‘We see the sewing trend continuing to grow in popularity and shows like the Great British Sewing Bee helps create further demand.” Says Marketing Manager Lisa Washington at online haberdashery store White Tree Fabrics. “What’s great about the show is that it introduces techniques, fabrics and patterns that many amateur seamstresses may never have been exposed to and it can create a real surge in interest, say for example in the creation of bras. Rumana used one of our very pretty and delicate floral lace fabric over a plain grey crepe fabric to stunning effect. The invention and upcycling tests provide such inspiration to home sewers to have a go at recreating old garments into something exciting and contemporary. It’s our busiest time of the year .”
