good tailor?

Post by emma 2 » Thu, 30 Jun 2005 3:17 pm

… having seen all these BEAUTIFUL fabrics today…..

Can someone recommend me a good tailor?
How much should I expect to pay for a dress (just for work, I'll bring my fabric).
I know I can google, but I want a personal recommendation.
Thanks!

Emma,

Just curious, have you found someone who made the dress as you wanted it? I'm in need of a dress for a wedding within the month and know I'll never find it ready made. Someone else suggested having it made. Thanks!

Yes. At Peninsular Plaza. Personality Menshop. Not sure if their price is considered average though .. but definitely worth every penny.

Hi everyone, i want to share with you a bad experience i had with this alteration shop located behind Converse at Far East Plaza on the 3rd level. It is sharing the shop space with a shop that sells 'Victorian style clothes'. I had a pair of Mango pants and bermudas altered by the couple there. My bermudas was supposed to be sized down but was still too loose despite giving her the right proportions and the seamstress said if i want to size it down again, i should pay again. Even insisted I lost weight. She asked me to shift the pants buckle inwards and i will be able to wear!

She forgot to alter my Mango pants and i had to come back another day. When I went back to collect, I could see ripples running down the inner legs. There was also an iron print on one part of the inner leg. She then said she will mend the ripples. I went back yesterday and she merely ran another thread over the pants. My pants were ruined. When I wanted a refund of the alteration charge in the hope of finding someone who will eventually be able to repair my pants, she said there was nothing wrong from what she see and no refund, she already did alterations and didnt even charge me the second time. She even chase us out of the shop and claim she didnt alter the inner leg finally. There were clearly 2 strings of stitches and she could still deny it. We could not argue with her because we didnt have any the receipt, the receipt was given to her when I collect the pants the first time round. And anyway she wrote in such illegible Chinese handwriting that you cannot argue with her even if she is wrong.

I have given her so much business and this is how they treated me when things go wrong. I am so disheartened How evil can people be!

Please BEWARE when sending your clothings to this Shop. Better approach other shops cos you WILL NOT get a refund or compensation like me if _ _ _'_ ALTERATION spoils your clothes . My pants cost $55!
