Product description

The Great British Sewing Book will do for sewing what The Great British Bake Off has done for baking. Brought to you by the same production company, the TV series will be looking for the nation's best amateur sewer. The Great British Sewing Book will provide amateur sewers everywhere with all the technical knowhow and inspiring projects they need to produce a core collection of 25 fabulous garments and homewares. From a child's sundress and a swinging circular skirt to unisex pyjama trousers, a tea dress and a waistcoat, the garments offer something for both sexes and all ages. The homewares and accessories include aprons, bags, cushions and window dressings. In addition to this core collection, 4 winning designs from the series are also included: a simple daytime dress, a child's party dress, a jacket and an evening dress - all with complete instructions and full-size patterns. Capturing the creative energy of the series, the book will also celebrate the rich heritage of sewing and give timely advice on recycling and customising existing pieces. Lavishly illustrated throughout, the photography reflects the atmosphere of the series, shows all the finished garments and includes full step-by-step shots to accompany the instructions.
