Tailors and Dressmakers

We are staying 8 days at the Outrigger on the Lagoon in October. Can anyone help me with a good dressmaker and Tailor in the area and the likely cost of suits. I think the nearest town to the Outrigger is Sigatoka.

Don't know if you are going to get this sort of thing in Fiji. I maybe wrong, but Fiji is not like Bali or Thailand in that you can pick up cheap clothes etc.

I've never heard of it either in Fiji.

As well as Bali and Thailand, Hong Kong is a place that advertises suit making in 24 hours.

The following link posted by Bluestreek, a regular poster to this site, has information on a tailor in Nadi.


Hope this helps.

There are many tailors/dressmakers in Fiji and Sigatoka is bound to have at least 2 or 3 but don't expect quality workmanship as you would receive in Asia. I doubt that any would make suits but you will get dress/business trousers for men. Ask the staff at the resort for recommendations.

I would agree with previous posts as Fiji is not like Asia, where you can get dresses or suits made in 24hrs.

Not sure what you are after but the only tailor I am aware of in Sigatoka is Billimoria (just ask while in Sigatoka as it's not hard to locate the shop).

Hope this helps.
