With three hours remaining, they all get back to work. Josh says that, with so few designers remaining, the competition and the pressure is getting more intense. Josh says that he has been in the bottom but he has never been eliminated, so..."get used to it." I guess that's really the only thing that you can say, right?
Joshua is in the kitchen area or whatever place it is where these guys do their dyeing when Anthony Ryan walks in. "Hello Dye Master," Joshua says and shows him how different his fabric looks now that it is dyed. Anthony Ryan interviews that he dyed a lot on his season and it's only natural for Joshua to ask him questions about the process. Josh asks him what he should do to deepen the green, but Anthony Ryan tells him that he may lose the black in the print if he goes any deeper. Anthony Ryan continues in his interview, saying that he is only giving his opinion to Joshua and he can take it or leave it. Jesus, get over yourself. He's obviously feeling that he may look like a hypocrite since he kept kvetching about Casanova and Ivy helping each other. You said it, get over it! Now you're helping someone that you want to help and it's not the end of the world. Just keep your mouth shut next time you see two designers being collegial. Josh goes ahead and tries to deepen the color, which means there is drying time involved as well.
The ladies come in for their fitting. As Jessica is getting fitted, she tells Uli that, when she told her mother that she was going to be on the show, her mother said, "I hope you get Uli. She makes the most beautiful dresses." That's so nice! Uli interviews that she wants to give Jessica a dress that she can love and wear many times. Emilio is having problems pinning his bodice to match Lisa's small frame. He decides that he is going to have to make drastic changes. It sounds like he's going to create an entirely new bodice. He explains to us that he is trying to do something with a high level of difficulty in a very short amount of time. I mean, I don't even understand what's happening. From what I can see, he has a very small amount left of the fabric that goes beneath the pretty yellow fabric. That stuff underneath is used to give structure to the yellow. So he has to fuse the two and I don't know what that entails.
Anthony Ryan says that this first fitting is crucial. Seeing something on a mannequin is one thing, but it's completely different once it is on an actual body. Once Donna is wearing the dress, he will be able to find out what changes are necessary to fit her specifically. She impresses upon Anthony Ryan that she doesn't want to accentuate her bust- she wants to hide it. Sounds like she has issues? Anthony Ryan has snapped into problem-solving mode because Donna is indeed fuller in the bust area than the mannequin. She suggests that she's going to need a strapless bra, to which I'm like...duh? Emilio says that he doesn't like Anthony Ryan's dress. He says that Donna is a beautiful and confident woman and the dress does nothing for her. To be fair, Donna is not that confident. One of the major requirements she had for the design was that it hide her. She may be solid in what she wants but that doesn't mean it's confident. Anthony Ryan shows Donna several strap options (because support is necessary) and lets her pick out her favorite.
