Packed full of information and inspiration, this companion book to the sixth series of the phenomenally popular BBC show, The Great British Sewing Bee, will ease you into the world of sustainable fashion and get you sewing, with 27 exciting projects to choose from.

The BBC primetime series, The Great British Sewing Bee, is back.

The companion book to the sixth series of this flagship BBC show, The Great British Sewing Bee: Sustainable Style accompanies sewers at all levels on their creative journey to reduce, reuse and recycle - ultimately creating their own considered closet.

Starting with the essentials, sewers will learn how to maintain and care for their sewing machine, find out the secrets to using an overlocker (and what to do if you don't have one) and the key to pattern matching. With a guide that demystifies the fitting process, and with expert sewing tips on making alterations, you'll be able to choose from 27 projects, for both women and men, that will ease you into the world of sustainable sewing.

For burgeoning dressmakers, this book showcases a vast array of sustainable and natural fabrics, reveals how to breathe life into old garments and entices the would-be sewer to dress handmade. Interspersed with sustainable tips, from advice on keeping an eco-friendly sewing space and how to better care for your garments, to guidance on recycling old clothes, using up fabric scraps and making repairs, this book is an indispensable reference to a more considered approach to sewing, that will encourage you to create long-lasting projects to cherish.

With womenswear sizes ranging from 8 to 22 and menswear sizes ranging from XS to XL, along with five full-size pattern sheets, expert sewers Caroline Akselson and Alexandra Bruce cover everything you need to build your sewing repertoire and grow in confidence as you sew yourself sustainable.
