The Great British Sewing Bee.
I’ve seen the first episode…..
My money is on the sweet little blonde girl…
yellow trousers, first left in pic.
I want to do it too…v envious of those lucky folks.
I shouted at the tv things like…. “you need to trim it closer” and “measure the bust first”
You see I am really a sewer…. it was my first love,
Occasionally I have posted about my makes
but I sidelined them for crochet and chose to blog about that instead.
Now I have decided to have a go at the challenges from the ‘sewing Bee’ albeit from the comfort of my own sewing room without any pressure.
Have you seen my sewing room?
I must get a proper ‘tour’ sorted and show you around one day.
Here is a glimpse of a very special filing cabinet..
My ‘t.o.h.’ restored and professionally spray painted it for me, he has special spray guns and everything!!
Can you imagine what it contains?
Mostly patterns, patterns and patterns mostly vintage too aren’t they lovely?
First up an “A” line skirt
Have been freshly inspired by the anthropologie one above can you believe it cost £148.00 !!!
I will time myself to 3 hours just like the show….
