    What does a clothing alteration include?

    Your seamstress or tailor is skilled in working with textiles, but especially clothing, to create, repair, and alter clothing. Here are some of the most popular clothing alteration services and what you can expect when you book them:

    Sewing

    Need some custom sewing work to create a design from scratch, or custom-fit to your size? Hire a seamstress or dressmaker to create or customise your dress or garment. They’ll start by measuring your shape and size with a soft tape measure to ensure the perfect fit. They’ll consult with you on designs and fabrics, before choosing or customising a pattern and cutting out the pieces. They’ll sew your garment or dress, taking care to finish off any edges with an overlocking stitch. Most dressmakers will request you to come in for a final fitting where you can try on the (mostly finished) garment and they can make final adjustments.

    Formal wear alterations

    When you want to look your best, it’s so important that your clothing is tailored to perfectly fit. Whether you need bridal alterations, school graduation alterations, corporate wear alterations, or suit alterations, a professional seamstress can help. They’ll take your exact measurements and then ask you to try on the outfit or dress, ideally with the shoes you plan to wear. Then they’ll note or mark up any parts that need taking in or loosening, and where the hem needs to sit based on your shoe height. They’ll use a mixture of machine and hand-sewing techniques to alter your clothing and finalise everything with a final fitting before your event.

    Clothing adjustments

    Most clothing you buy off the rack won’t be the perfect fit, or you might need your favourite clothes adjusted as your body changes shape over time. Book clothing alterations near you to help with dress shortening, garment shortening, and even school uniform alterations for those kids who won’t stop growing. Clothing adjustments usually involve taking seams in or out, and adjusting the hem. Most hems have a few centimetres of extra fabric, so you can add extra length, or take it up for the perfect fit.

    Clothing repairs

    When your favourite dress or pants break, you don’t have to throw them away. Get a professional to take a look and see if they can save your garment with techniques like zipper repair, seam repair, new lining, hole patching, button sewing, and more. Extend the life of your clothing - it’s better for the environment and much more budget-friendly, too.

    Hi there, I’m moving out and there are some tears in the curtains (as pictured) which I am hoping to amend. I’m hoping I can find someone to cut a few inches back, which will hide the tears, then sew/hem straight back up. This will be on 2 curtains. Happy to offer $100 for someone to help with this. Happy to drop curtains off if that’s easiest. They are very old curtains anyway so it doesn’t have to be perfect, just a tidy up would be awesome.

    Cristina got the job done so well, and so fast. No problems whatsoever and would highly recommend for any sewing jobs!! Great communication and no issues whatsoever.

    Cut and sew a Hawaiian shirt from fabric

    $150

    Burwood VIC, Australia

    4th Oct 2019

    My father is a Hawaiian shirt enthusiast and I’ve had a custom Hawaiian design printed on organic cotton. I would like a dressmaker or tailor to create a shirt (short sleeve, button up with collar), which will mean cutting the fabric into the required shapes and stitching it together. I will provide the fabric, the measurements and the buttons. I’ll need you to have a suitable shirt pattern for cutting the fabric, and also to take care in stitching around the seams and button holes so that the shirt is durable. It’s for his 60th birthday so I will need the shirt by next Thursday, 10 October at the latest. I am more concerned about quality than price, so happy to pay more if you have a strong portfolio in dressmaking or tailoring.
