What do seamstresses include?

Ready-to-wear clothes don’t always cut it. You may need a dress for a special occasion or an alteration to achieve a perfectly fitting suit. Or perhaps you simply need to repair a broken zip or mend a beloved garment. Whatever type of sewing you need, our platform connects you with nearby sewists who can do the task. Here’s a list of sewing services you can get done on Airtasker.  

Pattern cutting 

Pattern cutting is translating your design onto paper or digital form. The pattern serves as a template for creating wearable clothes. Achieve a bespoke dress that fits you perfectly, or create unique garments for your clothing business. Our platform helps you find local sewists with pattern cutting skills. Once your collection is ready, hire a model to pose in your clothes while a photographer takes amazing product photos for your website. 


You may find clothes you like, but the fit or size just doesn’t work for your body type. Or perhaps you have a dress in mind to wear to an event, but you can’t find it at shops near you. With the help of a dressmaker, you can still get the dress of your dreams. You can have a variety of clothes made, from midi dresses, ball gowns, to business suits.

Clothing repair 

We all have our go-to outfits, and it can be heartbreaking to find a tear or a hole in an irreplaceable piece of clothing. Maybe you bought that shirt abroad, had it custom-made, or splurged on that one expensive dress or jacket. No need to say goodbye to your beloved garment just yet! Instead, find a seamstress or seamster who can fix up your clothes, so they look as good as new. Taskers may even offer to dry-clean your dresses after the repair. 

Clothing alteration 

Some clothes may fit well, except for an awkwardly loose part around the shoulders. Or pants could have a flattering fit but are far too long for your height. With clothing alteration, you no longer have to settle for ill-fitting clothes. A nearby local seamstress can alter your clothes to create custom-fit garments, whether it’s a new suit that needs to be tailored or hand-me-downs that need to be shortened. After your alteration, have a Tasker iron your suit, and you’re good to go for your business event! 

Prom dressmaking 

Prom is an exciting time in a teenagers’ life. Most pretty dresses, though, can leave a big dent in your wallet. With Airtasker, you can look like the belle of the ball at prom with a dress that was made just for you. Please tell us how we can help you achieve your dream dress. Then, wait for offers from experienced sewists who can work with your design, budget, and schedule. Afterwards, find affordable yet professional hair stylists and makeup artists to do your hair and help you achieve the perfect evening look on prom night.

Work your sewing magic to turn my fabric into hooded capes


Auchenflower QLD, Australia

11th Sep 2022

⭐️Price is negotiable - I may need to better understand how much effort this requires ⭐️ Hey there. I have a large volume of velvet/velour fabric to supply, and in anticipation of a late October production, I’m in need of: -5 hooded capes/robes. The characters are members of a dark cult, so the key priority is a big hood, but it doesn’t need to have sleeves or arm holes. - 2 more capes, no hoods. -Given the limited budget, I also won’t expect them to be hemmed at all. I get that. My expectation is for a very low complexity design/execution - the simplest method you can advise of turning flat fabric into the capes/robes. I’ve included some pictures to give you an idea. I have fabric to (and if you need more than what I have; I’ll get it), but nothing else yet. If you need me to provide anything further, please let me know. Otherwise please just BYO haberdashery and reflect it in your quoted price 👍🏻 I can bring you the fabric, or you can pick up from 4066 if that’s better for you. Thanks! - Due date: Flexible

What has made Julie such an incredible partner for this project has been her commitment to what’s best, rather than simply meeting the brief. For that reason, what she has created is far better than what I could have initially imagined/hoped for. Will be commissioning Julie again, for sure.
