Navya posted on 14 September

When the big day is fast approaching, we all begin to wonder where does one find a good tailor? Have you noticed, that even women who love to overshare for the most part turn mum when you ask them about a good tailor? Good tailors who know can sew up magic and give you custom-fitted clothes that fit perfectly are a rarity and we don’t blame you if you don’t want to share your favourite Master’s name. But we are not like that. We love to share and so, here, we give you a list of boutiques and neighbourhood tailors who do a stellar job of putting together salwar suits, blouses, dresses, and pants. You can thank us now!
