    Question Make clothes

    Hi,

    'Not many people go to tailors because most people don't make clothes these days, they buy ready clothes'

    Is this sentence correct and how can I correct it?


    Thanks a lot

    People who made clothes didn't go to tailors either.

    Try this:

    Not many people go to tailors these days. They don't have their clothes made; they buy ready-made clothes in shops.
