Jane by Design 1.16 "The Backup Dress" Review

If there's one lesson you can take from Jane Quimby and Jane by Design, it's that pursuing your dreams doesn't have an age limit. Jane became the woman that she always wanted to be, a stylish fashionista with a job at a leading fashion house, before she even had her high school diploma and still keeps pushing for more. It may be difficult to balance both very different halves of herself, one a normal high school student and the other one degree removed from fashion royalty, but Jane's passion for the art form and enthusiasm for the job itself have managed to keep her invested long after others would have dropped out. Or dropped dead from exhaustion.

On the latest episode of Jane by Design, titled "The Backup Dress", other members of the cast got to fulfill their dreams and, like with Jane, it made for some touching moments. For instance, Kate finally decided that the time for world traveling and dabbling in every hobby imaginable was over, accepting Dakota's proposal and heading off to Colorado to grow up once and for all. The final scene between Jane and her mother was the type of genuine, warm material that Jane by Design excels in executing; you had to feel for Jane losing Kate once again, but the two are on such better terms than they were before that their goodbye didn't feel like an ending. It was the final words of one chapter in their complicated history together, the end of Jane having to always be the bigger person and the beginning of an era of equality, respect, and a stronger bond between mother and daughter. In the back-half of the season, the show has made a real effort for the characters to all grow in their own ways and Kate's journey has been open and honest without veering toward maudlin or preachy, so it was a little sad to see her go.
