OH MY GOD – inspiration and excitement may have been switched into high gear. I’ve just seen episode 1 of the 2015 Great British Sewing Bee. I’ve never watched the series before and I have to say I am excited!
I’ve decided to join the Bee myself – though obviously in my living room and working around the whole ‘full time employment’ situation I find myself in. So what I want to do is make myself do the challenges. I can’t imagine doing all of them as I find it hard and/or not interesting to make something I won’t wear.
So from this week’s challenges I plan to take up the cotton trousers in 3 hours. I had thought about fitting a printed dress for a friend in 5 1/2 hours but to be fair I often make stuff for my BFF so it doesn’t seem like its really pushning the boat out.. I can’t be bothered with trying to remake a denim shirt – obviously lacking the element of surprise makes it less of challenge but it just doesn’t inspire me.
So now I just need to figure out what the pattern was that was used for the trouser. Any suggestions?
