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.

Suit Jacket sleeves need to be taken up slightly Trousers need to be hemmed and have the waist let out a touch Need done by Friday. Price negotiable

Tailoring 5/5 Customer service 2/5 Communication skills 1/5 I’ll preface this by saying that she does good work. Here is my review. There was some kind of issue with her machine from earlier in the day which had stopped her getting my suit back on time. Now this would have been fine, but she only gave me 3 minutes notice and asked to come the following morning. We’d initially agreed on 5pm, then 6:45pm. She ended up arriving at 8 She wasn’t able to communicate to me why she was having an issue (with her machine) so it just came across like she was totally disorganised. I accept that some of this was outside her hands, but her communication skills really let things down. She ended up needing to fit me for a jacket twice because the stitching came undone on the sleeve as I was trying it on. She went out of her way to fix the issue and brought it back to me by 7am the next morning. The whole issue could have been avoided had she just let me know in advance what was going on.
