  1. Too funny! But unfortunately,I have an aversion to facial hair on men – bad matrimonial experience, but you don’t want to hear about that!
    2nd instalment tomorrow – can’t wait!!!!!

  2. Tempest Devyne says:

    I would like to strongly disagree with your post…..WE, the viewers are the winners….because we get to watch Patrick…and Sandra is probably the biggest winner, getting to check out his bottom allegedly for professional trouser-making reasons 😉

  3. Jacqueline says:

    He’s not a contestant – he’s a judge! I’m not sure who I would like to win, but I think the wrong person left last week. Looking forward to the next episode though.

  4. Lucym808 says:

    I just want to know why you’re not in it.

  5. Funnygrrl says:

    Whee!! I found the first episode on youtube. We don’t have it in Canada anywhere else as far as I know.
    So excited that I get to see this!
    Patrick is impeccable. I want to go fabric shopping with him. Then stop for tea as we look over our purchases. Too much?

    • Sabs says:

      Um, NO! There are WAY more things I would want to do…..all strictly sewing related of course…

      • Funnygrrl says:

        Ha ha! If only my husband would figure out that talking about fabric and sewing is hawt… Come on! Facing, pressing, bust darts.
        Maybe, that’s another post…

    • i’m in canada, too, and was sad that i couldn’t watch anything on bbc online, so thanks for telling us you found it on youtube – now i can watch the contestants and the terribly dashing patrick 🙂

  6. this is my oasis on Tuesdays – and no, I remain on team Tilly!!!

  7. I just love that! He is quite stylish in a strange sort of way, but he kind of freaks me out!

  8. Sabs says:


    Just put the button up on my blog… thanks for this amazeballs idea, i love it!

  9. EmSewCrazy says:

    BoooHoo! BBC won’t let us American’s watch it! Sounds like so much fun! I’m so sad cause this year’s project runway is blah!!!!

  10. Vicki Kate says:

    Yay Karen! Brilliant.

  11. louise says:

    Dont you think he looks abit like Mr. Selfridge? Sadly he hasnt got my vote, but love his outfit

  12. Hayley says:

    His beard is gorgeous! xXx

  13. Helen says:

    Hilarious! I ashamed to admit that I was so excited about the sewing and Tilly and the others, I never even noticed that Patrick was good looking until I read all the blogs and twitter comments AFTER the show had finished!

  14. Yay, added it to mine too! It’s pretty obvious though why he has a beard – I reckon he would look all of 16 without it. 😉

  15. He’s pretty yummy AND knows about sewing too #swoon – love the button!


  16. Caroline says:

    I am hoping that Marc and Ann unite to form an indestructible force of sewing charm and chops. I love his sweet Steampunkness (he and his wife sew in front of the telly together!) and Ann’s redoubtable British can-do-ness. They are my new superheroes!

  17. Ruth says:

    I might have read too much into the first episode but I’m sure I caught Paddy giving Tilly the eye, if you know what I mean. Anyone else notice?
    He’s gorgeous. Don’t you just love a well turned out man with a dry sense of humour?

  18. Philippa says:

    Grooming like that -sigh – will it ever come to a High Street near me?!

  19. AnotherKaren says:

    Did I see a brief snippet of a trailer in which Sandra was checking out the hang of Patrick’s trousers (specifically his sit-upon area) as part of this week’s Trouser Challenge? Or was that just a dream? I feel a swoon coming on – be so kind as to pass the smelling salts, lead me to a chaise longue and throw a blanket over me. Now, carry on and don’t mind me…

  20. Much as I think Patrick is gorgeous, I’m rooting for Ann!

  21. oonaballoona says:

    harumph. i guess i know what happened… i gotta catch up!

  23. sewforward says:

    I’m rooting for Ann too. She is amazing and so stunning! But even so there is nothing wrong with looking at Mr Patrick. 😉

  24. He is a bit funny though – suggesting to a 91 year old woman making a dress for a 50+ yo woman that the sleeve should have finished above the elbow. Ladies ‘of a certain age’ do NOT show their elbows and knees!!! 😉

  25. Roobeedoo says:

    These comments are hilarious!
    I only EVER marry men with beards 😀

  26. Heather Lou says:

    I want to do terrible, wonderful things to that man. TERRIBLE AND WONDERFUL.

  27. Rachel Pinheiro says:

    Bow ties are cool, the doctor has said it x

  28. Ha ha…my hubby has a beard, can talk sewing till the cows come home and will go fabric shopping. If only he was 7 feet tall and could tailor….;-)

  29. Gjeometry says:

    Hee, you’re cute, Karen! I think Patrick would blush if he saw this button. 🙂

  30. Oh, I was so afraid we were going to be asked to take sides. Phew. Which is pretty much what we all think about Patrick. It has been interesting to see what the BBC picked as the ‘cream’ of amateur sewers.
    Anybody else agree they would have palpitations having to sew under that time pressure – and with someone looking over your shoulder?

  31. Fiona says:

    Patrick is just not my sort at all, you can have him!
    I’d like Sandra to win.

  32. Yay! Just got to watch the episode on YT, as it’s not in Canada. Great show, I hope it has a long run. I love the attention to detail. Yes, I agree, Patrick should win. Mmmm…Patrick.

  33. Thanks to MadebyMeg for posting the link, I watched this with pleasure! What a pity they have to eliminate candidates… As for Patrick. Mh. Yes, I see what you mean. Interesting. Yes. By all means, yes. Truth is, I just find him perhaps a tiny tad to tidy (I’ll try to read that aloud several times very quickly, now). Don’t you want to ruffle his hair a little? OK, don’t answer that, I know you want to, Karen :D.

    he’s handsome!

    I don’t think we get the show here in the States, so I may have to see if the episodes are online. Is it similar to Project Runway?
