This is the drape pattern featured in the Great British Sewing Bee final. This is a great book just like the first Drape Drape book. One tip to make your life easier is an Overlocker or Serger. Next is buy lots of jersey fabric and then go play. Some of the projects look difficult but as long as you know its just fabric origami you should be ok.
Have fun

great book but even XL is really small! It took us a bit to figure it out but in the end the pattern (#4) was simple to pin together. Sadly even XL is too small for me (L/XL would be sold as M/L here probably)

This book is great, lovely designs including the single piece pattern that was used in the last episode of the Great British Sewing Bee 2015 but ... and it is a very big but and you should beware. The pattern sizes , even the extra large , are tiny and will not fit an average shapely person. There are no indications of how to increase the pattern size which is really disappointing and the pieces are complex so it is a difficult to work out how to enlarge them. I understand that some other Japanese patterns when published in English have included other , more European, sizes. But sadly not this one.

This is a great book, it takes a little bit of time to wrap your head around the instructions as the photos inside are black and white but absolutely doable with decent drawn plans. Most of the patterns use jersey material so you may need to watch a few online videos / save small amount of additional material to practice on if you are not used to working with stretch materials. Also the book techniques are assuming you are using an overlocker, this would help considerably but is not essential. I don't have one, am not an amazing seamstress but still managed to create wearable clothes.

Please note the sizing in this book, L-XL (the largest size) is still only a UK 10-12. Also make sure you've lots of paper to trace designs onto as included patterns are all printed on top of one another and need tracing off.

These are the first jersey items I've sewn and whilst hemming took a bit of practise I made my first item in a day. If you like the look of the clothes just get hold of some jersey, stretch needles and have a go, its easier than you might imagine. Once you get the picture its relatively easy to pattern hack some of these designs if you want to change necklines etc. Be bold!

I had no idea when I ordered this book that it comes complete with the styles in real sizes!
It saves lots of time and it is much easier than having to make patterns for what you like.
Really happy with it, instructions are there to sew the pieces as well :0)
You can't ask for anything more...

Buyer beware! Bought this after seeing the GB Sewing Bee, and it's pattern number 4 from this book. Lovely patterns BUT the sizing is teeny tiny. The XL is for a 29 inch waist, which on e.g. Burda patterns would be a Small to Medium size, so if you needed to tweak sizing to suit, you can do so easily as the patterns are graded. So if you're anything larger than a UK shop size 10/12 this book is not for you (unless you have a genius ability to upsize patterns!) As my size is just on the cusp for this book, I'll be sewing in the seam allowance and using very stretchy jersey with lycra!

Bought this book after being recommended by a friend and because it has the top from Sewing Bee. I haven't been disappointed it is everything I expected it to be. Looking forward to trying some of the projects, not a book for a beginner but a fascinating challenge for an experienced stitcher. It is also useful to have some experience of pattern drafting and draping as the sizes are quite small. There are plenty of ideas for sculpting with fabric. Quick delivery, good packaging.

I've made 2 patterns from this book so far. I absolutely love the designs. The process of tracing the pattern is a very long one. It takes more time to trace than to sew the garments.

I made Pattern No.2 the one-piece drape top and after making one, I immediately had to make another. Once you've gone through the process of tracing the pattern (which takes all day), the sewing bit is quick and easy so you might as well make more if you like it.

This book is not for the beginner sewer. Pattern No. 8 the two piece gather drape blouse is a step up in pattern origami from Pattern No.2. It takes a while to get your head round but again, after making one, I made another and it's a lot easier second time round.

I thoroughly recommend this book (a) if you like the designs (b) your are competent sewer.

Unfortunately though if you are a size 14+ the patterns in the book may be too small for you.
