Project Runway All Stars Season 6 Episode 7 Recap: A Kick in the Astros
After a week hiatus, we’re back with Project Runway All-Stars! I’m not sure why they took a week off, but they sure turned up the volume this week with the avant garde challenge.
The designers were taken to a planetarium and viewed a film about the universe and all its glory. They were to take inspiration from that to create an avant garde look with $350 and two days. Now was the time to go big.
Joshua started out with a strong idea and an innovative technique. He used Pluto for his inspiration, choosing a color palette quite literally, and decided to make a cape/overlay/vest out of…hot glue. Seriously. Continue reading

Happy Valentines, Galentines, chocolates and wine/fancy fabric day, friends! We’re taking today to celebrate one of our favorite kinds of love: self-love.

Join the conversation! Let us know in the comments if sewing has positively impacted your relationship with yourself and your body.

Check out last week’s post for more on the inspiration behind this design. And join us next week for a bound buttonhole tutorial, plus some special topics along the way. And don’t forget: there’s still time to join! Grab the pattern here and get started with us!
For Luzerne, we recommend light- to mediumweight twill or gabardine. The fabric must have enough body: avoid wools and rayon blends, or you’ll lose the structure of the jacket. At the same time, the fabric has to have some flexibility to ensure comfort. Stay away from anything too stiff and rigid. Finally, pick something with 100% cotton rather than an elastane blend, which would disrupt the fit and make you have to go down at least half a size. And if you’d like, you could also go for a waxed twill Continue reading
