I think he looked far better with the beard though.

Minus beard? Oh no

EATmum Sat 24-Jan-15 19:07:47

Oh I'm very excited about this. Ridiculously so. Thank you!

ZingTheGreat Sun 25-Jan-15 16:01:34

ooh thanks for that! looking forward to it.

I'm not a dressmaker but love the show. Patrick is dishy

Oooh, lovely! Just in time to replace the allotment for me, I was wondering what to watch smile

Gatekeeper Thu 29-Jan-15 10:49:26

argghh...he looks awful with just the 'tache

blackheartsgirl Thu 29-Jan-15 11:36:19

I dont fancy him now sad

RunningKatie Thu 29-Jan-15 16:28:07

I am so excited, I'm getting my own sewing machine soon, I love this programme smile

Oh no! Patrick has shaved his beard. Just the 'tache is not a good look for him.

So what do we think of this series' contestants? I'm rather liking the unflappable army chap and the very tall woman with short grey hair. The producers were clearly hoping that the Romanian lass would be the new Chinelo (sp?) but she's irritating and doesn't seem to have the talent.

I finally managed to watch the first one on catch up then fell asleep during the vest task....

Me and DD watched both episodes on i player last night at her request, she had heard about it at school. She has been really keen on sewing lately and I bought a foot with a finger guard so that she can use my machine a couple of weeks ago.

I am really fussy when I sew. I know that they are against the clock and all that but there was little I would be happy with if I were doing it.

I thought the cut outs/top stitching on the army man's spotty dress were really badly finished, that the judges missed things on his trousers and that his zip on the dress had a bulge I would do again if I had been sewing them.

I think Lorna is great and love Ryan (is that his name, the 20 year old), I thought his blue dress was much too low cut but then I am old.

There is another thread on this in Telly Addicts in case you think no one is watching smile

With regard to the time limits, I think it's impossibly to achieve perfection when working to the tight deadline. That was Alex's downfall.

lavendersun Sat 14-Feb-15 09:22:26

I wouldn't be able to do it - I couldn't compromise!

But I wouldn't lose my cool like Alex did, she just didn't seem to be able to cope under pressure.
