"Working with Imogen is a real joy, she is very quick to understand my requests and is also good at suggesting new ideas."
" As I am not built in standard proportions the job must have been more challenging but Imogen rose to it."
"I absolutely loved my experience from start to finish."
" I wish I had just gone straight to Imogen rather than waste time trawling online and various shops. "
"Imogen has made two bespoke suits for me with custom-made linings and I have been nothing but thrilled with the outcome. Both fit so well and her work comes highly recommended by me."

In 1942, my maternal grandfather parachuted into Greece as part of an SOE operation. I would have thought that saving his parachute was far from his mind as he liaised with the Greek resistance.
Word of the Week
Doctor : Alteration tailor.
Because a good one can fix all sorts of dodgy garments and a bad one will kill them stone dead.
Kicking your heels : No work to do.
Tailors sit on their boards to sew, crossing one leg over the other to create a good platform on which to rest whatever you are working on. With no work the legs just dangle freely.
(On a related note - I recently found out the muscle which crosses your thigh is called the "Sartorius" muscle, named after tailors because of the way they sit)
