Sewing for others

First things first. Who watched The Great British Sewing Bee? Tuesday, BBC2, (1)

If you missed it watch it on catch up. I loved it. I thought all the contestants did so well with their sewing challenges. Sew a dress to fit another person? In 6 hours? I was impressed! Well done Tilly and the Buttons – I thought you did great.

Talking of fitting a dress to someone else… This is the moment I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for… Sophie’s dress actually fits Sophie. Thank goodness. And thank you to Sophie for being a wonderful model – isn’t she lovely? And I think the dress fits well. Well done us!

    • Thanks Sabs. This is my third Cambie! The fabric prints make them all look so different – looking forward to seeing yours. Sophie’s was for a wedding too in Australia. She said she’s going to send more photos when she has a tan!

  3. I saw you were interested in Tilly’s dress pattern. You can find a very similar one on Burdastyle from 08/2012 pattern number 133. It’s also available for sale online. You can see my version too The dress you made is really cute and well fitted!
