Concierge.com's insider take:

Create your own body-skimming qipao (cheongsam) dress at this indoor market, where tailors and fabric vendors occupy the third floor. Choose from a rainbow of silks and flip through the stylebooks to find your perfect China-girl look. A made-to-order gown can take just 24 hours and cost as little as 200 yuan ($25)—though Beijing lacks a tailoring tradition, so don't expect perfection. The other four floors offer an enormous selection of faux designer wear, everything from shoes to shawls to sunglasses, all purveyed by vendors who will bargain fiercely.
