A local tailor

2019-12-28 (115)

Here is a local tailor.  Most people here have their clothing made to order.  You purchase your fabric, then take it to a tailor to fashion into a shirt or a dress or whatever you’d like.  There are usually posters like the one below with ideas of the possible styles.  To the right of these posters you’ll see pieces of tape with measurements on them.  Perhaps they are for different customers or for the different styles.  They do not use paper patterns here like we’re used to.

This young man was helping the tailor by ironing the pieces he prepared.  The heavy cast iron is filled with hot coals.
