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.

Really want something elegant. The detail on the dress is anything sequin but to the ankle and then the arm puffy like the photos. If not able to we can look at something else. I'm like almost a size 24 so it's hard to get something I love or can fit perfectly. The wedding I'm going to is in the 4th October. Just have it done before that weekend.
