Oh, Tessa.  Not listening to her client. Grrrrr.

I’m worried they are teasing us.  My hopes are high that Ms “I haven’t been designing in black” may leave us.

C’mon Sebastian.  You gotta pull something out here.

Hester's going to have to watch herself because her client is ARMED!

Who gives a fuck what YOUR aesthetic is, Jamal.  You're there to make your client happy.

I love Bishme so much.  He's so cute with that math problem. 

I HATE the colour Sebatian picked.  It's not pink, it's 'flesh'.

They nit pick Bishme to death and I don't get the love for Garo or Hester

Has Hester EVER been assigned a “curvy” model?

But let's talk about the inequity of the assignments of the "clients." You get a skinny pageant queen! You get a fat woman! I'm not even trying to couch it in politically correct terms because come on.

Plus they said to make a dream dress, but there was no direction as to where their "girls" were going. So we got prom (?), engagement party, did any other client say where in her fantasy she was going?

NO COINCIDENCE that all of the top looks were on the thin clients.

Wait, Garo's client was not thin. Thanks for the correction @nb360!

Thank goodness! When they showed so many Sebastian talking heads and backstory I said he’s either going to win, or his going home.

You could see Tessa cringe when the designers learned it was a “real woman” challenge. How much in self denial is Tessa in if she can’t even admit that she’s used the color black in nearly every other challenge?  Like, really?

Even Brandon seemed to not disguise his frustration with her.

And yet they still won't get rid of her. That doesn't mean Jamal wins. There are better designers, but it does eliminate and out and out liar.

I think Garo’s client is what we have been calling “curvy.” The thing is that she LOOKED confident and her size didn’t register as much as with the women who did not look confident.

You're right, I stand corrected!

I was kind of hoping to flashback to Christian's prom challenge when he was a designer... He should have been sent home even though he was/is so talented. Didn't love Sebastian's color, but the dress was lovely. The preview scared me though.

Finally Sebastian wins! Cute dress. Also loved Garo’s dress and how his model loved it too. 

I liked Jamall but it was time for him to go. His poor model looked so uncomfortable. If his design had not been so awful I think Tessa would have been out. Has she ever finish a hem? And once again Hester squeaks by, at least she listened to her client which Tessa did not.

LOL.  I liked the tunic but would have preferred it with less colors.

I haven't been a huge Garo fan and this dress AGAIN had the weird shoulders but agree that the way he treated his client and embraced this challenge earned him huge points from me.  The removable cape was cool too.

I don't like either Tessa or Hester but at least Hester acknowledged that she screwed up and was out of her comfort zone here.

Sebastian has been my favorite all season, but  I didn't really care for any of the designs tonight. I suppose that his was the best, but....it just didn't seem like his best work.

 The purple wasn't horrible, but the rest of them were terrible imo. I don't get why it was do difficult. Lol

My mother and grandmother used to make my sisters and me crocheted vests like that back in the early 70's.  I forget what the pattern is called, but it's a series of crocheted squares that are sewn together.

They're granny squares.  I love 70s crochet.

Sebastian's dress was very well made but his client looked like she was going to be meeting Troy Donohue at the sock hop.

I like how the producers tried to make it up to Jamal’s model — they showed her in the make up commercials that air between the show, as if they were trying to feature her. That was also the clue that Jamal had lost.

Me too. But how ironic that it's on a woman in her 30's who dresses like a 10 year old.

Thank you, both!!  I thought it had something to do with grandmothers or grandmas...we had all kinds of things from that pattern - vests, hats, purses, toaster cover, afghans (even the dreaded toilet paper covers, LOL!!)  They went crazy with it!!  🙂

I, too, was thinking of Christians season when he made that frumpy prom dress for his high schooler.
