The Great British Sewing Bee has whittled down its contestants to just three remaining competitors ahead of next week’s hotly-anticipated finale.

After putting this year’s cohort through a variety of challenging tasks, judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young will soon be choosing their winner.

Next week’s episode will see the finalists take on a trio of celebration wear challenges, including creating a little boys kilt without a pattern, turning party dresses into fun outfits fit to wear at a carnival, and creating unique gowns using luxury fabric in the Made to Measure challenge.

At the end of the three challenges, one lucky seamstress will be crowned champion.

But who’s in the grand final?

Clare works as a medical consultant at a hospital in Portsmouth, with a specialist interest in lung cancer – and her passion for sewing helps to distract her from her often hectic career.

Clare learnt how to sew at the age of eight, however, she didn’t take a keen interest into it until five years ago when she fell in love with vintage clothing – with many of her designs using modern copies of vintage patterns.
