Looks like NBC will have a new reality competition show starting on March 13. Unknown designers will launch new designs and then you can buy the patterns via McCall's. Sounds fun!

Fashion Star I think it is called. I understood you could buy the actual clothing shown in the stores the next day.
In any case. we have made it to Prime Time and a major channel. How fabulous is that. We are in the big leagues now.

Wouldn't it be awesome if sewing could kick in as the "in" thing to do!!! I already know it is...but when i say "I sew as a hobby" people look at me like I am weird.

Then don't tell people your hobby is sewing. Just say you're an amateur fashion designer with your very own line of clothes.

The discussion on this awful show is on another post started by tgm. I bumped it up. This topic morphed into what to call ourselves since sewing seems to be out of fashion amongst a lot of circles. Most everyone hated the show! Check that thread out.

I completely loved the show.... I can't wait for the next episode.

My favorite look of the night - Nzimiro's Mark Jacket.

I liked it also. It is not a sewing show, but a runway show. I liked getting a diffent viewpoint from the buyers.
