We sure have numerous tailors in the city, stitching tons of ethnic wear but this week we went around Egmore to discover fashion tailors, who put together off shoulder tops, summer dresses and everything western. Starting at just INR 350, guys!
These Tailors In & Around Egmore Will Stitch Stylish, Western Outfits For You
Located on the ground floor of Spencer Plaza, is this retail outlet which also has a master tailor. The senior tailor here manages to stitch up some well-fitting one-pieces and tops. You can get yourselves some trendy sleeveless tops and dresses stitched at INR 350 and INR 550. They also stitch party-wear blouses and gowns. Yes, getting that perfect flowy satin gown just got easier. The pricing of the gowns vary with material and layers required, starting at INR 1,200. We feel this is not the place for precise, complex designs, but more of a place to get your everyday comfortable western wear stitched.

Quite a find this one, we were first lost trying to get around this place, but once we did, it was so worth it. The boys here, who have their setup inside a men’s clothing shop called Style Icon, actually do a great job with summer dresses. We got ourselves an off-shoulder Kalamkari dress and green lehenga blouse stitched here and both were perfect. It’s not every day that off-shoulder fittings come out perfect, but these people manage to do a great job at that. And all this at just INR 600 to INR 1,000 only. Make sure to take a sample design or dress along with you, in case you’re getting the complicated stuff stitched and trust them with the rest.
Also, on special request they finish up your outfits in less than two days if needed.
