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.

Cutting laminate squares - sticking velcro on each

$400

St. Ives NSW, Australia

19th Jan 2021

I have 400 x A4 already laminated pages with between 1 and 28 squares on them that need cutting out. Each square is 2.5cm x 2.5cm. Velcro then needs to be cut from a roll and stuck on the back of each one. The squares need to be kept in their sections (the section is printed at the top of each page) with post it notes. I will provide the velcro and dividers in a box and extra strong scissors. But if you have a paper cutter / trimmer that would probably be handy and make the task quicker! I estimate the task could take anywhere between 12 and 16 hours. You can come and pick up the materials and sheets anytime tomorrow (20/1) or Thursday (21/1). The only time I'm unavailable on those days is between 10am to 1pm. After that, I won't be available. But I am happy for you to complete the task in your own home. There is also the option of picking up / dropping the materials in the City from my husband's work. I ideally need the task to be completed by Thursday 28th January, but may be able to stretch to Sunday 31st January if someone is efficient and professional and can absolutely confirm that the task will be completed in full.

Fab is fabulous - efficient and timely and really completed the task to an excellent standard!

Pattern maker/dress maker

$200

Lane Cove West NSW, Australia

16th Jan 2021

I’m in need of someone who can create and bring designs into life based on sketches. This person needs to be able to make patterns and sew on a professional level. You don’t need to have the sewing machine necessarily as I have an industrial and top notch sewing machine myself. At the moment this job is on a casual basis but if everything goes well, there is the possibility of on going work in the future with better pay. The price is for one piece of clothing and there is at least about 10 designs that need to be done so $200 x 10. There could be more than 10 designs as well. Please only apply if you can do complicated design pattern making and sewing in a clean professional manner. There is currently no set deadline for this task.

Lola was great and professional in helping create my first design and brining my vision to reality. I would definitely recommend her.
