It was all about surviving in style this week on Bravo's Project Runway. The designers were tasked with making unconventional materials look cooler-than-cool, and as usual they did not disappoint. Take a cue from their outdoor adventures with these projects that are all about nature and, well, going just a little bit wild.
Weave Your Heart Out
When there's rope on hand and fashion in the air, there's truly only one thing to do: weave! We cheered out loud seeing one designer bust out this awesome technique, and can't wait to use it ourselves on a bag, fringed scarf and maybe even some plaid dishtowels.
Reimagine Quilt Materials
A few designers were inspired by sleeping bags for their over-the-top runway looks, and we couldn't help dreaming up other ways to get that same puffed-up vibe. The answer: a quilted jacket. Genius.
Arrange Flowers in a Fresh Way
Petals are a no-brainer when the great outdoors is your source of inspiration. To keep yours from looking like they came from a gaudy souvenir shop, try crafting them out of the most delicate colored paper.
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.
Sew a Comfortable Bra
We learned in this episode that it is possible to make a bra out of tree bark (who knew?), but those who want a little less bite in their undergarments may want to opt for a smoother — and slightly more comfy — finish. Learn which materials work best , along with how to make the fit juuust right.
Custom-Fit Those Clothes
It finally happened: the classic skirt splitting down the middle on one model, while another trips down the runway in her too-long dress. It just goes to show how important tailoring is, so brush up on those skills before risking your own fashion faux pas.
