    Clothes alterations recommendation - Central

    Need to get several Jeans, trousers etc altered.

    I've tried the usual suspects (Dorothy and the ones in Melbourne Plaza). They are all quoting me HKD150 to HKD250 per item.

    Are there any other cheaper options out there in Central? I am sure there are cheaper options beyond Central, but for the time being trying to limit my search to Central.

    Thanks!

    Chances are there is a seamstress in the wet market near you somewhere.

    My info is getting very dated now, but for what it's worth there used to be a shop in Sheung Wan, Wellland Centre that did cheap work. Like shri says, just find one in your local wet market.

    Yeah, all valid options, but was hoping for something closer by. No worries, the search goes on.

    There are quite a few tailors in Cathay Building in Wanchai.
