Took two pairs of trousers for Joanne to take up. The other in the photos were were also taken in. Unfortunately the were jut a tad tight. Without any hesitation Joanne let some out and had them ready to go the next day. Great service and brilliant work. Made better by Joanne’s smile and enthusiasm. I will be back for all my tailoring needs. I suppose I should also comment on how reasonable the prices, which they are more than. Great work Joanne!
