Q: How much does it cost to get a casual dress tailor made in Shanghai?

I want to get a few cute dresses made in time for the summer but have little experience with tailors in Shanghai. For a knee-length dress using regular fabric (ie. not expensive ones like silk or cashmere), how much should I pay?

It obviously depends on which tailor you choose but I would generally say try not to pay more than 300 especially of you bring your own fabric.

Wow - this went 3 weeks without a reply!!!

 

yeah, only a few hundred. But, depends on quality.

 

Take a local around the markets, and get prices from them! Otherwise, you'll get ripped (even the non-SH Chinese will get ripped off!)

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
