I think it was time for Sue to go. It is inexcusable to not have finished the dress. As far as being able to sew. I think she just was unfamiliar with the sewing machines and didn't have time to actually learn how to thread/make a bobbin/etc. within the show time frame. I learned to sew long before there were sergers. I can sew well on my standard Singer, with lots of different stitches. However, I wouldn't have a clue how to use a serger. Of course, I wouldn't attempt to get on a show like PR either. I loved Braden's gown. But I loved Jeremy's dress too. Jeremy's dress (as I already mentioned) reminded me of a dress Zac Posen did this Spring. The peplum was set similarly. I did not get the love for Karen's dress, I thought it was awful. I didn't like Dom's or Helen's dresses either. Dom's looked like it had promise, but she should have taken some of the spires off - too much. Helen's didn't fall right and where was the "no woman wants their hips to look bigger" comment? I agree about Sandro. He really did seem sorry.
