“Fantastic Service, Highly Recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

I went to Miss Forget-Me-Not armed with pictures from catalogues. They were fantastic, patient and advised me as to what would suit me better. I would highly recommend the sisters to anyone wanting quality clothes made from Hoi An.

“Excellent tailor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

If anyone is looking at finding a tailor in Hoi An then you can't go past Miss Forget Me Not , stall 20 in the cloth market. Miss Forget Me Not and her sister Rose were very helpful and all of the clothes we had made were of fantastic quality and the workmanship was wonderful! In fact, Rose was so helpful that she told us polo shirts were better to buy in the market than to have made and she took us around and bartered for a much cheaper price than we would have otherwise paid.
The clothing was all made in the specified time period and with minimal alterations. We had a pair of shorts made at a shop front tailor nearby, which are meant to be better than the cloth market, but these had to be re-made and were not of the same quality. We would highly recommend Miss Forget Me Not and will be going back next year when we return to Vietnam.

“Fabulous service, fabulous prices, fabulous quality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We visited Miss Forget Me Not after being recommended by friends. We were not disappointed!

Her shop is in the cloth Market in the old town of Hoi An. Her stall number is 20. Being in the cloth market means that she does not need to pay a rental fee like all the fancy shops you see on the main streets. This means she can give you much more for your money and at a very very good price!

Both her and her sister will go completely out of their way for you and their main aim is customer satisfaction!

We started by asking her to replicate a top and pair of shorts for me to check her style and quality. I was told to come back the next day to try them on. To my amazement the clothes were made and looked lovely! They fit like a glove!

We then decided to get a full suit made for my boyfriend plus 8 shirts, 2 pairs of dress trousers, 2 pairs of shorts and a tie! All of which are wonderfully made and fit perfectly!

I ended up getting two dresses made (one of which was a very complicated full length design) she spoke for an hour or so with the dressmaker to ensure that what she made was what I wanted! I also got two dresses made for my little nieces, chinos, a blazer and more! The quality was fabulous.

On our final day of fittings we decided that we would get winter jackets made too!! Miss Forget Me Not went out of her way to find the exact colour of wool for it and ended up travelling to my hotel to ask my preference! Amazing!

Thank you so much Miss Forget Me Not! We will be back!! xxx

“you wont regret going to miss forget me not!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

anybody who gives her a bad review probably just looked fat in their new clothes.miss forget me not is the best. got 3 suits, all so well fitted- and i am FUSSY. she gives her opinion on how she thinks it should be styled, but ultimately helps you find the style you want. my girlfriend got a long evening dress.. she looks amazing in it.. really eye popping. we also got shirts, shorts, the lot. got us a discount on shipping through the post office, took us out for cau lau lunch the day we left.

it is quite intimidating going into the cloth market with all the women yelling at you to go to their shop. just have an idea what you want then go into shop 20 to see her..

“The BEST tailor in Hoi An!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

If you are thinking about getting tailor made clothes don't go anywhere but Ms. Forget-Me-Not! First of all - Ms. Forget Me Not is two sisters working together. But I will be referring to them as one.

My boyfriend and I have been in Hoi An for 4 days. The second day we went to MFMN with some pictures, which she immediately started measuring for. We were worried that we ordered too many things for her to do in three days, but she simply said: "Don't you worry. I can make anything for you. 10 dresses - it doesn't matter!".
I ordered three dresses and a blazer the first day. We talked about the fitting for a while, she took my measurements and made suggestions about the cut and length. When we came to deciding the fabric she took me with her around in the cloth market and showed me all the fabrics. I also asked her a lot of her opinion. When it came to my boyfriend, he got the same treatment. She uses the best fabric there is for suits - and it is half the price of what other tailors want. I asked her how they can do it so cheap, and she explained that her parents (former tailors) taught them the importance of good service and customer care. They have not bought an expensive shop like everyone else, but stayed in the cloth market which is much cheaper. She said that she knows that people will keep coming straight to them because of the price and the quality. We agreed and didn't try to get her to go down in price at any time. That would have been offensive.

The very next day we came back and everything was done (2 suits and a blazer for my boyfriend and 3 dresses and a blazer for me). After the fitting we agreed on some few adjustments, and we could pick them up the next day. The suits were amazing, they really understand fabric, sizing and fitting. Really, don't ever go to Yaly or A Dong Silk. They will make you pay more than twice as much for the same quality.
The second day I ordered one more dress, and the third day I ordered a last-minute pair of trousers (I found a picture in a magazine in the shop. The pair in the magazine costs over 400 dollars, she could make them for me for 32 dollars). You should note that the more you buy, the less you pay - she gives a very fine discount for returning customers.
We were to leave early in the morning the next day, so she offered to come to our hotel at 8 pm. with the trousers. So she did, and I tried them on. They were a bit too tight - no problem - she came back 20 minutes later, and it was a perfect fit! She said that we had bought so many things that we were first in line, and she wanted us to be happy. And we are!! We have nothing bad to say about the ms. Forget-me-not sisters. And why should we? When something is this amazing it deserves to be recognized. We will never forget Miss Forget-Me-Not!
