Q: Where do I find a fabric market and a seamstress in Changsha?

I'm looking for 1) a fabric market where I can pick up some nice fabric to take home with me and make my own clothes and 2) a tailor/seamstress I can go to to get a few authentic pieces of Chinese clothing (I'm female if that makes a difference) that will actually fit my (fairly average sized in the West but rather huge over here) frame.

 

I live in Yuelu district but have no problem travelling within Changsha to go where the bargains are,

 

Any help much appreciated.

You want to look for "羊毛" (yarn),  织品 and/or  布 (fabrics)

 

If you can't speak Chinese, bring along a friend. Most fabric places know someone who can do this. I just had a blue sweater made, but in another city. So, it's all about locating that fabric shop. The fabric shops all referred me to a seamtress/tailor who turned my purchase into a working article of clothing based on my specifications.

 

I wish I could offer you some more help, but I really don't know Changsha

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
