Project Runway Season 10!

Whoo Hoo!  The new season of Project Runway started tonight, well, actually it appears now that it started LAST night.  Luckily my channel surfing paid off.  I had no idea the new season was starting.  My grand daughter Maggie, who turned 13 this month has been watching previous seasons of Project Runway on Netflix and has started to design her own clothing “line.” (all designs copyright 2012 Maggie McGuire!)  I can tell you  I was really blown away when her mom showed the sketches to me on her iPhone.  I asked her to send them to me and I popped them into Photoshop for a quick edit and learned how to put 4 images together at the same time.  I am hoping that there is no distortion… is that what constrain proportions is good for? Anybody?  The upper left design IS that long.  Wish I had those long legs!   In any case, I monkeyed with the contrast and brightness to make them a bit bolder. I probably could have done more editing, but, I do have to sleep sometime. I have no idea how I got a dividing line between the bottom two pix. (Help!) Oh well, I am learning and I am not perfect!

I am so proud of Maggie!  Now, I hope that we can translate her designs into patterns.  I have not taken any classes for this kind of challenge.  I have made patterns from dresses I loved, though.  How hard can it be?  We’ll see….
