    Excellent quality at excellent prices
    Went to Blue Lantern with my two daughters aged 19 and 21. We ordered a dress , top and matching trousers for me, and a dress for one daughter, and skirt and matching blouse for my other daughter. We showed Lana photos of what we had in mind and the clothes we received were wonderful! Very similar to our photos, and fit perfectly. I make a lot of my own clothes at home and was delighted to see how well finished each piece was. Prices were very competitive and quality of silk beautiful. Lana was very helpful and communication was fluid. Highly recommend.

    Great Linen suit!!!!
    I happen to be walking by this tailor shop and saw a great pair of pants. They made me the pair that I saw in the colour I wanted. I decided to also make a matching shirt and I’m so happy that I decided to do this. I saw that they had some great bathing suits and if I had more time, I would’ve made one of those as well. Everything was ready when it was promised, so I was really happy about that as I did not have a lot of time.

    AMAZING!!!
    Amazing. Very friendly and professional. Bought 2 custom made suits which fitted my body perfectly. Went to their shop yesterday at about 4.50 pm and they managed to deliver the suits to my hotel today which is 45 minutes away. Really amazed. She is really efficient and fast. Thank you once again! Would recommend 10/10!! Those coming to Danang/Hoi An do visit her shop!

    Excellent, quality clothing made to my own design and also the tailors.
    I was recommended this clothing and tailor store by my friend and as I trusted her opinion, I tried Lana and Tam’s Blue Lantern shop. After purchasing around 14 items most made from copies of some of my favourite clothing, and some custom made, I have been impressed with their professional, personal and efficient service. Their 3/4 length pants they made me are exceptional. I would use Blue Lantern time and time again. Helpful, friendly and fabulous knowledge and tailoring experience.

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.

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!

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:

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.

I had four casual dresses made here and the ladies were very helpful and accommodating. They understood what I needed and were happy to tailor them a second time when the dresses were too tight in the bust. I recommend being very explicit up front about how you like your clothes to fit. The ladies were so sweet, and I thought the customer service was very good. I got for dresses and a pair of pants for $95 USD.

It can be hard to find a great tailor in Hoi An amongst the hundreds of shops. A friend and I found Blue Lantern and showed them a picture we had found online of our designs. We picked our fabrics from their huge collection and gave our measurements...

In 4 hours the two piece and jumpsuit were made and fit perfectly! Thank you very much to the team :)

Made 6 dresses and 2 tops at Blue Lantern. Was attracted by the dresses displayed outside and the prices for the dresses were reasonable so I made 2 first. I was quite happy with the way the dresses turned out so made 4 more dresses and my mum made 2 tops.

Summary of review:
Quality of tailoring is so so. Clothes were made too tight to begin with and had to make several alterations. Prices are ok for designs hung outside the shop but too expensive for anything else as the tailoring is only so so and I think I could buy something of similar quality for a cheaper price if it is not custom made. Many alterations need to be made. I suggest giving 3 days if you want to make clothing in Hoi An as we had to accept some of the clothing even though they weren't the best fit because there was not enough time for a 2nd fitting. Buy from this shop if you have time for several fittings and are ok with so so tailoring for a slightly cheaper price then the shop beside it.

We also did tailoring at AoBaBa which was a much better experience and quality was much better so you pay for what you get around here.

In general, I find that tailoring clothes in Hoi An would only be worth it if you have a body shape which cannot fit into standard sized clothing or if there is something that you really like and can't find it in the shops.

Detailed reviews for the clothing we made here:

Dress 1 and 2: Chosen from the designs hung outside the shop. One fitted perfectly while one was too tight and the straps were out of place (did not cover the bra straps) so I asked them to make adjustments. They were happy to make adjustments after the first fitting but not so happy when the adjustments were still not done well and I asked to further adjust. But they will still do it nonetheless if you insist.

Dress 3: Simple cotton dress with two different colours for top and bottom. First dress was made wrongly (colours reversed) but the shopkeeper admitted the mistake and asked me to try it on for the cutting and would redo it for me. Fitted perfectly. She did try to sell me the dress which was made wrongly but didn't push too hard.

Dress 4: Made of better cotton. Slightly more than 1.5x the price of the one made with cheaper cotton but I feel the dresses made with cheaper cotton turned out prettier. Dress was too tight when first made. Dress bottom was pleated which I really disliked. This is my fault as I didn't notice that there were pleats on the original design but even so the outcome was very different from the original picture. But shopkeeper was very accommodating and changed it for me to an A line skirt using the existing cloth.

Dress 5 and 6: Made of chiffon with cotton lining. Material was comfortable. Dresses were made too tight and had too be altered. Bottom of dresses were made completely wrong and had to be redone. Shopkeeper saw the mistake and was reluctant but did not put up a fuss to redo. Redoing was fast but much is left to be said about the quality of the tailoring. Collar of one of the dresses was crooked but was not adjusted. Pleats on left and right side of one dress was sewn crooked but I didn't have time to redo the mistakes so it was USD40 wasted.

Tops: Made too tight although mum specifically asked them to make it loose. Adjustments were made and one was comfortable while the other was still slightly tight but we accepted it. They would have made the adjustments if we had asked.

My family all had clothing made and we kept going back! Beautiful selection of materials and so many styles. I highly recommend! You can bring along your favourite pieces and have copies made or chose from their large selection. Go mad! And enjoy their service. 👍👌😍
