12 brand new sewers follow the pattern for a twist top, transform office wear and create cut-out, made-to-measure dresses as The Great British Sewing Bee returns for its ninth series.


As Sara Pascoe welcomes the new sewers to the Sewing Bee in Leeds, judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young want to see how the newbies deal with 'Classics with a Twist'.


For their first Pattern Challenge, the sewers make a top with a twist at its centre, which is a straightforward construction with a tricky brain-teaser. And for the 90-minute Transformation Challenge, they take the office uniform, a pencil skirt and blouse, and give it their own personal twist to reflect their style.


Finally, in the Made to Measure round, the sewers meet their models for the first time and attempt to perfectly fit a dress that has cut-out details. Who will impress the judges and win Garment of the Week, and whose hopes of staying in the competition won’t last beyond week one?
