    Just looked at all the photos from this week's episode. How smart of the designers. If you can't sew well enough to put in a well-done zipper, then use an industrial zipper, sew it in however you want, and call it "design."

    Those "designs" would have gotten a D- from my 8th grade home ec teacher.

    There is a way to do exposed zippers to make them look, dare I say cool? These designers did not IMHO.

    I hated the winning dress. From the ridiculous neckline to the ugly zipper to the fact that it looks wrinkled, I can't find any redeeming fearture to it except maybe the color.

    I liked the zipper, but hated the neckline. I don't know ANYONE who could wear that to work....unless they work in the fashion industry. Even in the art world, you have to dress more conservatively.

    I loved Christopher's skirt!

    I'm surprised that none of the judges brought up the neckline too. it's just way too high for real life. I wonder if they really did and it was just edited out though.

    You definitely couldn't do anything in that neckline that involved looking down at all. You'd have to fold that part of the dress down in some way for it to be comfortable unless you have a job that requires you to look straight ahead, chin up all day. Another example of the disconnect with the judges and the real world.

    I hear you. There's no way that dress would be appropriate for the workplace....unless you're a hostess at a fairly upscale restaurant.

    I thought the whole thing was a hot mess! It looked like it was thrown together by a 12 year old who was just learning how to sew.

    I'll never understand the judges. Never.

    I was completely underwhelmed by these designs. I hate, hate, HATE team challenges.

    As an executive female, half my lunch would be caught in that crumb catcher neckline.
