Hi Lara and Tina,
Can you recommend a couple of tailors in Jakarta who can make women’s clothes from a picture and who have reasonable English?
Also do you know somewhere where you can find fabrics for women’s clothes that are more for day wear? I’ve found lots of fabrics for evening wear but not for day time.
Thank you so much for your help.
Thank you for your inquiry.
Yanny is great for all things formal. You can find her at Jl Nipah 12 No. 2B, Kebayoran Baru at 7253 835.
Pupun has been around for many years. I myself have used her for over 13 years. You should provide your own fabric. Her shop is located in Kemang at Jl Pejaten Barat I/37. Ph: 719 6810. It’s a small side street but you will see her sign and will need to walk in from the street.
One final tip: If you have a deadline for items you are having made, add about a 1-2 week advance window to that date depending on the complexity of the clothing. This will avoid any last minute disasters.
For fabric shopping:
Did you check out
Mayestik? Alta Moda on Fatmawati near Lotto or Tanah Abang?
Mayestik: Jl Tebah III Los AKS Gunung, Kebayoran Baru.
Alta Moda: Plasa Golden Komplek, Block B 1-2 / http://www.alta-moda.com/ This store does cater more to high end fabrics but some shops around in the same Kompleks have a variety of every day material.
Tanah Abang: Jl KH Mas Mansyur, Jakarta PUsat
Hope all of the above tips are useful.
