The Great British Sewing Bee 3: Fashion with Fabric

Fashion with Fabric

Tying in with BBC2's The Great British Sewing Bee , this book has 30 projects directly from the TV show, including the incredibly popular 'Walkway Dress'! Also included are 5 actual-size pattern sheets with size options: womenswear sizes 8-20 and menswear sizes S to XL.

The third instalment in the bestselling BBC2 TV tie-in, The Great British Sewing Bee: Fashion with Fabric highlights the joys of textiles and celebrates their variety in the 18 core projects. For burgeoning dressmakers the vast array of fabrics is what both entices the would-be sewer to dress handmade, but it is also what intimidates the novice when stepping into the haberdashery. Each chapter focuses on a type of fabric and demystifies its properties, suitability and uses as well as providing all the instructions and pattern pieces needed to make a collection of universally appealing garments from that fabric type.

Many of the 30 garments in the book appeared on screen, either as technical challenges faced by the contestants and designed by Claire-Louise Hardie or as projects devised and made by the contestants. The chapter on Cottons explains the properties of this common fabric and gives a variety of designs including a sleeveless shell top, capri trousers, summer dress and beach shorts. This is followed by chapters on wool and natural fibres, knits and stretch fabrics and then luxury fabrics, including lace and sheers.

This book includes all the information you need to get started with your sewing machine and understand both your equipment and the pattern pieces. Claire-Louise's ultimate guide to fitting your own clothes and expert sewing tips from judges May Martin and Patrick Grant ensure a perfect fit and stunning results.

Claire-Louise Hardie is the Sewing Producer for the BBC2 series The Great British Sewing Bee. An experienced theatrical costumier, Claire-Louise has worked in all aspects of costume for film and tv. The Thrifty Stitcher, a small sewing school in Stoke Newington, London, was founded and is run by Claire-Louise, where she offers friendly sewing classes for aspiring DIY seamstresses and crafters.
