- Product Details
The third instalment in the bestselling BBC2 TV tie-in, The Great British Sewing Bee: Fashion with Fabric highlights the joys of textiles and celebrates their variety in the 18 core projects.
For burgeoning dressmakers the almost endless array of fabrics is what both entices the would-be fashion designer and maker to dress handmade, but it is also what confuses and potentially intimidates the first time sewist when stepping into the haberdashery. Each chapter in this book focuses on a type of fabric and demystifies its properties, suitability and uses as well as providing all the instructions and pattern pieces needed to make a collection of universally appealing garments from that fabric type. Many of the garments contained in the book appear in the show, either as technical challenges designed and set for the contestants by the author Claire-Louise Hardie or as projects chosen and made by the contestants. The chapter on cotton explains the properties of this common fabric and gives a variety of designs including a classic sleeveless shell top, capri trousers, summer dress and beach shorts. This is followed by chapters on wool and natural fibres, knits and stretch fabrics and the luxury fabrics, including lace and sheers. As well as the core chapters and garment instructions, this book also includes all the information you need to get started with your sewing machine and understand both your equipment and the pattern pieces. Claire-Louise’s ultimate guide to fitting your own clothes will ensure a perfect fit and stunning results.
