Sprawling three floors, South Bund is home to hundreds of tailors and seamstresses and stocks pretty much every fabric from silk and cashmere, to cotton and chiffon, denim and more. Frequented by tourists to Shanghai, tailoring costs are generally cheap here. How much you spend depends on your fabric of choice, but garments can be made for as little 1,000RMB for a suit, 300RMB for a dress, 150RMB for jeans and 100RMB for a shirt.
