I watched the Sewing Bee on BBC 1 with great interest. I did not watch the first series but so many of my students have been talking about it, and indeed was contacted by the producers of the programme on both series to ask my students if they would like to apply to go on the shop. I thought I should watch to see what was catching everyone’s interest. I thought it was fascinating. I loved the way the contestants were asked to use the three main natural fibres, cotton, wool and silk. What did you think of the cotton top? They all turned out so different, simply by using a variety of fabrics. I think the tops will be so quick and easy to make a range for summer. This is your own oppportunity to learn how to make the tops. I have created a similar pattern for you to use. Come along to the workshop and you will be learn all the processes and make a top to take home with you. With your new found skills you willl be able to make many more for yourself and even your friends, simply by changing the fabric.
Come along to this workshop and you will make a sleeveless top just like the one you saw on the first episode of the sewing bee.

- How to follow a pattern to cut out a sleeveless top
- How to sew a facing for a sleeveless top
