Do you get clothes stitched or buy readymade clothes?

i find that if you buy some good cloth but the tailor spoils it, it is a thorough waste and you will not use that item. It is better to go in for a readymade item and get it altered for length and width. The stitchign is good and the cutting is of a standard quality. Do you prefer to buy readymade clothes?

ohh we always buy ready made clothes... But when I was a kid, we usually have our school uniform blouses done by a dressmaker.

I usually buy readymade clothes, beacuse they are not as many tailor shops as before, and many of them are for those who are in moddle ages or old ages. And readymade clothes in many department stres or small shops are various in clour and style, it is easy to choose my own clothes that fit to me.

If I buy some good cloth I wouldn't even consider having someone else cut and sew it... if anybody is going to ruin it it will be me and only me!!! I bought some beautiful green velvety spandex material to make a pair of pants with. I made TWO pairs of pants out of other material I had just to make sure I knew what I was doing, and then ended up making them too short... in the waist and the length! I wear them anyway, that is how much I LOVE that material! I also buy stuff off the rack too, I really don't have a preference, I like both.

Yup, I prefer to buy readymade clothes - at least I can try them first to see if it fits and suits me. Previously I had my clothes made by the tailor, but half the time, the dress might look good on a model or in a book, but it did not suit me. So there were many dresses that were made and not worn. So now I find it easier and more cost effective to buy readymade!

Earlier i used to stitch clothes especially my trousers and shirts. Nowadays i wear mostly T-shirts and ninety percent have been gifted to me by my relatives and friends. I have so many that there are quite a few in my wardrobe which i still haven`t worn. Nowadays the only thing that i stitch are my pajamas and that too rarely as they last a very long time.As you say it is better to buy readymades as nowadays there is tremendous variety unlike the old days when there were no branded ones, so we had to rely on the tailor.

Hi there. I generally prefer to buy ready-to-wear clothes, since I find it quite expensive to have custom-made clothes. The only time that I go to the tailor would be to have some of my clothes repaired or during times when I really need to have a tailor-fitted outfit, e.g. uniforms, business suits, etc. Another advantage of buying ready-to-wear clothes is that I get them instantly whereas I'd have to wait a couple of days for tailor-made clothes to be finished.

I buy them readymade. I don't think that I have anything in my closet that is tailored. I wouldn't do that for jeans or anything, maybe a formal dress but thats it.

I prefer ready-to-wear clothes because it is more convenient and time-saving. You do not have to go to a tailor or dressmaker to get your style because they are millions available in the market. Well, although I buy a readymade cloth, I still check the quality.

I myself buy things to fit but if by chance later it gets ripped or needs to be taken in then I will not go to a tailor but to someone whom I know can sew. I think that is the best bet as places you pay for the service can just as easily mess it up. Even if a friend or family member asks to be paid, atleast you can guarantee a better job.
