    Spoo, if you need something to reignite criticism and question motivations please take a stroll over to this thread. It's awe-inspiring.

    If I had a good digital camera, I would be more than pleased to show my collection of ill fitting bespoke / mtm / rtw garments. Thanks to dropping over 40LB's in mass, I have $10'sK worth of clothing that is beyond tailorable. When I get a good camera, I will show you how Bespoke can look wrong when the body shape changes :)

    Reason for edit: Cry me a river style useless information ...........

    Re: hip flare...is it possible to take a few snips of cloth out of the hips area? Or, look at the part that is right in front of the vent, is it creased, almost like the jacket was laid on its back and ironed in place? I've seen that before and it makes the hip area jut out of a double vent jacket.

    I would gladly go on, only to lose in the first episode and get that smooch.

    Though Heidi Klum has really poor taste in clothing if she's not being dressed by someone else, so i can't really say if the winner would really have "won". After all, they don't get the KlumKuss.

    The skirt of the jacket is flared and this can be deliberate or an affect of cutting technique to help define the waist. I do a little of this on my own jackets because my waist and chest measure the same. I have 0 drop. I don't care for the look as much as used to so don't cut this way as much. This is a stylistic element and not at all a flaw but is perceived to be extreme by SF standards.
    If the jacket was unbuttoned the reason for the flare would be easier to assess.

    This is the effect of a crooked coat. The collar/shoulder shifts closer to the neck and the skirt of the jacket shoots out. Think of the fronts as a plane. Shift the top towards the neck and the bottom shifts in the opposite direction. Could also be caused by long fronts. Could have occurred from altering/shaping the waist but not the hip area. Would only know if a before and after the alteration view were available. Can be a design element of the pattern to have a flared skirt. I associate this loosely with English styling. Will post this on the other thread too.

    we get a double dose of klum here with germany's next top model, which should actually be called germany's next mediocre skinny skank off the street, but that's another story.

    my advice is: curtail some internets time and learn the language. where is she from?

    i repeat: make an effort to learn the language! it will make live a shitload easier.
