  1. Great blog. Some other comments.

    the dressmaker - "otherwise" - beautiful quality, great service, reasonable. Can't recommend them highly enough.

    Mem in Friends of Fabric - so kind and helpful, things very nicely finished

    Chaz's - does women's hair too. Very good cutters, lovely colour, astonishingly reasonable. Really fun and friendly. I get lots of compliments about my hair, and can't imagine paying central London prices ever again...

  2. Thank you! Will add this in. Also to the 'Best's'. Also never knew that about Chaz's.. may have to try it out.
