    Maternity clothes

    Sorry to hear of your experience with the Shenzhen tailors.

    In case anyone is interested, I am selling my maternity clothes as really low prices (about HK$80 per piece) because I need closet space . The stuff is in excellent condition, and include brands like Max Mara, Country Road, Pea in a Pod(USA) and Mothercare. Have some more clothes than pictured but you can view the rest at the foll link:

    Will fit those size 10, ht 5 ft 2" - 7"

    Please call me 7472 7449 if interested

    Ms Chan

    I've just picked up a whole bunch of stuff from Stephanie and am not impressed. It was the first and last time I'm getting anything made from her. The sizing was off and you are right... it looks like it's been made by some Home Ec. student. I have been recommended some other tailors but will give it a go personally before putting my two cents in.

    Shenzhen

    Sorry to hear about Shenzhen tailor experience.
    I have not used Stephanie but I used few other tailors in
    LoWu shopping center....and as you may guess, the result was not
    good.

    They made few good / okay pieces but tailor quality was not good so
    it did not last long. I also had to go throught few adjustment session for each piece but they could not make it right.

    Since then, I have not used any Shenzhen tailors.
    Instead, I have been using HK tailor in T.S.T. for 5 years or so.
    Price is reasonable and she does a good job. Of course, you have to bring your own fabric and design idea (you can consult with her
    about design but it is best if you bring some reference photo).
    This lady does not speak fluent English but she understand what I want every single time and she is always cheerful!
    She moved her small operation shop few times, but I am following her
    every time!

    Maybe, it is good idea for anyone who had a bad experience in Shenzhen to find HK tailor?!

    Also Hong Kong Tailors will resize certain things after your pregnancy at no cost if you so wish to do so. Shenzhen tailors will charge again for resizing.

    Hong Kong is much better but not always the case in Shenzhen. Even when I lived in Shenzhen I would come to Hong Kong for the tailor's have a guarantee. Although, I know several items may get sent to China for making the quality is still much better when working through Hong Kong. Plus, Hong Kong tailors count on longterm and repeat customers where as Shenzhen tailors at LuoHu Commercial City necessarily do not.

    Tailor information

    Hello, ladies.

    I have sent out PM to the people who requested the tailor information.

    As I mentioned before, they do not speak fluent English but they always make their best effort to communicate with you.
    (I am Japanese and do not speak any Cantonese but I have never had any problem communicating with them when it comes to tailoring or mending the clothes so far.)
    This shop is very small and operated by 2-3 HK ladies.

    If you want to tailor new clothes, i would suggest you to bring either picture or design so they can easily understand what you want. You also have to bring your own fabric for it.
    (They have some stock of fabric for their own use for alteration or other purpose. Sometime, they used their fabrics to alter my clothes.)

    Last time when I went there (couple weeks ago) to alter my clothes, they said if I have least favourite jeans or trouser, they can cut the top part off and add some stretch fabric to make maternity jeans / trouser to fit my size. So if you have problem finding the jeans/trousers to fit you, maybe you can consider to do this.

    Well, I hope they can help you as they always help my needs!
    Good luck ladies!
