No, she wasn't. All the shoes worn by the models were the ones chosen by the designers at that Bergdorf's free-for-all. There were a limited number of pairs from which they could choose.


TLo, do we know who designed Johnny and Haven's shoes?
Thanks!


Lilithcat, that was my lame attempt at a joke. You gotta admit that it looked sorta like Reco's and Andrew's fringey quickfire entries...


Haven's design wasn't terrible, it was just made poorly.

Johnny's was boring but inoffensive...if a little 80's. (Not that Haven's wasn't, lol).

Merlin's...sucked. Hardcore. It would have been 10 times better if he had skipped those sleeves. Merlin's was worse than Andrew's, by far (although I'm glad that sniveling prick went home).


Something that bothers me about this show: the judges did see how derivative Merlin's design was of its inspiration. But the format doesn't allow them to call him out on it because he didn't get a low score from the audience, and the audience doesn't necessarily care whether a designer meets his or her brief.

As annoying and arbitrary as the PR judging can be, there's more accountability there.


In that Bravo TV still photo, Merlin's model looks to be about 7 months pregnant. And Andrew got the lame ass "We're not buying it." line??? I hated this dress.


I've got to say, Merlin is a pretty talented maternity designer. Managing to make his model look like she was going to give birth on the runway is an impressive feat.


"I'd say Chicken was pretty lucky that this dress didn't send him back to his hometown by the shores of the Gitchee Gumie.

what does Gitchee Gumie have to do with Merlin?


Merlin's dress is perfect for a BYOP* dinner party.

Needless to say that attitude is irksome to me as well.
Reco said in his blog that Johnny and Haven told him at one point he couldn't be the team leader because he didn't know enough about fashion ,what nerve.
The glueing and unfinished hems don't bother me so much because there is only so much time and you can get your point across without a hem. But the total lack of understanding of the way things work, like Havens neckline here , and Johnnys dress for Tinsel Mort. with the single layer of jersey bandeau that was suppose to support the whole garment. My impression of the two of them is if they had all week they couldn't have figured out how to fix or finish it.

There are a few designers on the show that do appear (to me) to know what they are doing.
Reco, Merlin, Angel, James-Paul, and provisionally Anna and Lidia.

Your title says it all, darlings: Barrel Scrapings, indeed.

I'm also WAY in on Shorts and Rompers Abolition Day.

I'm so bored by Haven's clothing that I could die.

I just hated the brown and purple on Jonny's dress. ack ack ack, I just coughed up a furball.

Didn't know what to think about EPL's piece. No, it wasn't loud, but it was very overdesigned.


Also, according to Lidia's blog entry on Bravo the shoes she had for her model were 2 sizes too big! The poor girl actually fell before going on the runway.
That is a very mean thing for Bravo to do to the model. She could have been hurt and it could also hurt her chances of getting booked if potential cleints see the show.

After this week's challenge, the jury is out on James Paul for me. If I see another asymmetrical from him, he's hanging by a thread.

I think that Angel does have talent, but using glue and not finishing her garmets is making me wonder about her ability.

The judging does need tweaking.

I actually like that the audience gets to judge on what they like or feel is well done or saleable. It could be a refreshing dose of perspective on the hothouse of designers/challenges/weird challenge hurdles/judges. BUT it shouldn't be used to short-circuit our chance to hear the judges' evaluating the looks that catch their eyes as good/bad/other.

Pretty much it boils down to me wanting more time to see the design, construction, presentation and critical analysis (with designer-judge interaction) arc. Which is what I wanted with PR, as well. I think it's the time limits of the format that frustrate me as much as anything.


I am SO with you on the rompers and shorts. From your lips to the Fashion Gods' ears!!!


my eyes! My eyes! MY EYES!


Once you learn how to use the potty, then your romper days are over, IMO.

And I have seen about 5 people who do NOT look ridiculous in formal shorts.


"This is the perfect argument for enforcing immigration laws."




I guess we should all go back to where we came from then.

--GothamTomato


It really is a design tragedy. Even people that thought it had potential wanted to remove or change at least 7 components. Merlin is kitchy,kitchy-koo -koo.


Yeah I totally agree with you on the shorts issue. They have got to go. Far, far away.


Merlyn, our chicken diva is getting so quiet lately, but not with his ugly design, who in the hell is going to wear this piece, in circus maybe? She looks like she is 9 months pregnant, lol. Not to mention the fact on his "audition" disgusting video on bravotv.com in his underwear can’t wait to see that in the next episode.


Back to Sugarbaker, I'm glad anyone noticed that she is making the same pair of short shorts yet again, not to mention that Daniella made the same shorts in Tinsley challenge. Sugarbaker can you be more original this time? I guess, no.


Merlin shoulda put that dress over floaty palazzo pants. It would be believable resort wear, no? Tacky, yes -- but believable.

PS - Is he wearing a trucker hat there?


Jonny, ok I thought this one should definitely go home, kinder garden nightmare for 5 year old… Lock of style, creativity, COLOR!!!, and for whom he was designing for??? don’t even want to go further.

Agreed. This is Hiyawatha's land.

After all seeing those 3 designs, Andrew, not the worst one but not the favorite, the choice of colors so grandma and the shape?! I think if he would choose different colors the shape might be ok. Bye, bye Andrew, I wish he could stay a little longer, Monolo guy was just ready to make out with panty Christ, but that didn’t help him, LOL big time when LeMiz got in the middle.
As for tiny ballerina, I think she made the mess on purpose just to get an extra airtime, we finally saw her speaking and interacting with judges. I have to say those 2 at the bottom were definitely not the worse to me. Andrew’s was saleable at least for an average Wall Mart consumer. Although, the execution played a huge part on Lidia’s outcome, but the design esthetic was definitely there and far form boring, I guess she is not America’s Next Top Seamstress. And yes, I do think Monolo guy was way to harsh on her. Oh, LOL on Lidia’s model, no matter that the dress is the model must sell it, otherwise she should be fired, wanted to see what if Reco’s dress would be worn by her. Did anyone besides Sewing Siren noticed that her models shoes were way too big? Oh and hate to admit it, but I also read some of their blogs, and Lidia writes the details what went wrong, LOL on the shoes vs. model, it’s truly a disaster, the shoes were 2 sizes bigger. I wonder if producers just poorly staged the drama between those two.


i really relish the fact that Merlin actually made a dress, or rather picked a shoe, that was not in the tired old "BLACK + BOLD COLOR" category. I swear that is all Haven can do, and ditto for Johnny, Daniella, and JP. When it came out I nearly ignored the sleeves because of the richness of color! Thank Jesus!

I agree with those saying Haven is the next to get thee boot. I would be ever so pleased. I just hope Le Miz can keep his claws sheathed with the next judge, meowww.


Gothom Tomato said... "Um, yeah. I'd have liked to see him have to explain that he got high while watching 'Pocahontas', and this was the result."

Heeee!

Good call on the sleeves though - that IS what pushes this over into "Thanksgiving Pageant-Grade 3." Would have worked as a halter too. Maybe.

I didn't mind Jonny's. I didn't think it was outstanding, but it was kinda cute. Believeable.

Haven. Ech. Wish she'd go home.

I feel that as a whole, this group is WAY back to the level of (or below) PR season 1. Rarely a sleeve, some seriously bizarre and/or literal 'inspiration.' Weird.

Oh -- and count me in on the post-romper celebration. Yick.

whitney denelle said, "I agree with those saying Haven is the next to get thee boot. I would be ever so pleased. I just hope Le Miz can keep his claws sheathed with the next judge."

So agree with your first point. Haven is living on borrowed time. Her consistently poor execution is unforgivable, and she's boring.

So disgree with your second point! Izzy Mizzy's bitchiness is wonderful, and when it's directed at an annoying guest judge, it's delicious! And then, when our genius bloggers do one of their brilliant screencaps on the set-to, well, the day is complete!

Whoever called Johnny Sumo "MexiJay" -- how dare you? Johnny can sew like Jay only in his most drug-addled dreams! And Johnny also has zero personality.

As much as I dislike the pursed-lipped Daniella Pepper, I want Haven and Johnny gone as soon as possible. They're so boring and untalented that they're not even fun to dish!


SUS said, Lilithcat, that was my lame attempt at a joke. You gotta admit that it looked sorta like Reco's and Andrew's fringey quickfire entries...

You are right about the fabulous screencaps, that's for sure!!! It just made me squirm watching it, thinking how even La Nina would never react so unprofessionally! But I guess that's why we have these 2 different shows, eh?


Go Merlin!!! WE love you!!!!!!!


Am I crazy? I thought Merlin's dress was actually interesting.


Although I do agree with Tlo on the sleeves. What happened to Chicken Diva? She started so strong.


Quoting again: "They don't want to give away the fact that NO ONE ON THIS DAMN SHOW KNOWS HOW TO SEW."
It's as if on Top Chef they had contestants who didn't know how to clarify butter. Or make a white sauce. Or separate eggs. Or or or...


One look at the Chicken's dress and all I could think of was Lupe. I think it was "The Clothes Off Your Back" where she did something that looked like rick-rack braid on steroids. And now the Chicken gives us a flashback.


Johnny's was perfectly o.k. He is unwatchable, he reminds me of Quasimodo, but the effort was far better than the other 2.

I don't dislike Haven, she's just sub-par & anyone can tell she'll be gone in a minute.

Merlin is g*d-awful. I couldn't stand to be in the same room with him, he is noxious. Anyone that noxious is bound to come forth with matching awfulness, and this ridiculous effort is one example. The color palette was fine, every other aspect of it hurt the eyes -- no one thing (e.g., by themselves the sleeves were o.k.). The placard in front looked like one of those Grade 1/Pre-School paper plates the kid comes home with & presents to mom with the little kid's homage to Thanksgiving or Indians with stuff folded, glued, weaved, painted on it to look like a turkey or some such design. So, were the spineless judges speechless or what? Are they under Merlin's spell? Or afraid of him because he's a minority? The shoes were equally fugly that he embellished the pattern from.

I know Andrew folded for "reasons" but it was a sacrificial "kill" --look at what they let pass!

I don't even sew -- I am in awe of a well done garment (I am a proficient needleworker - crewel embroidery, which can be beautiful)and do appreciate the stress these contestants are under, the time shortage, it is survival to them. Still, this bunch isn't very sympathetic and has for the most part has zero personal appeal. Forgettable in every way. One season of this debacle will be enough. Zero chemistry all the way around.


Please stop calling Haven "Sugarbaker". She's not worthy.

I mean, that....thing, that huge red bib that looked like one of those floppy ties business women wore in the 80s, except 700 times bigger; the shorts/romper; the crappy workmanship; the absolute horror of it all. I'm expecting her to make some culottes any minute now.

I'm totally in for the celebration of "that glorious day to come when rompers and formal shorts are once again considered out of style". I'll do the catering.


Barb H said "Still, this bunch isn't very sympathetic and has for the most part has zero personal appeal. Forgettable in every way."

I totally agree! This group of designers is (so far at least) TOTALLY unappealing to me; reading their (whiny) blogs makes me like them even less. They all seem pretty miserable being on this show.

I didn't hate Merlin's dress - at least it was interesting and well-made. Haven's outfit was horrific; Johnny's was just boring.

I REALLY wanted to like this show but so far I'm "just not buying it". Is there a chance that it will get better, or is it too late at this point?????

Nah, I'm already prepped for NuKenley's outing. She and Haven Sugarbaker are already bitching and moaning about their "fat" models, and NuKenley goes on to hurl racial insults at Reco.

She's a royal bitch, and not even in a good way. She's just sour and nasty and thinks her shit smells like roses.

That's why I could never do a reality show, because I would've socked the bitch dead in her grill by episode two.
