Alterations Or Well-Fitted Blouses? This Yusuf Sarai Tailor Does It All

2468 Interested |


In an inconspicuous corner of Yusuf Sarai market sits Akhtar, a super-reliable tailor for when you need to get simple, daily wear outfits stitched, clothes altered or new blouses made. 

Great For

Custom-made dresses, alteration of clothes, dress fittings, blouse stitching.

What Makes It Awesome

Our fellow features writer (who’s been going to him for the past two years) vouches for the quality of his work. Akhtar has a history of working with top-notch designers for around six years before he set office (read; a humble chair and a sewing machine) in Yusuf Sarai almost 10 years ago. Another bonus: his charges are quite reasonable as well. To give you an idea, he’ll charge between INR 250-400 (depending on the fabric) for stitching a new blouse. 

To find him, you have to enter the Mandir Wali Gali and take a right from the Jain Store and you'll see him sitting in a corner on your left. 

What Could Be Better

We wish that with his expertise, we could get suitable-for-a-wedding type outfits made from him as well (which he knows how to, but can’t because of space constraints and lack of equipment).
