Made for Me by Kathryn R. Biel

Michele's lack of focus in life hasn't bothered her, until the day she finds herself with mounting credit card debt, unable to afford her rent, and without a job. While her meddling family questions how she can end up in this predicament, at the age of 29, and single to boot, Michele doesn't want to admit the truth. All she wants to do is sew.
Faced with the prospect of moving back into her parents' house, Michele throws a Hail Mary pass and applies for a TV design contest, Made for Me. In order to win the contest, Michele will have to compete with nine other contestants to design the new wardrobe for Duchess Maryn Medrovovich, who's about to marry Prince Stephan of the United Republic of Montabago.
While in the seclusion of the show, Michele starts to realize where her focus in life should be, and what's truly important to her. However, a dashing competitor might just cause her to lose her focus once and for all. Can Michele keep her eye on the prize while being true to herself?

My Thoughts
Such a  fun read! For those of you who love Project Runway, Made for Me would be right up your alley!
Michele has no focus but is an amazing designer and has a talent for sewing. But a good job seemed hard to come by and living with her parents was the end of the road.  She needed to do better and then she saw the ad for a TV design contest.  What did she have to lose?
Not only is she winning challenges but she is also creating friendships and a possible love interest?
The final challenge is designing the wedding attire for the soon to be princess of Montabago and if she wins she would design her wardrobe for a year!  WOW!
Can Michele make it to the end?  Can she be the designer she's always wanted to be and pursue dreams beyond Etsy?
