Vix Knits… and crochets and sews…

My adventures in the wonderful world of arts and crafts

The Great British Sewing Bee

on April 2, 2013

Did anyone else see this awesome new show?! The first episode just finished and I love love loved it
It’s on BBC2 at 8pm on Tuesdays (I thought it was on every day this week so I’m actually really gutted now)
As the name suggests, it follows a similar pattern to the Bake Off (sorry, pun not intended!) with three tasks completed over a couple of days
This week they had to: make an A-line skirt from a pattern; alter a shop bought t-shirt; and make a day dress. And all tasks are time limited, can you imagine making a skirt from scratch in less than an afternoon
It’s almost inspiring me to learn to sew properly
And even better than all that? I completed a whole pattern repeat on the first sleeve of the cricket jumper
