I and my wife found this tailor by chance walking around Hoi An and we were very lucky! I got a nice jacket and my wife a casual dress, both Chinese- Oriental styled, in one day and with only one try!! We were helped by a very kind and efficient lady.
We highly recommend it!!!

After searching several shops (including some that have more ratings on trip advisor) I found Minh to be the sweetest and with the best prices. Her shop was the only one that had a large flower pattern that I wanted for a dress, she was willing to try simulate a lace flower pattern on a top which no one else bothered to try to do, and a couple clothes items needed no alterations after the first fitting. Minh also went out of her way to help us with shipping by stopping by our hostel after she was done with work to drop some items off as well as allowing us to ship a few items from a different shop along with the items purchased from her shop. I highly recommend going to Minh!!

I will highly recommend this tailor. Two adorable sisters who could not do enough to help you. I visit them last April 2015 and are very satisfied with the clothes. I bought two suites, two silk blouses and two cotton blouses. My husband is also satisfied with his shirts and vests.

We got a jacket for my husband and a top for my daughter. Both were finished the next day and didn't need any alterations. The staff are friendly and not pushy. They speak English and French.

After a night and morning of fumbling through the streets of Hoi An's tailoring maze... I happened upon this shop. What a find it was.

The previous night we had been to another shop that came highly recommended and honestly I found them pushy, almost rude in fact, so when I met Ty' (pronounced Tea) in Dong Duong she was a breath of fresh air.

Firstly, I showed her photos of what I was looking for. Explained the changes I wanted and then she patiently waited while I tried every colour combination imaginable. Whilst in the shop I saw another few things I liked and tried them too. She took my measurements, I paid a deposit and arranged to come back the following day for a fitting.

I was early for my fitting so dealt with another woman. We made some changes and I made another appointment for later that day. When I came back there was one problem remaining. Ty' had not been told about one thing I wanted changed and was incredibly apologetic. The issue for us was that we were leaving early the following morning... Though she could have just rushed the job, she instead asked what our travel arrangements were. I explained that we were planning on shipping things home so she offered to call the postal service to meet us at her shop. She had no objection, nor did she look remotely put out that we had got a suit made elsewhere and wanted ship everything home together. I paid for the shipping and left the rest to her....

A few days later I received an incredibly thorough email from the post office with all the postal details.

If you are looking for excellent service and tailoring provided by an absolute lady, then I highly recommend Ty' in Dong Duong Tailors.

Delighted with all 12 of my purchases!
Apr 2015 • Couples
The tailor scene in Hoi An is utterly overwhelming as everyone else has noted but I did my due diligence and am thrilled with my purchases from here.
On my first day I got quotes on a style of dress I wanted from a few tailors including the really highly rated ones on trip advisor. I was walking past this shop which was not on my list and loved some of their designs so I dropped in and got two dresses made, fully lined fitted etc for around $30 Aus. I also had a dress and skirt made at another highly rated shop on trip advisor for a similar cost.
The difference in quality and service was extreme. The dresses I had made here needed minor adjustments after one fitting they were perfect. Quality, cut and materials were exceptional. So I then ordered three more dresses, one skirt, four blouses and two pairs of pants. Am thrilled with all of them and they did this with a twenty four hour turn around.

I have been coming to Dong Duong to have my clothes made for over ten years and I have always been very satisfied . I have also recommended many friends over the years and they too have always been happy with they clothes they have had made here, men and women a like . One year they even made bridesmaid dresses for my daughter's wedding !
There are so many dressmakers in Hoi An - you do not know which one to choose - definitely go here !

Perfect, just what I need
Jan 2015 • Couples
Firts I am so sorry for writing my experience so late, becuase I was here with my husband in january. It was just casuality that we found this shop, but the experience was amazing. So lovely persons who work here and the quality they offer for the price is unbeatable. I brought them a Idea (picture) for my blue long night dress, which I saw in a magazine and after 2 days, they did exactly the same dress. The quality perfect, the finish faultless and really like I wanted or better. But the best, It was the service, one of my best memories from Hoi An. They were not agressive like in other places, they solve every little obstacle and they did me feel like a princess. Without doubt when I come back to Vietnam, I will visit them again, but with a lot of more Ideas.

The best
We tried three tailors and this was the best one. Thien Thanh shop was also very good, but we really enjoyed the atmosphere of Dong Duong. The staff made us feel very welcome and were not pushy. The quality was very high.

So happy we chose to work with Tia!

We made the short list of Tailor shops to visit in Hoi An, and due to the fixed fair prices here, the lack of pressure, and the warm, welcoming environment, we decided to make a few pieces and see how they went before increasing the order. My boyfriend and I ended up ordering 2 pairs of jeans, 1 tailored women's pant, 3 women's pants from patterns shown around the store that I liked, 2 winter coats, 1 dress (from a picture I had brought in), 1 pair of men's shorts, and 5 men's shirts, and we could not have been happier. Some of the items we were happy with from the first fitting, and just had to make slight fit alterations to our bodies. Others, like my dress I had been so excited for, were a huge disappointment when I first tried it on, as it was different than the way I had pictured it. But, Tia and the other women in the shop could tell I was not happy and started to work. I thought I was not going to like the dress after the second fitting, but they kept listening to the drastic changes I wanted. A lot of work and 4 fittings later, I have a dress I adore! Tia is so incredibly kind and so easy to talk to, which we found incredibly valuable when you work with someone for so much of your time on holiday. The price is fair from the beginning (we hate haggling), and she truly cared that we were happy with the items. I've worn a few of the pieces and everything is holding up great so far, and I'll make sure to update the review if the pieces fall apart (but I can't see that happening). We left as very happy customers!! Couldn't recommend Tia more.
