    Default Doll Seamstresses in Singapore?

    Hi everyone! I was just wondering if there are any good doll seamstresses in Singapore. I just got my Soul Vito Boy and he's extremely hard to find clothes for so I think I'm gonna have to commission some for him.

    I know there's one at Sunshine Plaza. Not too sure how much they charge though. Anyone knows?
    Also, if you know of others, do tell!
    I live in the East area so places here or near Clementi would be awesome.

    Clothes i need commissioned:
    - Jeans
    - Outercoat
    - White Top

    and possibly a few others.

    Help?

    what size is your doll? 1/3 (60cm above), 1/4 (45cm above), 1/6 (23cm)?
    the other thing yo ucan do is.... go doa forum and commission. it's actually much easier. cause locally, hardly will find anyone doing dolls clothing.
    or if not, tda is coming soon, so u can see if there's any clothes that'll fit your doll

    The shop at Sunshine Plaza's price is quite ok. You can ask for discounts if you order more. I got her to make underwear for my yos.

    @Tsukishi: Unfortunately my doll's size is quite in between thus many online seamstresses refuse to take the commission.

    Here are his measurements:
    > Height : 52 cm
    > Girth of head : 7.25 inch
    > Girth of neck : 9.7 cm
    > Girth of chest : 23.2 cm
    > Girth of waist : 17.3 cm
    > Girth of hips : 22.3 cm
    > Shoulder width(with arms) : 13 cm
    > Length of "from wrist to shoulder : 16 cm
    > Length of "from ankle to waist :30 cm
    > Foot length : 7.5 cm
    > Foot width : 3 cm

    As you can see, he's quite the muscular mini...XDD

    Yeah I'm hoping to go have a look see at TDA this month. Hopefully I'll be able to find something for him there. Right now I got a pair of jeans altered to fit him and I think I have a t-shirt that should be able to fit him so if that works out I'll be bringing him along to TDA to see if there are stuff that fits.

    @SarahMeowz: I went to Sunshine Plaza's shop recently and was quite shocked that a blazer i wanted commissioned for my mini boy would cost me above $100. Painful. And the design was so simple too. XDD

    OMG! Oh my my my! Yeah! I do actually have a clear design. Do you perhaps have some examples of what your grandma can do? Thanks so much by the way!

    @Aiko-chan: Probably will try there again as a last resort. I've contacted a few DOA seamstresses so far but yeah... nothing.... they prefer not to work with sizes they don't have.
