We’ve got fantastic new judges joining our glittering panel, including costume designer on BBC’s Doctor Who, Ray Holman and TV presenter, Debbie Shore!
As the costume designer on BBC Doctor Who, Ray designs and oversees the creation and construction of all the characters, including historical, contemporary & futuristic costumes.
Showstopping queen of the sequins, the Strictly head costume designer and commercial seamstress will certainly add sparkle to our judging dream team.
Beloved former Sewing Bee sensation, nimble fingered Stuart is a columnist, author and TV personality with a passion for textiles and crafting innovation.
Our first Dressmaker of the Year, refashion queen & blogger supreme. Portia’s know-how and competition insights make her a true asset to our judging panel.
Following in her mother’s footsteps into dressmaking, Debbie trained at the London College of Fashion and is now a much-loved TV presenter.
Editor of Sew magazine, Lucy Jobber will also be casting a final eye over this year's competition entries - and she can't wait to see what creations you've been busy stitching!
Thank you to everyone who entered into our Dressmaker of the Year 2019.
