I have been collecting fabrics for my 2013 wardrobe.
So far I have shopped at:
Stitch, Wanstead, London E11-great local store on the high street run by a friendly family
Regent Sewing, Ilford. Not so friendly in my experience and chaotic organisation, but a good range and quite cheap.
Walthamstow market esp. Sayed Fabrics-so cheap it's unbelievable
And today I took myself off on the tube into Soho.
I visited The Cloth House, Borovick, Berwick Street Cloth Shop, MacCulloch and Wallis and Kleins haberdashery on Noel Street. I spent a fortune on fabrics but am really pleased with what I got.
Aaaaaaghh hide the bags!! And receipts for that matter!! Central London ain't like the 'stow market.
