From the Great British Sewing Bee's youngest-ever winner, a debut celebrating the key trends of simple sewing and sustainability.

In 2021, Serena Baker became Sewing Bee's youngest ever winner. The judges thrilled to her incredible attention to detail, praising her as the show's 'most technical seamstress'. Her blossoming style became more sculptural, dramatic and visually bold. That flawless, off-the-shoulder show-stealer of a yellow frock blew us all away!

Devotees watching at home took Serena to their hearts, too. Captivated by her 
cute, thoughtful refashionings, fans new and old can't wait to see what she does next. Now, with stunning photography and design, SERENA SEWS breathes fresh life into the craft of sewing to make one-off, versatile, long-lasting items to cherish.

SERENA SEWS brings straightforward 'simple sewing' to the fore:
- Key pieces of kit to get you started - practical, thrifty and stress-free
- Must-have skills - from zip insertion to pressing perfection - to enhance sewing confidence and give a professional finish
- Basic pattern blocks to adapt and rework as you build your repertoire

SERENA SEWS focuses on sustainability:
- Hunt out preloved items - at home, online, in your go-to charity shop - to resourcefully sew-upcycle into something modern, practical and 100% unique
- From a memento quilt to a bag stitched from a beloved old skirt, a super-easy headband sewn from graphic scraps to a knockout evening tuxedo . . . easy-to-follow guides will refresh, transform and interchange your wardrobe.

A book to return to again and again, SERENA SEWS is brim-full of sewing happiness 
- for you, your friends and family, and the planet.
