Top Dress Alterations related questions

Do I need to provide my tools or supplies for my dress alteration service?

Not necessarily, since most dress alteration experts can bring their sewing kit for the job. If you have tools on-hand or prefer to have them use your materials instead, you can provide them with a sewing machine, measuring tape, hand stitching needles, and scissors. For supplies like threads, beads, buttons, or any additional fabric and restyling needs, you can ask your Tasker to drop by the nearest store and get them for you.

How do I know if I need a new dress or an alteration?

Having your dress altered is a cost-effective way to reshape or restyle them. But if you are willing to spend on a new evening gown or cocktail dress, a purchase will always be the quickest solution. As for bespoke dresses that take months to materialise–like a wedding dress–one way to sculpt them flawlessly to your shape is through alteration.

Can I send my evening gown to dry clean after altering them?

Yes! After having your luxurious evening gown or dress altered, you can also get someone to send them to the nearest laundry shop for dry cleaning. Evening dresses are undeniably precious and valuable, so you want to make sure that your garments are safe and professionally laundered. Once done, your laundry expert can deliver your clothing the same day or the next, whichever you prefer.

How long does it take to alter a formal dress?

The exact turnaround time depends on the style and material of your dress, the scope and complexity of the alteration needed, and additional elements. Most tailors can adjust and alter formal dresses within a few days. For better results, it may be best to book an alteration service at least a few weeks before your event, or maybe a month or two in advance for good measure.

Can Taskers also help me alter coats and suits?

Yes! Not limited to altering fancy dresses, Taskers can also help adjust coats and suits according to your preferences. If you ever find the sleeves too long or the back too hollow and tight, just book an alteration expert near you and let your tailor do their magic! Just let them know what requires altering, and they'll even give you valuable tips on how you can fully maximise your suits with the help of proper alterations.

What other alteration services can I book through Airtasker?

On our platform, you'll find a wide range of alteration services that can help transform your formal suits and even casual clothes from top to bottom. Alteration specialists can shorten or lengthen school or company uniforms, repair or replace zippers or buttons of your everyday jeans, and create a new lining for your shorts. Let us know what you need, and we'll connect you with someone who can lend a hand!

What do dress alteration services include?

A dress tailor can take on almost any altering request to make sure that your dress fits according to your exact measurements and unique body type. From simple trimming to extensive adjustments, they can take care of the entire process so you won't have to deal with an ill-fitting dress–especially if you're attending or organising an event. Here are some standard alteration services that you can get:

Prom dress alterations

Wearing a perfectly-fitted dress that showcases your figure and best assets is a surefire way to look and feel confident for prom night! But if your prom dress, unfortunately, doesn't fit right, a dress alteration service can be the ultimate lifesaver. Your dress tailor might ask you to put on your dress–with and without your heels on–to know the exact alterations and adjustments needed. Upon request, they can also add beads and other embellishments if you want to do a little restyling or enhancing.

Wedding dress alterations

Planning the perfect wedding takes months–some even years–to guarantee that everything will run smoothly. And on your special day, the last thing you need to worry about is a wedding dress that's either too snug or too loose. At least six weeks before the occasion, consider booking an alteration service to make sure that your wedding dress has the perfect fit from the moment you walk down the aisle until your very last dance.

 

Your tailor can shorten the hem or cut the straps a little if they appear too long. They can also take in our out on the bust, and hips to get you that elegant, sculpted silhouette and make sure that you look amazing in your wedding photos!

Formal dress alteration

Some ball gowns and evening dresses for formal events come with a hefty price tag, so it's natural for you to want to get your money's worth. In case your gown is hugging you a bit tighter than usual, or your cocktail dress feels loose in some parts of your body, a dress alteration service can come in handy. They can also re-strap, re-bead, or even shorten them a little, giving it a completely new design without the expense of a new dress.

Once you have your clothes sorted, you can now fully prepare for your event! We can help you find a hairstylist to do your hair or even a professional artist to take care of your make-up! For the finishing touch, put on your favourite jewellery and high heels, and you are all set!
