I have had some great things made here before, but am writing a word of warning about a particular stall: no 206 Julienne.

Shopping for that perfect and honest tailor is not easy. My shopping experience here has been mixed results. I finally found a good tailor but had to go thru some disasters. All of them will quote prices which are about 30% higher for tourists. Ladies and Mensa two piece suits or jacket/skirt for ladies will cost 500 average. Some fabric... More

Stall 237 (Jennifer) : I had 8 shirts made for RMB 150 the shirt (big size shirts for my husband, some had different inside collar colors). I gave them a shirt to copy and asked to increase the sleeves by +3cm (1 inch). Reverse engeenring was all well done even with the extra technical difficulty. Stall 334: I bought many... More

Go up to the third floor at the Fabric Market; walk slightly ahead then left as you step off the escalator and find 389, managed by Yang Yong Gang. The service here is always friendly, the prices are good and the quality is very high. Yang and his lovely wife can do anything for you and they will ensure you... More

Great for maxi dresses, fitted tops and other dresses. Pang was brilliant! I got 2 very different maxi dresses made and a very thick... More

After a positive experience with a tailor in a dilapidated market in Beijing (via friend's referral), I came to Shanghai expecting a greater experience given the fashion sense in this city. Without personal referrals though, I turned to the internet for advice. Perhaps my research wasn't comprehensive, but hopefully this review will enable future market-goers better navigate the labyrinth of... More

Best to know exactly what you want from this place before you arrive. It is fantastic value but only if you end up with something you'll actually enjoy wearing. It is always better if you leave yourself time to have things adjusted if they're not exactly as you specified. Don't be shy about this. Jenny Taylor (247) has made several... More

I had short time, so I brought a suit that I know fit perfect and told her to copy it and it worked out great. My girlfriend ordered a cashmere coat from... More

Do not believe the rave reviews about this market. The shops are a rip off, by at least 70% on prices quoted. So bargain to the nth degree! I would not recommend getting anything tailored as the quality of workmanship is not upto speed. The shop owners are charming until they have your order, then you spend the rest of... More
