Top Dressmakers related questions

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.  

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dress repair
