Hem 3x pairs pants and shorten one rayon t-shirt

Fitzroy North VIC, Australia
29 Sep 2018

Hi all, I have 3 pairs of pants (jeans or similar fabric) that need taking up to fit my short legs. I want them machine stitched to match the original hem style/colour, rather than hand-stitched. I also have a rayon (ie very stretchy fabric) tshirt which is too long for me, that I’d love to have taken up. I’m not in a rush to have them done, my main concern is price and quality of the work.

Dressmaker needed to shorten dress+take in

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
20 Oct 2018
$50

I am looking for a dressmaker, seamstress or tailor to shorten this dress to just below my knees and take it in a little at the bottom so it hugs my figure rather than flowing out as it is now. I have included photos of the front and back of the dress. The dress is made of 100% polyester with a lining made of 95% polyester and 5% elastane (but no change to the lining needed at all as it is already short and tight) I have a similar dress which has a skirt of the exact style that I’d like this one changed to and I can give it to you to copy the pattern if you like.

Xanthe is fantastic! She is prompt with communication, very nice and professional and cares about doing the job properly. Her studio has all the inner city Melbourne charm you can you can imagine and was very comfortable. I am very happy with the dress she fixed for me and grateful as I know it was a difficult job. Would not hesitate to recommend Xanthe to others or use her again when I need something tailored. Hailey
