Seamstress Yangon Market

By Backabit      
The big market in Yangon(Myanmar) is just that - Big!!!

I think you could buy anything there from Rubies to Roulette Wheels. The specialisms seem to be gathered together - so there is a jewellery quarter , a clothes quarter, general goods, some places to sit and eat while you are working your way round, a tailoring section where you can get measured up and a seamstress section where that suit will probably be made for collection in a few hours.

The clattering of the machines as the needles do their work is quite something. It seems to be the place where Singer sewing machines are sent to die and then find a new life , this one is a Chinese model. This lady found my fascination at her skill speed and dexterity equally fascinating.

Some stalls were very specialist. So there were a couple that just sold bras. I stared at them for a while ( to the amusement of my wife) before I realised what is was that had captured my interest. Both were run by men. Family tradition or vocation?
