Yay!! One of my favourite TV shows is back! Did you watch it?
I loved the dresses! Especially the one that got garment of the week! I also loved Lorna’s dress and Deborah’s dress, although there were a few that were nice. It’s inspired me to tackle some trousers! I’ve never made proper trousers, only pyjama bottoms so that would be a new challenge for me! Neela and Neil made the best trousers in my opinion!
The challenge that would scare me the most is the alteration challenge. I seriously wouldn’t have a clue where to start so I’m always impressed by anything they achieve. Loved all the kids clothes and Alex’s tulle skirt.
From watching the trousers challenge, I think my sewing is on a par with some of theirs. My zip wouldn’t be perfect and I’d probably have a gap at the top but I’ve never sewn pieces back to front or inside out. Maybe I’ll apply for series 4! Also, it’s always a pleasure to have the lovely Patrick back in my life!
After I watched it, I raced up to my sewing machine, feeling inspired and started the ruffle for the Charlotte skirt. I soon got to the stage where I needed to hand sew the gather stitches for it and that needs a good bit of time and focus! I didn’t have the patience tonight. I’m hoping to get it finished this weekend. It’s been far too long since I’ve sewn anything.
I’ve also got some fabric to make more PJ bottoms and my Archer shirt pattern has arrived 🙂
Did you watch sewing bee? What garment was your favourite?
