      Nods, I am more of book person- will be checking out period bindings at the British Library. There is still lots to see at the V&A. As you say there is so much to see.
      > It is lovely you are going in April! I hope you are going for a while to get to all of the things you are showing! I was there last year and it took 2 weeks to get to the list you have so good for you!

      I'm going for 16 days.

      > Might I also suggest to email Bath's Museums and the V&A and the Tate and see if they will give you a 'closed tour' as you are a costumer looking to expand your knowledge. It helped me to get to see a lot of things that are not on display at right now!

      Will try that, thanks.

I also picked up a Forepart/Sleeve fabric I am going to pearl and perhaps wear this coming 12th Night (2013).

      Very true, I've lived in the UK in the past. Steak & Kidney pie is also a good choice.

      You probably know this- but if you book ahead, you can get a very cheap ticket on the Eurostar, I booked in late Jan for April. I was able to get one for £39. Am also saving time and money by flying into London and out of Paris, rather than backtracking to London. Easy to book online or with agents. Open Jaw is the term.
