Project Runway Recap: 3 Dreamy Dresses We're Making After This Week's Show on Bravo

Actions

Designing for models and a high-fashion runway is obviously tons of fun. But creating dream dresses for everyday women — especially those who give their all serving their communities — gives creative satisfaction a whole new meaning. That's exactly what the designers were tasked with this week, and their gorgeous dresses (and the awesome women who rocked them!) have us feeling inspired to twirl in our own eye-catching DIY looks.

Pretty in Peplum

One of the designers wowed the judges with his choice of electric blue fabric and a flawless peplum design. Take a cue from his success and make your own sophisticated outfit that features a pretty pop of volume at the waist.

Learn how to sew the flirty peplum by adding lining, topstitching, clipping the curves and attaching it to the skirt. Then you'll attach the skirt to bodice and the side panels to the front, grading and topstitching seams as you go.

A Retro Design

The winning look this week was full of glamorous throwback vibes, so channel that retro mojo and make your own vintage dress with some modern flair.

Let's Sharpen Your Skills!

On every episode of Bravo’s Project Runway, you can bet a designer will struggle with something creatively. If only they had Bluprint on the brain! Each week, we’ll highlight a few of our favorite mishaps (been there!) — and share easy ways to fix them.

Design for the Client (You!)

Many of the designers struggled to create a concept that worked for both them and their client. If you're not sure what works best in your wardrobe, these tips help you choose colors and prints that flatter your unique look.

Work With Chiffon

A few designers used this specialty fabric, but one's hems frayed so badly it nearly ruined the entire look. Make sure your own design is up to snuff with these tricks for handling the sheer material .
