Can anyone recommend me a good seamstress? as i need to get my dress altered.
All help would be much apreciated
I am making a full length cheongsum and bustier dress for my bridesmaid. Her charges are pretty ressonable, definitely cheaper than if you make it at a bridal studio.
However I had to buy the cloth/material which I purchased from Royal Fabrics at Arab street where they have beautiful sequinned, lace, chiffon , etc fabrics. I spent a total of 300-400 dollars on material alone for both myself and bridesmaid.
her workman ship price depends on your design. Yes, she can make a copy if you want.
Her charges at least in the range of 150-200 + SGD onwards . Again it is subject how intricate or complicated your design is.
AhJo77, I do not have pictures yet as the end product is not ready but I trust Judy's work. Give her a call if you are interested.
Hope this helps.
Hi im looking at a mtm wedding dress, mine is pretty simple really, i would like to know yr charges, please do give me yr email so i can forward you the pictures, thanks.Hi,
What is your budget for this? I'm a 2013 btb, own a tailor shop and a designer myself. I can do this for u but need to know what's ur rough budget?
Hi all, can give Hong a try, good quality work. Contact 96968131
The sampling charges was mentioned since day one that if you proceed with production is fully waived.Hong is unreliable, the first time he came down he did not bring his material book.
First meet up with a client is always understanding the clients need, in this case is their corporate needs. There are thousands of different fabrications, we need to understanding what client require before we zero into recommending suitable fabrications.
the second meet up, he didnt bring his measuring tape and i had to lend him mine. He also failed to deliver the sample on time.
2nd meet up agenda is to shortlist suitable fabrication with them, no measurement is being mentioned, and this lady is petty enough to mention about borrowing a measuring tape to measure her staff.
the third time I saw him, the dress was not made accordingly to the measurement I gave him and he refused to proceed with the meet up becos we did not confirm his quotation. really disappointed. as he played me out on last meet up and he knew that he had to be there as my director will be there on that day and i got scolded becos of him..
No comfirmation was given to us and we are expected to rush out the samples in 2 days, we went to the extend of buying the fabrics and stitch up the dress and jacket even without receiving a black and white confirmation. I think you have to be fair to us to at least give us a written comfirmation before we proceed further instead of flaring out here. It is really nothing personal, we are also running a humble business.
I would like to highlight that the SAMPLE DRESS IS NOT FREE. it costs money $200.00!
Hey steffdarling, I think I have found 2 seamstress and 1 shop who does bridesmaids dresses... however, you may need to look for the designs and they replicate it (except Love Potion who has their own rack of bridesmaids dresses)
Kim's Seamstress: do not have facebook page but saw this: http://www.theweddingscoop.com/entr...gant-wedding-at-the-fullerton-hotel-singapore
Mui's Sewing (Look for Liam): https://www.facebook.com/MuiSewing?ref=br_tf
Love Potion: https://www.facebook.com/lovepotion.sg
Love Potion has a shop in far east, quote me $80 for a skirt with materials...
Kim Seamstress: have made an appointment to take a look before deciding but her place is at tampines... quote me $70 with materials
Mui's Sewing: still deciding... quote me $80 with no materials, offered to bring me to people's park to buy materials...
I'm kinda torn between Kim & Mui
