The Final

Another season of The Great British Sewing Bee came to a close last Thursday and the knives (and scissors and pins) were out. This year’s contestants were, I think, the most competitive bunch so far and the final was as tense as I’ve seen it. Three tasks, three finalists and one winner to crown…or give a golden dress form to.

Everyone seemed to pull everything they had out of the bag, including fairy lights and a pair of “skanklets”… no garment should ever have the work “skank” in it Neil, sorry old love. The final “avant garde”garments were, erm, interesting and certainly not what I was expecting… This season of the sewing bee has been unusual in that the contestants have been expected to draft a lot more of their own patterns and it’s certainly moved quite a way from the original show.

Over the last six weeks we have seen some truly exceptional sewing, records have been beaten (one contestant winning all three challenges) and some really amazing garments have been produced.

The winner, Matt, looked completely gob-smacked by the judges decision!
