Tailors - how does it work?


I am travelling to Bali soon. I have never had anything tailored. HOw does it work?

- can you bring a simliar style garment and they can make a copy

- can you bring photos/pictures of what you would like

- do they have books of photos of garments you can choose from?

All of the above....

If you really want a particular fabric, I suggest you take the garment you want copied with you. They will copy almost anything.

As mentioned you can do any of those options.

I had a favourite pair of trousers. I took them and got them copied in 2 different fabrics. I like the new ones even better. The fabric is lovely, soft and doesn't need ironing ( my favourite bit). LOL

I had a jacket and skirt made in the same fabric to mix and match. Still great many years later. Although they are a bit tight now (wish I could say they shrank but I'd be lying).

I either have to lose weight or get some more made next trip.

I have also had things made by browsing catalogues and choosing a garment and the material.
