And Sew On:(41:09)
Gigi is working on a size 10 Bias slip dress. It is draped, and the paper pattern is ready. Need to sew it

Watching old Project Runway episodes for inspiration.  Michael Costello has designed a bias dress,
but i cannot use it for inspiration. It is cut so low in the back that there is no room for any foundation garment.  

Also, judges bash garments as “matronly “.
