The Great British Sewing Bee Series 2

8 x 60' Tuesday 18th February 2014 BBC Two

Claudia Winkleman welcomes ten new home sewers to the Sewing Room, but only one of them will be crowned Britain’s best amateur sewer.


Over 8 weeks they face bespoke challenges set by Savile Row tailor Patrick Grant and sewing teacher May Martin, designed to test every element of their sewing skills. Prepare to be impressed as the sewers produce everything from stretchy leggings, to nylon anoraks, to complex coats taken from vintage patterns. Some even have to fit a real person…

By the end of the series everyone will know their peplums from their plackets and never look at their clothes in the same way again.
