Jillian stunned me with her bold decision to barely use any of her client Erika's wardrobe. Frankly, I was prepared for the possibility of a "disqualification" ruling from the judges. Jillian told me that she replicated the red of Erika's shirt in the fabric that she bought (and I'm not at all certain how she obtained all of that fabric for a mere $10), and she cut up Erika's pants for strips for piping I have to say that her design was strong: a red dress with a halter cum racer back. And her use of the piping to create the illusion of a longer and leaner silhouette was outstanding. I'm merely happy that the judges subscribed to the package, whereas I would have balked.
