Great British Sewing Bee is Back & Giveaway!
Stitching Friends, the wait is finally over!
Tonight, at 9pm on BBC2 The Great British Sewing Bee is back! I can’t wait to meet all the new faces, check out their unique style and, most importantly, see what they are stitching!!
The previous seasons of the GBSB have been phenomenal – not only in seeing different stitchers react to a brief, add their own flair but also for seeing a wide range techniques and skills put into use.
Watching the GBSB is a fantastic way to pick up a few fancy techniques along the way, but sometimes it hard to remember all the wonderful tips, hints and hacks that are explored through out the shows.
Well, friends, this needn’t be a problem! The Great British Sewing Bee: From Stitch To Style by Wendy Gardiner (£20, Quadrille) is out now!
Very much like the show this book is sure to be a hit with stitchers – experienced and newbies alike! The book is packed with lots of technical information on everything from basic stitching, and in introduction onto garment making, through to developing your own unique style by learning how to gather inspiration, work with fabrics and silhouettes and experiment with more unusual materials and more complex techniques.
Not only that, the books comes with a collection of garment patterns in a full-sized pattern pack -allowing you to try your hand at a Sequin Evening Dress, Man’s Pin Tuck Shirt, Camisole & Short Set, Soft Cup Bra and Child’s Cape! Along side the vary wearable designs are full instructions and plenty of tips and handy hints to keep you on the right tracks – what more could you want?!
What’s more, many of the garments featured in the pattern pack are those that appear in the challenges on the show – so, if you really fancy testing your stitching prowess you can stitch along with contestants and see how fair!
This is books is not only a fantastic accompaniment to the show, but it is also a wealth of information and brilliant, fashion-led garment patterns that will really help to take your stitching to the next level!
Aside from a glass of gin & tonic, this might just be the perfect companion for this seasons shows!
