This seamstress is recommended by my mum's friend... her daughters have tailor-made the EGs with her... And my sis and mum also make their dress with her too... decent pricing... $200+. It's at Amara shopping arcade #02-K2.
Hi Grace, thanks for your comments. Her cutting is pretty good. But the material, design and color matching is done by me as I know what is the outcome i wanted... She will advise on the pros and con...
I can only attest to her handiwork but you need to ask if she can do designing and material choosing.
no worries, Sotonglet....wat i need to know is, if Kim can deliver...in the sense of her workmanship, handiwork etc...the rest no worries...cos i will go to her with my finalised 2 designs...so she can advise based on my bodyshape...
oh ya, did she bring u to Arab Street to choose the material etc? how much was the lace tat u bought? was it french corded lace ar?? looks like leh...it's damn ex man
Nope, she did not. I got my materials by my self. Checked the colors on my body as 1 piece before i bought the materials.
The lace is not french lace. It is just emborideried corded lace, no idea what is it. I bought this in thailand. I have no idea where on earth in this shop too... I was brought by a very nice shopkeeper(in baiyoke) where i bought my wedding shoes from. I was telling her I wanted to buy some lace to make a gown, showed her the picture I wanted, and she brought me to like 4 wholesale shops/factory in pratunum...
For the rest, I went to a few shops, but I could only find the color in duchess satin I wanted in a shop in arab street, but I cannot remember the name though. What I did was I took the lace and the lining, wrap round my whole body to see the effect to confirm that it suited my coloring.
I had a terrible experience with Sharon from Tanjong Pagar Plaza. Not only she didn't get the style right, she also totally sewn the zip very badly. She was very irresponsible when I called her. I had to call her many times to enquire about the dress. I would say a big no-no to this tailor. A colossal waste of time and money.
my mum's a tailor and she made the bridesmaid dresses for my sister's wedding, as well as some of my other friends' weddings. Her shop is Yin Yin Fashion at Blk 1, Tanjong Pagar Plaza #02-16, Tel no. 62217320 look for Ivy
hi.. wat is kim's rate like?? i might wan to make a dress for my ROM in Jan (is it enuff time for Kim to do?) and maybe one/two dresses for my mom n MIL can anyone send me the pics of the dress to see?? wat is her procedure to do a dress?? Do we have to have a design in mind? wat if i have no idea?? can she help?? my email [email protected]
her charges for a dress start at about $150 for simple designs and materials. If it's more complicated with expensive materials, it would be more but depends on design. You can bring pictures of what you roughly like to her and she can advise you.
Check your email, I've sent you a link to a picture
i am also contemplating on asking kim to make my wedding gown. Most gowns are rather heavy and i dont like those. can you email me at [email protected] if you have any pictures of your wedding gown to share?
Not too sure if Kim's has revised her rate. During my time (2004), a simple CS will cost me $100 for her workmanship and a complicated one (full beading fabric) cost me $200. For full beading, she has to unpick all the bead on the sewn area, if not the needle will break and then she will hand sewn back the beads.. It's very tedious, that's why more expensive.
1) Give her a call to check if the collection date is available
2) make an appt to see her and at the same time can check out her workmanship..keke..
3) get pictures and sketches on hand to show her so that she knows what you want. she doesn't design, only sew.
Below are the dresses that Kim made for me.That was 2004. Well, now i'm no longer so slim..haha.
You may check back the Nov 03 thread. A lady by the nickname "female", posted a link to her album. You can see her simple, elegant and sexy wedding gown done by Kim. You're looking for something light, so may be Kim is really suitable for you. Suprisingly after all these years, the link is still active!
anyone has requested kim to help sew your wedding gown? wondering what's her rate now & is she very busy? coz i'm thinking of requesting for her help to sew my gown as well, & depending if she's very busy now or not to decide when I should call her up. my ad is end of the year. =)
My mum and i went to this seamstress at Woodlands last year and we both tailormade a dinner dress. Price is reasonable and workmanship is good. Think someone has posted her url few pages back in this thread. She does rom, evening gowns, bridesmaid dresses etc.
For further details, you may call to enquire at 96802646, Mrs Ng. She is more conversant in mandarin than english but not to worry, she is a very friendly lady.
If anyone wish to view the pic of our dresses, you may also pm me
