Valerie seems a little unsure of herself and it looks as if Gretchen shares her doubt. She whispers to her that she's thinking of making a skirt and top and jacket, but she's afraid it might be too edgy. She interviews that she wants to get everything drafted so she can start on the details, as there are apparently a lot of those. She wonders aloud if her look is Jackie O enough and Gretchen says that it's about what she would wear now, not what her aesthetic was then. Well, that's obvious, right? Valerie says that she's the Susan Lucci of the show because she has been in the top several times and has yet to win a challenge. Also, because she successfully faced down a bear. She tells Gretchen that she doesn't want her look to get to cray-cray, because Jackie O would not wear Goth. Gretchen agrees that, yes madam, Jackie O would not wear Goth.
Gretchen says to the sewing room that she thinks the easiest way to screw up is to second-guess yourself. Mondo agrees and interviews that, since the group is so small, you make one mistake and you're going home. April says that she's making a top and a pencil skirt.
And, then we get to hear from Ivy. She interviews that a lot of the designers don't know what "sportswear" is -- namely Other Michael and Christopher, who she believes are making cocktail dresses. Cocktails are my favorite sport, so stuff it, Ivy. Valerie talks to some people about what she's doing and Andy interviews that she always needs approval from the other designers. Bitch. Then, we see the pants he's making, which have enormous legs. Valerie says to Gretchen that the pants are odd and she hopes that he keeps going with them. Also, bitch. Andy interviews that a fashion forward person takes risks, like wearing pants that are perhaps more appropriate for clowns.
Tim comes in for consultation. Valerie asks Tim a bunch of questions about what she should do and he finally tells her that it has to be her choice. He is amazed at Mondo's fabric, because he thinks it's totally him. Cute Michael interviews that, if Jackie O went to the desert and dropped acid, you'd have Mondo's fabric. Meanwhile, Tim thinks that Cute Michael's skirt is "Annie Oakley." Cutie reasons that old stuff is recycled in fashion all of the time.
