33 Lạc Trung, Hai Bà Trưng, Hanoi
I recently threw out a gray jacket that I had owned for almost five years. But before I tossed it I decided to give in to all these rumors about tailors in Hanoi having the AMAZING ability to make an exact copy of your garments. I was still skeptical though because this jacket had so many small details. I thought, “It won’t be perfect, but maybe it’ll still FEEL the same. (I know what you’re thinking –but it was a really nice jacket! I don’t care if it made me look like a hobo).
Nhung is a very talented woman. She asked me what I liked about the jacket and if there was anything I would change about it. We discussed colors and materials we should use, she was very good about giving her artistic opinion while considering my own tastes as well. Also, I thought the price was more than fair considering the outstanding service I received before she even began the work.
The jacket was perfect! She even used the same exact material to replicate the smallest details on the INSIDE of the jacket. I recommend Nhung for ANY or your tailoring needs. I’ll definitely be back in another five years :)
Ordered a bean bag by email and Nhung replied very quickly. Just had to say what colour I wanted and that was it. Just a few days and turned up on time and is spot on. Seems like really good material and it is very well made. Separate liner inside (really well made too) so the outside can be easily washed.
I now own a pro-made bean bag. Correction, my wife owns it.
I went to see Nhung two weeks ago with a special request: to make a bag for my music instrument.
She was very honest and said she never done that in the past so she wasn't sure how it would look like.
I brought my own fabric, the instrument, and explain to her in details how it should be like.
We did some trying to make sure the instrument would fit in the bag, and finally today, the bag was ready. It is exactly what I wanted, with 2 straps to carry it around like a bag pack.
She really did an incredible job at studying the shapes of the instrument, wondering if the zipper could damage it,... in other words, really caring about details and quality.
I also had, with my mum who was visiting, clothes made: tee shirts, pants, skirts, etc, and we were very pleased with it.
To summarize, Nhung is a hell of a tailor - an artist!- , putting all her heart into her work and caring to satisfy her customers.
Top quality! top service! I'll be back to have other clothes made and to try the cafe they just opened!
Nhung copied some t-shirts for me (not the most exciting request, I know) and did a fantastic job; the shirts look great and she managed to squeeze two shirts out of a meter of fabric (though next time I'd definitely bring her more to work with) . She's very friendly and easy to communicate with, and while I can't speak for her more complex work (having never seen it), I would definitely recommend her!
