if u are looking for basic alterations (i.e. length cropping, tapering of pants) can check out the 2nd floor of Old Airport Road hawker centre. there are a couple of alteration shops there

if not designer stuff, I’d usually go the heartlands. Designer stuff go Clancy ba.

Ivan at FEP also worth a consideration.

one I’ve been going for many many years is this seamstress called Lisa at AMK block 133, right at the corner last unit of the stretch of shops. I think I was recommended there at hwz too the first time.

been there so many times until I became close with the aunty lol.

I considered Meng Yee to be quite good. Now it's owned by a Mainland Chinese and his wife. You all went during the previous owner era is it.

I tried Clancy as well. Pricey but quality is good.
Yes, the quality really top notch. I just got back my leather jacket which i send it for shortening the sleeves and i'm very happy with it!

Have tried Alt-To-Fit at Clementi. Decent work where the ladies are quite accommodating.
