Hear the challenge; make a sketch.
Take a trip to Mood.
In the workroom, get a taste
Of someone’s attitude.
Drape your garment; start to stitch.
Wait for Tim’s advice.
Get those seams and zippers straight;
Sometimes sew them twice.
Fit your models; then consult
For make-up and for hair.
Race against the clock as you
So desperately prepare.
Then the runway show begins,
As models preen and strut.
Feel so proud, ‘til Nina’s frown
Just kicks you in the gut.
Zac and Heidi and a guest
Dole negatives or praise.
Someone hears “Auf Wiedersehen,”
That awful farewell phrase.
Take a breath, you’ve made it through,
But there’s no time for crowing;
Win or lose, you’re on TV –
Thank goodness, you learned sewing!
