The Great British Sewing Bee - BBC 2

Great British Sewing Bee on Youtube Episode 1

You may or may not have heard about this show produced by the BBC, but if you sew, it was a treat to watch.  It is only 4 episodes and available on Youtube, happily it seems that there will be another season.
It was a group of sewists brought together in a competitive format, given sewing projects to complete with time constraints.  It was a blast to watch, as I recognized the dilemmas the individuals faced working against the clock.

Here are the projects.
A Line skirt with invisible zipper 3 hours
Neckline Alteration 1 hour
Dress 6 hours
Men's Zip fly trousers 3.5 hours
Add patch pockets to a skirt 1 hour
Silk blouse 6 hours
Child's dress 3 hours
Dress Alteration 1.5 hours
Tailored Jacket 7.5 hours
Hand Embellishing a purse 1.5 hours
Evening dress 8 hours

I might have to try this to see if I can finish any of these projects given the show's time constraints.
