From Stitch to Style
The companion book to the fourth series of this flagship BBC2 show, The Great British Sewing Bee: From Stitch to Style, accompanies sewers at all levels on their creative journey.
Starting with the Foundation chapter, sewers can choose from a collection of garments that will ease them into the world of sewing. Moving on to the Inspiration chapter, sewers are encouraged to look around them and seek inspiration from alternative sources beyond the high street and look at ways of incorporating that inspiration in their fabrics choices and garment silhouettes. Finally, the Experimentation chapter brings everything previously learnt together and challenges the sewer to explore working with different fabrics, non-conventional sewing methods and tricky techniques.
