I have to admit I have been addicted to these sewing contests on tv. Some months ago I followed the Norwegian show, called “Det store symesterskapet”, which I bumped into by chance. Loved it! But then, a week ago I discovered the British version, “The Great British Sewing Bee”, and I fell completely in love! This program was even better executed, and I loved the host Claudia, which made magic out of the concept of chit-chatting with the contestants. (Never thought the Norwegian host did a great job.)

Well, my interest in alternating my wardrobe and make new items has only grown more intense. I have been watching all the episodes on YouTube (full versions of each and every program – wow!), and now I am filled up to my ears with fresh ideas for clothing!

And it didn’t stop with that… I have also detected that a French version of the program has been made – a whole season is completed and now they are about to start a second season. In France to concept is named “Cousu Main”, which means “handmade”. As I am fluent in French I take great interest in following this series as well, and I have experienced stunning creations by contestants that carry with them French tradition of bold creativity and sheer fun!

My, oh, my.
Good thing I have a lot of material left to make both dresses, skirts and other things for the rest of the summer holiday. There are still five weeks left.
