The Great British Sewing Bee

Heather doing a hidden zip
 While I have been waiting for this years's Great British bake Off , I have had to content myself with it's less well known sister The Great British Sewing Bee , which finished this evening on BBC2
Would freehand champion Chinelo beat the off the wall sewing champ Tamara? Or would horsey metaphors lover Heather gallop up on the rails ? All was to play for in this dress making tv competition' where a selection of talented British needle workers knocked up a succession of hemmed items with beautiful seams.
In the end it was posh totty Heather that won...... And fair do's her final frock was pretty impressive.....then again what the hell to I know about fashion?
I still wear wellies to the cinema

Sigh
I really only watch the show for judge Patrick Grant........his beard is worth an hour in front of the television anytime...........

  2. The truth comes out!!
    Wish I could get this series here....I appreciate good sewing skills, having watched and learned a bit from my mom and sister.
    I like his hair too, John. Oh I wish I had hair like that.....

  7. I will whip out the sewing machine and make something if Patrick Grant can judge it.
    I don't know who he is but who cares. Please tell me he has a fabulous voice.

    cheers, parsnip

  9. Heather's final dress was pretty impressive (loved the hat and whip!). I'm just astounded that my husband loves to watch this too, and I'm pretty sure it's got nothing to do with Mr Grant.

  11. I don't know much about fashion either. I wear walking boots all the time unless we're going 'into town' (the local expression for going into the nearest city). Then I wear a pair of leather ankle boots I've had for years and also the one and only pair of decent trousers I own. Everything else is usually covered in mud, flour or dog drool!

  12. I've never watched the show, sewing doesn't do it for me, since the advent of that sticky web stuff that irons on and keep up hems I've been free from the dreaded sewing machine ... in fact I flogged it last year at the car boot sale.

    And what is it with men with beards admiring men with beards ... are you all in some sort of secret club. Lovely Hubby lusts after those ridiculous beards with a bead dangling from a thin bit ... I've warned him if he tries to grow one I'll wait until it's quite impressive and then chop it off one night when he's asleep

  13. Yes - that dress was pretty impressive, with Chinelo's a close second. I think Chinelo might have won had she not made such a pig's ear of the silk tie. But Heather's dress was certainly couture.
    As for Patrick - everybody loves him don;t they - and his clothes are absolutely exquisite - he definitely never looks as though he has slept in them - and I would think the word wellies is a foreign language to him.

  15. I have loved watching this series, I was a big fan of Lynda but Heathers dress was very good and she deserved to win.

  16. Patrick Grant is just delicious. So glad Heather won. Even I would have worn that frock - it was lovely. I would have spit feathers if Tamara had won. She was too far up her own flower adorned arse for my liking

  17. That beard is mesmerising.............but the standard of sewing just makes me feel inadequate!! xxx

  18. Yes, I thought that dress was impressive...but, I still wanted Chinelo to win; she had so much more creative flair overall. As for Patrick? Yep, I'd be content for him to release the tension on my bobbins any day!
