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.

Chesterfield Lounge Reupholstering

$1,000

Sydney NSW, Australia

19th Jan 2021

We have 6 or 7 chesterfield lounges that are in desperate need of some love. It's not worth the money to get them reupholstered with leather, so we're looking for someone who's quite crafty that can come in and patch them up. They are in the common room of a backpackers hostel, so quirkiness is encouraged!

Hand Sewing Reusable Pads Demo Kit

$300

Sydney NSW, Australia

3rd Dec 2020

I need six re-usable menstrual pads hand sewn from recycled materials, each a slightly different design - see photos attached. Most patterns are easily sourced from the internet. No fancy materials needed. Slight adaptations so all models can be sewn by hand using easily sourced materials (Buttons and ties, not snaps, for example). Upon review of this task, a second task is available - reproducing each design six times. This is for a project working with women in low resource areas with no sewing machines, so using recycled material from second hand clothes is possible. No fancy trims etc.

Wonderful to work with Kim. He is very professional and has done an amazing job on an unusual project.

Make a bench seat cushion cover

$5

Bondi NSW 2026, Australia

8th Jan 2021

We have a day bed and I would like a cover for the mattress. A large bench seat cover essentially. I would like it in white durable material. Zip at the back so it can be taken off for washing. Machine washable. Measurements are Length 1800mm Depth 700mm Height 120mm

Kim is fantastic. He did an exquisite job with great attention to detail. He clearly has great talent. He was a pleasure to communicate with, completed the task so quickly and also was kind enough to deliver the item to me himself. He offered to make any alterations if needed but none were it was perfect! I definitely recommend Kim and am now thinking of what other sewing projects I can request of him.

Dress making, skirt making, seamstress

$150

Sydney NSW Australia

17th Jan 2021

I need help to make a skirt for my first dance. The first part of the dance is a waltz, I need a wrap skirt for this. The second part is salsa, so I would like to take this wrap skirt off and reveal the salsa skirt underneath. The skirt need to be able to hide the salsa skirt. A simple material that would allow the skirt to twirl when I turn is good enough. The waltz skirt I can find online are not wrap skirts. My fiance will untie the skirt and I will turn to unravel the skirt. I would love to have this a bit bigger so it doesnt look bulking over the salsa skirt underneath. Please see attached photos. What I have in mind is a white wrap skirt. The below youtube video is an example of how the bride wore a white skirt and took it off, however I would love mine tied so my fiance can loosen it when the second song comes on. https://youtu.be/x2z01lhXbaw
