While visiting Hoi An i was being persuaded by my friend to do a custom made dress -
"It's like going to the Vatican and not seeing the Pope, she kept saying! He have to!!" In a normal scenario i wouldn't be in need of any persuasion - shopping is always a good idea!, but by this time i was accumulating lot´s of frustration while trying to communicate in English, with the masseuse therapists, for instance!! And i kept replying that instead of a dress i was probably going to leave the store with a Karate suit!!! That´s how much faith i had in it!! But i let myself go - only 1 dress i kept saying, and that´s it, cause my friend wouldn't go by herself!! we scanned the area and ended up picking Dong Silk Tailors, the fabrics looked nice here!! We were greeted and started to browse the fabrics available! I was approached by Dong which turned out to be an amazing taylor! Remember i only wanted a dress? She understood all the detailing, all the nuances of the cuts i wanted and by the time she took my measures i understood she was a professional!! I ended up with a Jumpsuit, a Kimono, a wool coat with velvet detailing, a wool pants with satin detailing, and two silk shirts to go with!! My husband bought 3 shorts, same style, different colors!! And all this made literally overnight!! We were so happy and have a really great trip story to tell, right?!! Thanks Dong for all your kind help and wisdom!!
