Clothes alteration

Post by brendanm » Mon, 27 Feb 2012 12:49 pm

Hi there
Not sure where to post this request so I shall post it here.

I have recently lost a lot of weight (yes the Dukan diet does work) and now I need to get my trousers and shirts altered.
I have seen lots of tailoring stores under HDB's but I am not sure of the quality of their work.
I want to get trousers and shirts taken in. I live in the Bukit Batok area so I would be looking for a tailor over in the west or around Holland village area.

Can anyone recommend someone?

The quality in your average HDB alterations shop won't be much different than any other tailoring establishment in Singapore for minor alterations, and should be fine. No problems for me, I've had dress pants jeans cut to length and hemmed.
