Project Project Runway #3-Patterning for Piggy

This week for Project Project Runway the challenge was to design a flamboyant, headline making cocktail dress for Ms. Piggy. When I first heard the challenge I kind of chuckled. It was a great twist on the week.

When looking around at photos of Ms. Piggy I noticed a lot of the time she had ruffles or such at the bottom of her dress. I thought it would be fun to do something with that and then walking in JoAnn's I saw this pink feather ruffle and knew that is what I wanted to make. I know it is kind of cliche to use pink with the design but I went with it.

My design is a short ,one sleeved dress with feathers at the bottom. I love the playful hearts and the pink together.

So far I have not been a huge fan of the Neiman Marcus wall for the accessories. Also, I am sure that Ms. Piggy will not be able to wear the shoes I picked for the outfit but a girl has to dream doesn't she?

I wish they had made the winning design for Ms. Piggy and had her model it for us.

Every time I see your dress I like it more. A little flapper and a little flashdance.

I really love this dress! Wish it was in my size! Hmmm does that mean I have the same taste as a pig? I guess so! Absolutely awesome!
