The quarter-finalists face British and Irish fabrics week. First up is the pattern challenge, which is a stern test of their soft tailoring skills, as judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young ask the sewers to create a `Workers Jacket' from linen. Next, it's the transformation challenge, and the sewers are asked to take inspiration from the British seaside by turning stripy deckchairs and parasols into stylish garments in just 90 minutes.
