I thought I might as well start it. As then I won't have to go searching for the new thread.

I love Nicole's made to measures, I think it will between her & Claire in the end, maybe with Liz as the third finalist.

I promise to only chortle on this thread smile

I loved Nicole's skirt, it would have been incredible with the waist trim. It was in a different league to the rest.

Amazed Matt has squeaked through, but his skirt was better than Marks. Mark does seem lovely though- actually they all do. Real feel good tv.

I'll just leave my pattern weights here in the hope of finding you all next week.

Signing in. So excited for next week!

I hated Nicole's skirtblush. Don't get the love at all. Mind you, the only one I did like was Liz's.

Think the right person went but my money on an all female final - Matt seems increasingly ropey and without Nicole's flair.

Claire MTM wasn't up to scratch but her butterfly blouse was gorgeous and the transformation dress was really good as well.
I think the skirts came down to up close on the quality rather than how they looked at passing glance from a distance Nicole's wasn't my favourite but in terms of the craftsmanship it was probably the most well constructed

Place marking here for next week. I can’t believe there’s only two to go. That said I am still eternally relieved that the show was revived, I thought that it had been cancelled forever! I loved them all, pottery, painting, baking, sewing and allotment

Chalk-marking and notch-matching here for next week! Thanks again Dillite.

Poshjock do you have Netflix? The Big Flower Fight on there follows much the same format but with great big floral sculptures. Some really talented people on there.

Thanks for the new thread

Thanks for the thread. I'm really rooting for Claire to win but the curtain skirt wasn't good and I loved Nicole's. It will be a very close final with Claire /Nicole /Liz I think.

Thank You for the new thread. Signing in for next week.

Liz flies under the radar I think but she is consistent. My favourite is Nicole because she does take a few risks. I do find Claire (a brilliant sewer) a bit safe and I did think her flamenco skirt was a shocker.

I do think those flamenco skirts that weren't higher at the front than the back were just not right, they were then just a tiered long skirt, you can't do a flamenco in one that isn't, and the style of Nicole's was perfect.

SoupDragon Thu 11-Jun-20 09:02:25

It will be a very close final with Claire /Nicole /Liz I think.

I agree. It may well come down to who messes up as well as who does well too.

They were just flamenco inspired skirts weren't they? I was distracted by somewhat drunk DS1 complaining that he couldn't find his phone which is essential for walking the dog 🙄

Just clipping the corner to arrive late here, only started watching this series and I'm enjoying it although it's years since I've sewn - would like to get back into it.

Claire's stuff is usually really well sewn (agree about the skirt last night though, just a blip and we all have them) and I loved the way the ruffle sat on Nicole's skirt, although the fabric may not have been my choice. I liked Liz's skirt, although I'm not sure if Esme's remark 'it's very you' was a compliment or not (haven't watched from the start).

Just leaving my tailor’s tack here for next week

Roussette Thu 11-Jun-20 09:55:18

Yes, perhaps I'm being a bit harsh with the higher at the front flamenco look. smile

SoupDragon Thu 11-Jun-20 10:05:41

Part of the challenge is deciding what the judges are actually looking for
I guess,

Roussette Thu 11-Jun-20 10:11:16

Yes, agree this absolutely.

Esme loves bows, do bows! Patrick is a stickler for something, play to that!

CaptainMyCaptain Thu 11-Jun-20 10:15:02

I'm just watching again as someone on Facebook mentioned a little mouse in shot at one point. Also, there was a mention of Claire's grey jacket but she's wearing a short sleeved jumper.

Obsessed? I'm wasting my morning looking out for a mouse ffs.
