Bound to. Show them that video if they don’t know what you mean.  But seriously why bother?  T shirts are cheap, just buy v necks or have some made.

my lady is in south pattaya rd other side from tukom and opposite gafee coffee place (something like that)  to shorten trousers she charges 30 bht and i usually give her 2 x 20 bht

She may have moved a bit further , I went and dropped off some pants to her and she was situated directly opposite Tukcom.

the lady opposite nikom court  on soi buakow diagonally opposite subway she start around 2pm if your lucky 
50 baht same price as thais.
She's good and fair with prices unlike some other places, it's 2pm Thai time so could be 3pm 4pm or not at all

I have noticed some of the seamstresses were not around the last couple of weeks. Any confirmed sightings lately?

I always ask the ladies that do my laundry if they can do it or know of somebody. Never had a problem with the results. Drop the work of together with my laundry and it will be ready when the laundry is done...

No need to search out a specific lady at a specific address.

Assuming she does 20 jobs a day at 60baht each , that's 1200b ........ about a ST a day! Better than some Soi 6 girls!

Anyway , I was a walking around looking for one to get some job done and as someone posted , just look for the sewing machine......... fond mine in a soi near the Easy R Con bar

IIRC there was a guy in front of the Family Mart on the Buakhio/ Lengkee corner as well. He did some stuff for me while I waited.  Finding a good cobbler is handy as well- I find that the glue in a lot of shoes is not suited to the humidity here and they blow out quite quickly. I normally wear in a set of running shoes for a week then get them restitched with fishing line.- probably gets an extra 12-18 months out of them. Not as great an issue with visitors but handy when one lives here.

I don't know the current prices but they are low for the work you get done. Just be sure to establish the price before. A few years ago when I went to collect my stuff for a lady set up in the street, I ask "how much" the lady said "up to you". It was fine, she accepted the price I came up with but it was awkward .
