    Sandy,

    I think it is a SZ #. Thanks for giving us the area codes.

    If you have the time, I'd really recomend going to SZ. Half of the fun is picking out the facric. There is sooooo much great fabric to choose from. Lots of the taylors will take you around and help you select appropriate fabric. If you don't have the time, Rani's suggestion is a great one.

    Hi all

    I wonder how everyone went with getting their maternity clothes made in Shenzhen or in HK and whether they could recommend their tailors and tell me the price.

    That seems amazing to get a shirt made for $40 including material. Was that $40 HK?

    Can i draw a picture and ask them to make something up from that or is it too risky to do it this way?
    :crib
    Also, where did you buy the US maternity clothes that you wanted copied?

    Hi Tutor,

    Another member recommended a tailor called Molly on the 5th floor.
    I tried her a couple of weeks ago and she did a fantastic job copying the shirts I gave her. She charges HK$50 for stitching. Material is around HK$20-30/meter. She accompanied me to the the fabric section and helped me select the correct fabrics and even bargained for me.
    I'm sure she can copy a style from a book/magazine.

    When I was pregnant, my husband was going to the US and I bought online from Old Navy and Gap and had it shipped to his hotel.

    Molly is at 5072.
