Sewing has a been a big one at HFHM HQ so we thought we'd watch a few that showcased sartorial talents.First up is Lauren's pick, the Australian period drama The Dressmaker, directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse. Then it's time for Jordan's choice, the 2017 film (with the rumoured final performance from Daniel Day Lewis) Phantom Thread, directed by the great Paul Thomas Anderson.
Back with another episode of marital film watching, Jordan and Lauren celebrate the release of the final season of one of their favourite TV Shows, Netflix's The Crown, by taking a look at some films revolving around the British Monarchy.
