(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) For those in the tailoring business, Ramadan is the busiest time ever as people like to wear new clothes for Eid. Most tailors in the city say they have stopped taking new orders as they are booked to capacity.

''It is difficult to get new clothes stitched during this time as most tailors are booked till Eid. I went to three tailoring shops to get a new dress stitched but none were free. The fourth tailor agreed but he charged me more money - RO12. Last month I got an outfit made for RO8,'' said Asila al Naamani, a Mawaleh resident.

We have stopped taking new orders unless the customer wants delivery after Eid. Our charges vary from RO6 to RO12 depending on the style hosen and remains the same throughout the year,'' said K M Kipara, a women's dressmaker in Muscat.

The case is no different for dishdasha tailors. Hamdoon al Farsi, a customer at one of the dishdasha tailoring shops in Wadi Adai said, ''I am here to request the tailor to stitch me a new dishdasha because I never get my size in readymade ones. I have to get one stitched if I want a good fit and I don't mind paying extra.''

Though this is the prime time for dishdasha tailors as well, they say they haven't increased the stitching charges. ''Most Omani men prefer custom-made dishdashas. But we don't charge more as we get our profits from the large number of orders. We charge between RO8 and RO14 depending on the material chosen,'' said M Naseer, a tailor.

''I stopped accepting any new orders last week asĀ­ I am running against deadline to finish the work that I have in hand for Eid,'' he
