Make It, Own It, Love It

by Matt Chapple

Matt Chapple, the UK’s top amateur stitcher and winner of the BBC’s Great British Sewing Bee 2015, shares everything you need to know about repairing and maintaining your attire. Focusing on making sewing easy and fun, the basic kit is explained and followed by step-by-step instructions on how to make projects such as a box-pleated skirt and adding bias binding to pocket edges for a splash of colour. Matt’s no-nonsense language strips away the complexity of sewing, as he gives practical advice on how to repair fabrics from denim and corduroy to tweed and wool, and offers tips to make wardrobe malfunctions a thing of the past.
