How does The Great British Sewing Bee work?

The show sees twelve contestants competing across 10 weeks of sewing challenges.

Scrutinising every stitch are Saville Row’s Patrick Grant and Central Saint Martins's Esme Young.

They'll be testing the sewers across a huge range of garments from rugby shirts to children’s dungarees, flamenco skirts to a boned basque, via food fancy dress.

There's no cash prize for the winner, with the top sewer walking away with a special trophy crowning them The Great British Sewing Bee champion.
