Oh my God, Kara is still trying to retrieve her Barbie hat. She gets it, finally, but her sketching time is seriously shortened by her hat-retrieving efforts.
Tim takes them to the fabric store. They each have $150 for supplies. Nick grabs a really bright pattern, or "psychedelic," as he sees it. Tim asks Andrae if he feels "disabled" by the challenge, because Andrae seems like he's in a daze. He says in an interview, "Not only do I have to pull this thing together in forty-five minutes, I also have to assess what's there." I don't understand what he's saying. Assess what's in the fabric store? I'll give you a hint: fabric store. Think hard. You'll get it. Kara is the last one to finish, and Tim's getting a little impatient.
At the workroom, they get started. Lots of cutting. Nick interviews that his My Scene Barbie muse gives him a "Telemundo/Copa Cabana" vibe. He explains his design and seems really confident with it.
Chloe says that she is going to make her design pink, because every girl likes pink. Broad generalization, but sure, why not.
Diana interviews that her design will sport a large hood that can be worn down as a collar. The fabric is a heavy red, with holes outlined in black all over it. It's really cool. Emmett remarks to Diana that he thinks it is beautiful fabric. He says, "You're doing Barbie couture, for sure."
Santino's design will be a mixture of knit and woven fabrics, which provide the twin qualities of "fit and flare." He also notes that he wants to be the best. If he is anything less, he feels like he has failed. That may be a bit of an explanation for why he wasn't generous or congratulatory to Chloe when she won the last challenge. His victory in the semifinals may have set him up for a lot of disappointment. I wonder if he would have been so upset had he not won that challenge.
