The Great British Sewing Bee Live

We are still beaming after an incredibly successful show at The Great British Sewing Bee Live.

Our stand was buzzing and we got the chance to meet so many of our instagram friends and all the incredible seamstresses that have made our garments! We met so many new friends and were delighted that people that haven’t heard of us yet fell in love with our patterns!

Here are some highlights from the show:

Getting the stand ready! We loved that you could come in to our stand and browse our garments on the mannequins. We know how important it is to see how the garment drapes and fits.

Then the show began! Every day there were three catwalk shows which showcased the big brands and the independent sewing brands – it was unbelievable to see our garments strutting down the catwalk. The models really bought them to life and we loved the flurry of people that headed over to our stand straight after to grab their own pattern!





















We loved meeting everyone at the show. We were so proud of our patterns and so delighted to chat to everyone about the garments, fitting guidelines and fabrics!

Here’s me and Samantha from @sewbytheseaside who had previously made our Shift Dress when it launched – read more here

Here’s some more snippets from the amazing four days we had at The Great British Sewing Bee Live.


We can’t thank you enough for your support. We are bowled over at how lovely everyone was!
Guess what? The date for 2018 has been set for the next incredible Great British Sewing Bee Live Show – grab your calendars and block out 8-10 June 2018! We’ll be there with new patterns, kits and more!
