Think Heidi Would Like It? by HJLyn Think Heidi Would Like It? by HJLyn
Hello, Project Runway!

One of my favorite shows, (yes, I rooted for Christian last season) they have been doing online challenges after each show. This week it's using your Zodiac sign for inspiration. So... I'm an Aries. I think I trashed about ten designs on the bodice alone and I'm still not completely happy with it, I do like it.

What do you guys think?
God, I wish my hands would let me sew still....

The collar would be lined leather, same as the bodice. The Gold color would be actual metal over the base of the collar, the symbol on the bodice and the edge of the arm bracers. Yup, those are leather too.
The dress would be three layers, with the black just a liner to the white instead of a fully separate layer - though I might change that idea. I had fun with the sleeves which connect to the collar in back by a faux gemstone that would resemble a ram's eye.
Her hair and make up I just had fun with. :P

(c)... MINE! ^.^

I like how you've made her ringlet pigtails look kinda like horns.

Oh wow, that would seriously be a gorgeous dress! Darn it, if you actually sew it, I'd buy it. I really like the layers in this dress concept! I'm digging the collar, it's just fantastic. :)

Thank you!
I'm hoping someday to find a seamstress to help me. The detail work and vibrations from sewing machines really aggravate my hands but I'm still pretty decent with my leather work. I would so love to make this someday too.

So, I'm planning to do the faceoff against this one, but I have the same sign as you. So I have to keep going back and forth between your design and my sketch trying to make sure mine isn't super similar to yours. :P

I've had that problem before. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
