Plus size tailoring for traditional and modern styles
Sep 2019 • Friends
I am a fairly basic seamstress so I want to underline that I knew a few of my orders were not easy.

I had Ao Dai made with non traditional sleeves (long bell sleeves) and neckline (scoop - high necklines highlight double chins -.-) and those turned out spectacular.

I also had several overcoats made, bringing in silk I had found in the city.

But the most impressive feat was that I brought pictures and drawings of a dress I once had which had fallen apart. It's a halter top sundress but I couldn't figure out how to make it myself.

After 10 minutes of consultation and drawing and brainstorming, I now have 2 copies of that dress which are pretty much exact in the shape, but with the most adorable cottons.

Not only that but as a tall, fat woman its valuable that I never felt like she was disgusted or judgemental of me, and she was excited to help me out with clothes that would look good and feel good.

I am currently on holiday from Sydney, Australia and wanted important dresses to be made. I found this tailor near Ben Thanh markets and decided to go in. I’m glad I did because I would highly recommed this Tailor to anyone looking for beautiful dresses to be made to fit! I was extremely happy with all the dresses I purchased and will definitely be returning to create more dresses! Very accommodating and amazing results!

Sadly just looking to charge a lot of money and not doing a good job. Much much better places to go who will take proper measurement and use more suitable materials...

Very well made suit and stunning ao dai dresses
Apr 2018 • Couples
My fiancee and I stopped by Thao Silk while we were browsing tailors in Saigon. Good thing we did, because we ended up getting a suit, an ao dai, and some pants tailored there!

The suit is the best fitting suit I've ever worn. Even when I put it on during the first fitting, I could tell it was a better fitting suit than any I've worn before. The final product looks amazing, I am really happy with it. The next time I'm in Saigon, I'm going back to get 1-2 more!

The ao dai my fiancee bought was gorgeous and fit perfectly. We ended up buying some more ao dais in Hue but the one we bought from Thao Silk was undoubtedly the best.

Great service
Nov 2016 • Friends
We first used this tailor shop 2 years ago. My friend needed a tuxedo for her son's high school graduation. He has Down's syndrome and has your class Down's syndrome body shape - short and broad with a size 18 neck. To rent a tux in our home city in Canada was out of the question as it would have to be altered too much. We found this shop by accident and ordered tux, vest, bow tie and shirt. My friend had brought her son's measurement's with her. We were very pleased with the result. The graduation was 6 months hence from the purchase and by that time the tux needed a little alteration as her son had put on some weight. The tailor in our city was so impressed with the tux that she wanted to buy it after my son's friend had had his graduation. Needless when we just visited Vietnam again this year we went right to this tailor shop and had a bunch of things made. Pleased with everything.

Easy to miss: a narrow shop with green/maroon sign on the way to the market but so well worth visiting. I had a beautiful teal silk top that fits perfectly made in a day and it would've been delivered to my hotel if I hadn't collected it. Wide range of materials and delightful women who discuss style options intelligently. Also, for a westerner, the prices are very low. Their embroidered dresses are lovely - order anything!

Cushion covers-do not touch
Jun 2015 • Couples
We were very disappointed in the cushion covers which we commissioned. they were over-priced but we hoped this meant they would be well made! In fact they were only lined on one side and they had been patched at the front. We shall not be able to use them unless we can find someone who can re-sew them. we contacted the store to give them the opportunity to put this right, but they failed to respond.
