The outlets selling stitched clothes were getting the major share of the buyers. “Buying fabric and then getting it stitched properly from tailors as per modern designs is a tough job,” customers Sadia and Hina said.
“Now is the age of advancement and competition. One can buy new fashionable clothes from boutiques at reasonable price,” they added.
Another customer Shazia said, “Tailors sometimes compromise designs and size and also demand double charges when asked to stitch dress urgently.” Similarly, Shagufta a buyer at Cantonment Bazaar said, “Tailors do not honour promise of stitching clothes on time.”
Nasira and Beenish, who were busy in shopping clothes at a mall near Chowk Katchery, said that one can find clothes of different quality at boutiques, from cheaper to costlier ones.
