Amateur sewers test their sewing and dressmaking skills. The contestants are tested on their ability to match and combine patterned fabric, with a challenging pleated skirt.
Claudia Winkleman welcomes the nine home sewers back to the sewing room to face three more challenges. This episode tests their ability to match and combine patterned fabric. First the judges, Savile Row's Patrick Grant and sewing expert May Martin, surprise the sewers with a pattern for a pleated skirt. The catch is that they must match the pattern of the fabric across those pleats without changing the size of the skirt, which catches a few of the sewers out.
They must show their ingenuity by combining two patterned men's shirts into one garment - the results range from a little sailor dress to a boob tube.
Finally, they make made-to-measure men's patterned pyjamas which must both match across the seams and fit their male model perfectly.
