    For tailor made clothes, do we have to provide them the fabric?

      not necessary.. it actually depends.. cos if u got urself an ideal cloth u like den u can bring over and let them take a look.. if not, i think they might have a range of cloth to let u choose from.. it all depends on the tailor n shop.

        So the from price is the minimum price? Like if you only wanted a singlet made it would cost you 200 or whatever?

            Hi Marshmallow

            I just tried MEN's TRADITION at Peninsula Shopping Centre with my fiance. The tailor - Daniel, is a friendly guy and helps us select material for his shirts. His shirts will be ready next Wed, let u know about Daniel's workmanship yah?

            Btw, anyone has recommendations for MTM evening gown for older ladies? Its for my mum

              I know of someone who does tailor made pants. You can either provide your favourite pants and they make the exact same one or you can show them a design and provide your measurement and they will make the same one.

                  Hi Ladies,

                  Anyone know where you can get tailored made work wear such as shirts, skirts and pants.

                  Best if they do have material as well.

                    Went to this tailor at CenturyRoxy mall. Horrible workmanship! Alter lengths for pants or jeans still can make it. Make new clothings, forget it!

                          Good tailors for evening gowns normally take around 1.5mths, to 2mths to complete their creation, depending on the amount of embellishments required. What's your budget? Basic gowns start from $300-400 for the average tailor. The better their skills, you can expect $700-900 for a basic gown. Cheapest and most efficient way is to do alterations to existing off-the-rack gowns. Results can be just as good, depending on workmanship, and if there's a need to patch up details like sequins, beads, you also have to give around 2-3 weeks for work completion.

                              I managed to tailor for $140 (material inclusive) from a makeup artiste. She does evening gown (OTR) as well as tailor.
