Forget fast fashion and cheap trends - Serena Baker is here to help you craft the sustainable wardrobe of your dreams!
In 2021, Serena Baker became the youngest ever - and first Scottish - winner of The Great British Sewing Bee. She thrilled the judges with her incredible attention to detail and wowed viewers with her distinctive 'refashioning projects', putting sustainability at the heart of her creations.
Whether you're brand new to sewing or already know the ropes but fancy trying something a little different, Serena will take you on a journey to reinvent your wardrobe.
In Serena Sews, you'll learn how to:
- master must-have skills - from zip insertion to pressing perfection - to boost your sewing confidence and give your garments a professional finish
- work with basic pattern blocks to adapt and rework as you build your repertoire
- 'refashion' existing items like an oversized shirt into a summer dress, or an old pair of jeans into a cute crop top
- save money and work sustainably by choosing pre-loved garments and fabrics for your projects
Serena Sews breathes fresh life into the craft of sewing to make one-off, versatile, long-lasting items to cherish. The magic of this approach makes Serena Sews a book to come back to again and again. It's brimming full of sewing happiness - for you, your friends and family, and the planet.
