    Hello,
    Wanted to post my experience working with a small tailor in Hoi An. The name is T & C Cloth Shop at 14 Le Loi St. I got the recommendation from my hotel, the Nhi Trung. You will get a 10% discount if you mention the hotel referred you. I brought a copy of an athletic sleeveless shirt I wanted copied, and I choose a 2-layer wrap skirt from their selection. The bottom layer is silk, the top layer a gauzy, see-thru printed fabric I loved. I paid 20 for the shirt (of which she sewn in a side zipper pocket I forgot to tell her wasn't necessary-no charge) and 35.00 for the skirt. I went in at 1pm, and they were done to PERFECTION at 7pm! I was so thrilled!
    You will be approached by many tailors, quoting lower prices, for example, 15.00 for dress. When you go there, it will be a simple or even unflattering dress pattern, and only 2 or 3 plain dull fabrics to choose from that you wouldn't want! Then as you can imagine, the price goes up significantly from there.
    Why go thru the hassle??? I am so thrilled with my experience with this tailor!
