'If the show left you itching to rustle up a button-back blouse, this companion book guides you through 30 dressmaking projects with tips on hand-sewing skills, machine technique and following patterns. The book is structured around fabric choice, with each chapter dedicated to a specific material. Novices are advised to try camisole tops and cargo shorts in "beginner-friendly cotton", while more accomplished tailors are ushered towards tweed, lace and a scarily complex "corset gown".' --Radio Times, 17 February 2015
'[...] this is definitely the best book to have come out of The Great British Sewing Bee. It has loads of patterns that I actually want to make...such fun!' --Did You Make That? Blog, 2 March 2015

Not only does it come with full sized patterns, but the information, hints and tips are just fabulous. It's like having your very own sewing tutor available.
With the help of this book there is no reason why anyone cannot make, fit and alter a wearable item...and not only that the price is amazing. I have seen this book priced much much higher elsewhere.
Lots of patterns that have to be traced
