Suggested reads about Clothing Repair

What do clothing repair services include?

You don’t have to give up a favourite shirt or dress just because of a hole, rip, or fit issue. Instead, have a local clothing repair expert fix or alter your garment. A clothing repair expert can have a look at your item and repair it using various sewing techniques. Here are different ways sewers can improve your old or damaged clothing. 


Garment repair

Repairing a garment can involve sewing a seam, button, or new lining onto the fabric. Whether your jumper has suffered wear and tear, or your vest has some moth holes, a Tasker may be able to repair it. If you have a garment you’d still love to wear, avail a nearby clothing repair expert today. Taskers may also hand-wash or dry-clean the clothes for you, so they look like you just bought them from the store. 


Clothing alterations 

Your clothing preferences or body shape may change over time. Clothing alteration ensures your clothes match your ever-changing needs. Sewing experts offer all kinds of alterations, from shortening a dress to altering school uniforms for your growing kids. Other examples of clothing alteration include tightening a skirt around the waist and taking seams in or out. Request for any type of clothing alteration, and connect with Taskers who can get it done. 


Zipper repair and replacement 

Zipper experts can partially or fully repair a zip on a jacket, dress, bag, and leather pieces, among other items. For minor zip damage, a specialist can simply fix the zipper slider or stop. Or if the entire zip is broken, you can have it replaced with a similar zipper. Find zipper repair and replacement services in minutes by putting up a task on our platform. 


Invisible mending 

Invisible mending is a creative way to fix up a snag, burn, or accidental scissor cut on a garment or piece of upholstery. This sewing method involves rebuilding a cloth using a part of the same fabric. Search for skilled sewers near you by putting up a task for this complicated clothing repair method. Airtasker connects you with rated and reviewed experts for any sewing task you need doing.  


Embroidery for clothing repair 

Embroidery can turn a clothing tragedy into a beautiful work of art. A sewing expert can mend any type of fabric damage, whether it’s a hole in your favourite jumper or a stain on your go-to party dress. As no two holes are the same, clothing repair by embroidery can bring you impressive results.

Tingalpa QLD, Australia

I have two clothing repair jobs... 1. Replace the elastic straps in the back of the vest. It actually doesn't need to be elastic. It could be just material but I do want the little button loop ends put back on. 2. Replace the lining in this vintage woollen sequined top. There are a few small holes in it that would also be great to mend but not 100% necessary. Price is definitely negotiable and would pay for materials or provide materials upon advice. Would prefer someone Brisbane south-east (I'm in Tingalpa) and would drop off and collect to you. - Due date: Flexible

Angela was fantastic and the work she did was 5 star especially in giving a second life to my vintage top.
