The Loneliest Little Girl on the Runway
It seems to us that Althea has some good design skills but not-so-good technical skills, which is why she winds up in the middle so much. If we had to guess, we think the judges tend to like her work quite a bit but give it a pass because it’s often a little clumsy-looking, execution-wise.
Not that this looks is awful or anything. Just that the sheer top looks a little half-assed, and since the whole look revolves around that top, it needed to be flawless for it to work. Althea said as much to Tim in the workroom. It’s a pretty good design and perfect execution could have bumped it up to the top three.
