getting clothes made in Georgetown

Hello,

I would like to know if there are any tailors that are able to make clothes to measure quite quickly, much like they do in Bangkok and if i should bring some examples from home.

Is this an affordable option on an average budget please?

many thanks

We've not had any clothes made ourselves (Sabrina is a dressmaker so no need), but there have been similar questions on the forum in the past, and some recommendations too...

You might find this thread handy: tripadvisor.com.au/ShowTopic-g635527-i12669-…

And this one: tripadvisor.in/ShowTopic-g635527-i12669-k477…

And: www.my2home.info/index.php?topic=3036.0

One of the tailors mentioned online has also been written up in The Star newspaper: www.thestar.com.my/story.aspx…

Hope this helps, even if only a little ;-)

Glad we could help Jacqui.

In addition to tailors, another option is to check out the row of (mostly Indian, and most some variation of "Sam's Batik" in name) clothing shops on Jalan Penang. They have a huge variety of clothing, you never know what you might find.
