Joanna asks Kara what made her choose her fabric (it's light and floral) and wonders if it's maybe a bit too pastel. April thinks it's not appropriate for nighttime and I guess she has a point there. She says it's a summertime picnic sort of dress. Joanna tells Kara that she needs to be careful to not make a bridesmaid dress. Ouch. Kara looks completely nonplussed. Sweet P tells Joanna that, being true to herself, she's making a gown with a lot of colors. she's going to use feathers on the bodice but isn't sure where yet. Jerell says that the silhouette of her dress is the same as she used for the last challenge, where she was in the bottom. That doesn't necessarily spell doom, but it's not like it screams success, either.
Anthony describes his cream-colored dress for Joanna and she wants to know what's going to differentiate it from bridal wear. He says that a bride wouldn't wear the plunging neckline nor the exposed back of his dress. He says that with a lot of confidence. I'm buying it. Joanna says that she's excited to see something really special from him. She wishes everyone luck before she leaves.
Rami, who is improbably beefier since the season he was on the show, says that it's nice to get validation from Joanna. Everyone thinks that he's a solid guy who doesn't need any pats on the back, but he's only a human. A human made of granite -- seriously, he should consider a second career as a trainer on The Biggest Loser -- but a human nonetheless.
Everybody gets back to work. Sweet P seems really nervous, as well she should be. What do you think the problem with Sweet P is? Do you think she's just not made for this sort of competitive environment? I really don't believe that she's untalented and even when the designers are doing that thing where they talk smack about the other people in the room, they never really bag on Sweet P all that much, but, geez, she always seems in danger. I can't really remember her ever not being in the bottom. I'm sure there was some sort of group challenge where she got to be a part of a winning group, but she is just not a winner. It looks like Kara isn't doing so well either. That said, Kara is still the only designer in the history of this show whose clothes I've seen on an actual person. She made these really lovely wrap dresses that were super flattering and colorful. I'm sorry for her that they didn't sell more. Mondo says that she seems like the worst designer in the room right now. It's just not her "Papoom" moment, Mondo. He says that she spends so much time doubting herself that she doesn't finish what she needs to work on. Kara says that she feels like she's in a pressure cooker and you see her holding onto her dress form like she's afraid she's going to slip off the face of the planet.
