    Pants Hemmed

    Hey

    Does anyone know the cost of having pants just hemmed?
    I am not looking for any elaborate tailoring

    I went to a girl in Lamai and she did an incredible job, I just forget what I paid

    And if anyone knows a good place in Patong/Phuket please let me know

    And she did an amazing job!
    Best I've had in years, IMO

    Too bad I am not going to Samui

    I like my pants tapered down the leg also and she did an incredible job......I just forgot the price

    So I imagine I can get it all down for 300-500baht at most

    Paid 1400baht yesterday.................


    My MIL can do the hemming but I really like the tapering too

    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    I've done my own a few times with needle and thread... FREE. But if I need any nice stuff done I just hand it to my laundry lady and tell her what I want. I like to carry my reading glasses in a breast pocket, but many shirts don't have a pocket worth a dam. I get one of the shirts I like and a seamstress in Chiang Mai makes a nice hidden pocket for me for about 100 baht.
