The Birds and the Bees

Did you watch the first episode of The Great British Sewing Bee last night? I just caught up with it on iplayer and I can’t wait til next week. It follows the rating winning format of The Great British Bake Off where you have contestants pitting their sewing skills against each other in a variety of tasks. It’s a bit like Project Catwalk/ Runway but without the glam factor or the divatude. Taking part is fellow blogger Tilly whose blog I discovered about a month ago and I’ve been using it as a resource to help teach my students to sew, as her detailed step by step photos are fantastic.

Tilly struggled a bit with some of the tasks but I hope she goes far in the competition. Shes only been sewing for two years and I am definitely impressed with her skills. Go Tilly!

  1. OK, I love love love gingham dresses. You are really inspiring me to dust off my sewing skills right now. In my latest post, I mentioned that you had inspired me to start making my own peplum belt. Take a look when you get a chance!
