Came across this site yesterday http://www.darnanddusted.com/ Think I saw some knitwear on there.

I've never used them before, but yesterday I emailed to see about them fixing a pair of jeans. Knee blowouts.

thx for this - will def get in touch, looks like cool work

Does anyone know anyone / where in London I could get some bespoke pieces made, or tailoring patterns created or similar?

I've got a pair of Uniqlo trousers that I love. The fit and the details are really nice, but they were £9 in the sale and I've worn them to death. Uniqlo have stopped making them so I want to get some made based off of the ones I already own.

Any ideas?

I bet a few of you know some good seamstresses.

Does anyone know of a good place in East London for stuff like taking trousers in? London Fashion Workrooms is annoying to get to within their opening times.

I have seen this place anyone used them? http://www.studio62workroom.co.uk/
