Britain’s The Great British Sewing Bee spoilers

This week (June 24), is the final. Bringing together a range of advanced sewing skills, from pleating to high-end designing and the delicate handling of luxury fabrics, perfecting celebration wear is a pinnacle for any home sewer.

Judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young start by challenging the sewers to make a little boy’s kilt without a pattern. They must use their mathematical skills to create the right amount of pleats such that their kilt will fit their mannequin perfectly.

Next, it’s the sewers final chance to show off their instinct for design in the transformation challenge, as they attempt to turn party dresses into dramatic and fun outfits fit to wear at a carnival.

Lastly, for the most important made-to-measure challenge of the series, the sewers attempt to construct and fit glamorous cut-out evening gowns for their models, this time a friend or member of their family. Creating a unique, jaw-dropping gown using yards of luxury fabric will take a feat of daring construction and their most precise sewing yet.

Once the final stitch is in place and the catwalk is over, the sewers’ friends and family, along with past competitors, arrive to celebrate. But once the judges have made their decision, there can only be one winner.

Britain’s The Great British Sewing Bee airs at 9PM on Wednesday nights on BBC One.
