Tracy - alas, no. There used to be a newsagent on Oxford Street and RD Franks that stocked it, but both have closed. Ebay seller "solovej*nastr" is the best source for single issues now.

Lovely looking summery skirt. Do you manage to find copies of La Mia Boutique somewhere in London?

Lovely skirt. Your closets must be bursting with all the sewing you do! BTW, be sure to use a pressing cloth when ironing cotton sateen. The ones I've worked with in the past tended to fade rather quickly...
