Episode 4

Amateur sewers test their sewing and dressmaking skills. The contestants must make clothes on a miniature scale, from children's clothes through to fancy dress outfits.

Claudia Winkleman welcomes the seven home sewers as they return to the sewing room to make clothes on a miniature scale.

They face three challenges to test their ability to make children's clothes, starting with toddler dungarees. For the alteration challenge they are given a sweatshirt, track suit bottoms and, of all things, a pillowcase. From these items they have to rustle up a fancy dress outfit and the sewers produce everything from mini Johnny Depp pirate outfits to dinosaur costumes complete with tail.

Finally, they must create a spectacular made-to-measure prom dress for a teenager. To their complete surprise, the models are people they know from home.
