Not necessarily. Hire a skilled prom dressmaker who can perform unnoticeable and untraceable alterations. They can conceal a dress alteration by maintaining the original stitch pattern, thread colour, or any other garment detail. There are also sewing techniques like invisible mending, in which a skilled sewer rebuilds the fabric from another part of the same cloth.
Yes, our platform connects you with a range of dressmakers that specialise in other types of dresses. Dressmakers can make or alter dresses for different occasions, be it a graduation ceremony or a wedding. From ball gowns to everyday attire, get any type of clothing made with a Tasker’s help.
Making a prom dress from scratch may take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Lead times depend on the availability and skill of your dressmaker. Furthermore, elaborate prom dresses may take a longer time to sew. Whenever you need your prom dress, we’ll help you find experienced dressmakers who can accommodate your schedule.
We recommend bringing the high heels and undergarments that you plan to wear with your prom dress. By wearing the shoes and undergarments during your fitting, you get a realistic view and feel of your full prom outfit. As a result, you can identify length or fit issues and have your dressmaker make any adjustments.
That’s easy! Simply put up a task for hairstyling and makeup services, and get offers from styling experts near you. Set your budget, then get quotes from hair and makeup Taskers who can help you achieve a glammed up look for prom. You can even ask Taskers to attach photos of their previous work so that you can find a stylist for your desired look.
Keep your prom shoe pick in mind when giving design instructions to your dressmaker. Also, make sure to wear your prom high heels during your dress fitting. Prom heels add height, saving you the trouble of altering a hem and ending up with a dress that’s too short.
Prom dressmaker services making, altering, and repairing prom dresses. Bespoke dressmaking services can make you a prom dress from scratch, inspired by a fashion photo or your very own sketch. Or your dressmaker can handle everything, from designing the clothing down to sewing in the final embellishments.

Whatever prom dress you’re looking for, you’re likely to find a suitable prom dressmaker who can make it for you.
From cocktail dresses to graduation ball gowns, our platform connects you with a variety of dressmaking services. Complete your elegant prom look with a messy bun updo and “no makeup” makeup look with an affordable hair stylist and makeup artist on our platform. A day or two before your prom, you can get your brows shaped, so you’re prom-ready from head to toe!
Altering an existing dress is a cost-efficient alternative to making a dress from scratch. Say, you’d like to wear your mother’s vintage gown, which needs a little restyling or length adjustment. Or you bought a dress online, but the shoulders are too broad, or the neckline reveals too much skin. No worries! Dress alteration experts can fix up these minor issues in no time. They can modify the style, shape, or fit of a dress.
Moreover, they can sew on embellishments to a dress, such as beading and lacing. The perfect prom look deserves a photo op, so you may want to schedule a mini photoshoot before you head off to prom. This way, you’ll have wonderful photos to remind you of this special night.
Have you ripped a seam or broke a zip while trying on your dress? No need to panic! Put up a task on our platform to find available sewers who can deal with your dress dilemma even at short notice. A dressmaker near you may come over and sew up a tear or repair a zip soon enough. If your secondhand dress needs a dry-clean, a Tasker can get that done for you as well.

I am having an 80's party and the theme is Prom Queen but I can not find a dress that I like that is a modern size 14. I'm thinking bright taffeta with puffy shoulders. I would find a pattern and supply material. Dress would be similar to pictures below.
