So, the Great British Sewing Bee is over! I enjoyed every episode right up until the end, the contestants were so watchable and funny too! I will miss my weekly instalments of sewing related television (although I really do question how many people see their own nylon anarack). Heather was indeed a deserving winner and created an amazing couture gown in the finale.
Although I maintain that Chinelo's sewing made my jaw drop on a weekly basis due to her incredible ability to cut and fit gorgeous garments without a pattern.
Here are just a few of my favourite Chinelo creations:
A silk nightie so beautiful I'd wear it was a ball down
I loved this peplum skirt refashion so much it inspired me to create my own!
Men's shirt refashion
Beautiful bow prom dress
Velvet peplum trousers, such a cute idea!
Vintage style dress
Men's suit refashion
Individual strips of organza layered onto the skirt, wow!
And the grand finale...
*Sigh* she is just so amazing, and what inspiring style! I read on http://chinelobally.com that Chinelo is going to start teaching her own courses in her unique style of dressmaking and pattern cutting.
But, as much as I will miss my weekly dose of Chinelo's incredible style and talent, we all know what I'll really be missing the most...
And one more for luck:
Lolz awesome photo, makes me want to buy those shorts (but only if he's in them).
Thanks for reading and happy sewing x x x
