Not impressed
Nov 2019
I came across this tailor by chance. I liked one of the dresses on show and decided to order it. I told the tailor that I can not pick it up the following day, because I was on a day trip. Regardless she called my reception, which I perceive as unnecessarily pushy. The next day I went to pick up the dress. I noticed, that the neckline was way too low. She was very resistant to change anything, even though there was an obvious issue, then did the easy fix and just shortened the straps, instead of lowering the neckline. Even had to tell her to cut the hanging remaining of the straps! Such lazy work.

I would not recommend her. I would recommend other tailors in Hoi An.

I loved my experience at Blue Lantern. The tailors were friendly and very helpful. I only had one day left in Hoi An, and they kindly said they would make my two dresses that day. They quickly took my measurements and had the dresses completed that evening. When I picked them up, they were perfectly made to fit my shape. Thank you Blue Lantern! X

Great clothes, average service
Oct 2019 • Friends
Pros:
I had a dress and skirt made here, both about $5-10 aud cheaper than quoted at other tailors for same materials. My friend had a dress and three pairs of pants. All the clothes turned out well and the dress in particularly was exactly what I was after. In general they seemed rushed and even asked our other friend to watch their toddler while they fitted us. Other stores we used had much better customer service.

Cons:
On both occasions of return our items were not ready as promised and we had to come back at another time. My skirt was too long and when I asked for it to be shortened the lady questioned why I had asked for it that long in the first place - I had actually asked for it shorted but the lady measuring me had been convinced I needed it longer and agreed it would be no problem to shorten it later. My friend had asked for simple adjustments to her outfit (eg to add a button) and these were not completed when we came to get the items - the lady did it while we were there once my friend mentioned it.

Would not recommend
Jun 2019 • Family
My mom, sister and I had 6 different pieces of clothes made. Two dresses turned out fine, the other 4 didn’t work. After going back 4 different times, the items still weren’t what we had hoped for but we were leaving soon for the airport. One was so bad we left it at the shop and refused to pay for it. Never once did they apologize for never being when they told us to return and they constantly tried to tell us that the clothes were fine when they didn’t fit and were obviously rushed. Will not be returning. The stall in the market we also got clothes made at was cheaper and better!

Friendly service at the start: poor final dress
Nov 2018 • Family
We went to blue lantern as we found Lana approachable and friendly. Slowly the friendliness gave way to pushiness. We ordered 1 dress for a daughter which was to be copy of a dress on display: we picked similar quality fabric and the same style which is quite a simple straightforward style.
The final dress doesn't look anything like the original: measurements were poor, stitching was poor even basic tailoring techniques was poor such as: lots of folds and also neckline is a bit lopsided. Really not what was expected. We paid 25$ for the Childs dress and the dress doesn't reflect the price. Lana was quite unpleasant about altering the fitting and tried to push the dress as being perfect. Overall a bit dodgy. Wouldn't recommend.
I think the stores stock similar models and display these. very few shops actually have tailors with standards that can replicate. So for expensive clothes, jackets, silk fabrics please stick to larger reputed stores.

The price for a jumpsuit was almost $10 USD cheaper than the shop next door. I ended up getting a jumpsuit and a dress, and my boyfriend ended up getting two shirts. The shopkeeper (we never caught her name) was very nice and the clothes were ready within a few hours.

Excellent experience!
Aug 2018 • Friends
My friend and I were looking to get some clothes made and chose Blue Lantern as we liked the clothes outside. Tuyen was so helpful, accomodating and pleasant, and gave us loads of her time so we were completely happy with our order (a dress, a jumpsuit, shorts and a top). Originally she said it would be ready that evening which we thought was unbelievably quick! In fact when we went back at the specified time she said it would actually have to be the next morning, but we went later that evening to tell her what time we'd be there tomorrow, and despite the fact that she was shutting up the shop she invited us in to see the items that were ready (3 out of the 4). We wanted a couple of alterations after trying them which were dealt with perfectly, and the following day all our clothes were ready. We are really happy with how they turned out, and the price was great! A really fun experience made even better by good customer service. We have recommended to friends.

Dishonest
Mar 2018 • Solo
The quality of work was poor and there were holes in a skirt belt. I asked them to change it and when i went to pick it up they said they did it and packed it already but after still checking it i could see they had just cut it a bit, tried to push it inside and packed it and hoping i wont see it. They finally fixed it with the worst quality possible. I do not recommend them, there are cheaper and better tailors out there!

Picture if the “fixed” belt:

Happy with dress
Feb 2018 • Couples
I had decided not to get anything made in Hoi An as, I am not a shopper and the huge number of tailors was bewildering. However, I chanced upon Blue Lantern and spotted a silk dress on display outside. Loved the fabric but not the neckline. The girl who came out to speak to me was really nice. She explained that the neckline could be changed and pointed to another example. I had no pressure just a nice conversation. I decided to go ahead. I was a bit concerned that I only had a day left but she said no problem, it would be done the next day. She took some measurements and asked a few questions. I paid half for deposit and arranged to return the following day. My dress was ready and waiting for me. It seemed a little tight on the bust but there was nothing I thought I needed to change after discussing it with her, and it was a fitted style which I am not used to. Admittedly I have not gone over it with a fine tooth comb, but, for the price I paid, £21 for a silk dress I was happy with the end result. I didn't haggle with the price so maybe I could have got it a little cheaper but it was a decent fabric. I also liked the relaxed way that the transaction was done. I would go here again.
