Top Dressmakers related questions

How is dressmaking different from tailoring?

Both dressmakers and tailors do the cutting, sewing, mending, and clothing alterations. While dressmakers work with women’s clothing, tailors work only with menswear, such as suits, coats, and jackets. You should hire a dressmaker if you need help making or mending a dress, blouse, gown, or other womenswear.  

What’s the difference between a dressmaker and a seamstress?

A dressmaker specialises in dressmaking, which requires a higher level of skill than a seamstress. On the other hand, a seamstress is a “jack of all trades” whose main task is to sew garments together.

Should I provide the fabric and trimmings for my dressmaker?

Not necessarily. You can either provide the dressmaking materials or have a dressmaker supply them for you. Dressmakers can work with an existing garment or fabric you provide. Otherwise, dressmakers can handle every step of the process, from sourcing fabrics to creating the final piece.

How long will dressmaking take?

Lead times for dressmaking depends on the type of garment. As a rule of thumb, expect dressmaking to take 4-6 weeks. More complicated projects like bridal gowns may take up to 3 months to make. If you need a dressmaker to get something done quicker, feel free to put up a task on our platform. You may find an available dressmaker who can accommodate your request.

How does the bespoke dressmaking process go?

Bespoke dressmaking usually starts with a consultation with the dressmaker via phone, online communication, or face-to-face conversation. The dressmaker then sketches up the design. Once you have approved the design and final rate, the dressmaker takes your measurements and makes a mock-up of the garment for you to try on. After the final measurements, the dressmaker makes the actual garment. The bespoke dressmaking process may vary from Tasker to Tasker.

What is the benefit of dressmaking?

Dressmaking provides clothing custom-fitted to your form, ideal material and design preference. Moreover, dressmaking allows you to get the fit just right, as this service offers non-standard sizes for the tall, petite, or fuller figure.

What do dressmaker services include?

Dressmakers make or alter all types of womenswear, from everyday trousers to outfits for special occasions. A dressmaker usually specialises in dresses, such as summer dresses, prom dresses, and bridal gowns. Some dressmakers also work on menswear and childrenswear.  

Our platform connects you with custom dressmaking, dress alterations, and clothing repair services. Dressmakers can assist you with the following tasks. 

Bespoke dressmaking 

Recreate a favourite dress you no longer have or have a bespoke dress perfect for your shape and style. Dressmakers can sketch up an original design for you, or take inspiration from a photograph or existing garment. 

Dressmakers can make bespoke pieces, such as skirts, summer dresses, ball gowns, and costumes. If you’re looking for unique t-shirts to sell or to give as gifts to family, you can also hire a Tasker to print your designs onto t-shirts

Dress alteration 

Dress alteration ensures your clothes look and fit just the way you like it. A dressmaker can sew sleeves onto a maxi dress, tighten a dress around the waist, put a zip onto a dress, or adjust the length of your trousers. Have you found your dream prom dress online but the bust is a little too showy? No problem! Your seamstress can fix that up for you as well, by shortening the straps or stitching in between to close the gap. You can even have your gown dry cleaned before your special event. Our platform lets you get anything done! 

Wedding dress alteration 

If you need a last-minute wedding dress or bridal wear alterations, Airtasker is here to help! Put up a task to find nearby dressmakers who can alter your dress even at short notice. Whether you have a wedding dress that doesn’t fit quite right or a vintage wedding dress that needs a bit of restyling, Taskers can help you out.  

Our platform connects you with dressmakers who work with made to measure wedding dresses, mother of the bride outfits, and bridesmaid dresses. We’ll even help you find experts who can plan your wedding, prepare the wedding menu, and photograph your beautiful wedding day

Dress repair 

Book same-day clothing repair for your outfit emergency, or fix up a favourite shirt you haven’t worn in a while. Dressmakers can repair any clothing issue, from fixing holes in trousers to replacing broken zips. Taskers can also stitch up the lining of a dress or sew buttons onto a polo shirt. 

Sewing lessons

Airtasker helps you find sewing experts who can share their expertise and teach you basic sewing skills. If you have the time for and interest in sewing, you can find affordable sewing lessons via our platform. Your Tasker can either meet with you in person for sewing lessons or guide you through phone or online consultation.

I have an op shop dress that I have worn so much it is wearing out. I want another dress exactly the same and I have some denim fabric for it. I can send photos of the dress and my fabric. Probably best for me to come to the dressmaker's house so I can bring the dress and fabric. I'm in no hurry for it. If the dressmaker does a great job and is reasonably priced I will use them again given I have many vintage pieces I will want to recreate in the future.

I have an old dress I adore but have worn to death. It’s a halter neckline and side zip. Looking for 2 copies but very happy to discuss alterations in the set up if easier. The dress is a maxi with a lining. I’d also appreciate assistance in choosing fabric. I would like this done without destroying the original. If it’s possible to add pockets that would be even better! Ideally I’d love to be involved with fitting etc as it could do with being slightly bigger and I’d really enjoy seeing some of the process!

So wonderful! Would recommend. So accommodating. Very happy with the finished products.

All the fabric, buttons, tags will be provided. It’s just the cutting of the fabric and stitching that I need completed. So you’d need a sewing machine! I’m looking for someone who can complete this to a professional level I.e. preferably you’re a dress maker and or a tailor. If not you have been sewing/ creating clothes for a few years. You can do this from home! Ideally I’m looking for someone local to south east qld so I can easily drop off the materials & pick them up afterwards. I’m not sure on how many hours it will take, Send me a message for more details :)
