GREAT BRITISH SEWING BEE - BRING BACK OUR ANN LADBURY


Ann Ladbury - alive and well and living in Yorkshire
I know there is now a great interest in making clothes, not just to save money, but to wear something that fits perfectly and is like no other garment to be found in any shop. Hence the new television programme on BBC 2 on Tuesdays around 8pm.

Many of us have always made clothes, from simple dresses to coats and suits and my own inspiration has been derived from books and television programmes in the past under the presentation of Ann Ladbury.  As well as being a skilled dressmaker with a famous family background in tailoring, Ann is a great writer who has produced dozens of books on sewing. She is a valued member of the Society of Women Writers and Journalists and has a great personality - well, she headed so many TV programmes for 20 years.   How I wish she had been chosen to present this new TV production which does need some pepping up.
