What do seamstress services include?

Ready-to-wear clothes don’t always cut it. You may need a dress for a special occasion or an alteration to achieve a perfectly fitting suit. Or perhaps you simply need to repair a broken zip or mend a beloved garment. Whatever type of sewing you need, our platform connects you with nearby sewists who can do the task. Here’s a list of sewing services you can get done on Airtasker. 


Pattern cutting 

Pattern cutting is translating your design onto paper or digital form. The pattern serves as a template for creating wearable clothes. Achieve a bespoke dress that fits you perfectly, or create unique garments for your clothing business. Our platform helps you find local sewists with pattern cutting skills. Once your collection is ready, hire a model to pose in your clothes while a photographer takes amazing product photos for your website.



You may find clothes you like, but the fit or size just doesn’t work for your body type. Or perhaps you have a dress in mind to wear to an event, but you can’t find it at shops near you. With the help of a dressmaker, you can still get the dress of your dreams. You can have a variety of clothes made, from midi dresses, ball gowns, to business suits.


Clothing repair 

We all have our go-to outfits, and it can be heartbreaking to find a tear or a hole in an irreplaceable piece of clothing. Maybe you bought that shirt abroad, had it custom-made, or splurged on that one expensive dress or jacket. No need to say goodbye to your beloved garment just yet! Instead, find a seamstress or seamster who can fix up your clothes, so they look as good as new. Taskers may even offer to dry-clean your dresses after the repair. 


Clothing alteration 

Some clothes may fit well, except for an awkwardly loose part around the shoulders. Or pants could have a flattering fit but are far too long for your height. With clothing alteration, you no longer have to settle for ill-fitting clothes. A nearby local seamstress can alter your clothes to create custom-fit garments, whether it’s a new suit that needs to be tailored or hand-me-downs that need to be shortened. After your alteration, have a Tasker iron your suit, and you’re good to go for your business event! 


Prom dressmaking 

Prom is an exciting time in a teenagers’ life. Most pretty dresses, though, can leave a big dent in your wallet. With Airtasker, you can look like the belle of the ball at prom with a dress that was made just for you. Please tell us how we can help you achieve your dream dress. Then, wait for offers from experienced sewists who can work with your design, budget, and schedule. Afterwards, find affordable yet professional hair stylists and makeup artists to do your hair and help you achieve the perfect evening look on prom night.

I need seamstress services


Marrickville New South Wales 2204, Australia

11th Apr 2021

Dear Seamstress, I hope you have had a lovely week so far. I’m enquiring about getting a seamstress that would be interested in assisting us in making some Ancient Greek Togan garments for a Community Film Production. The seamstress is to start work immediately in order to meet the following timelines; 23th of April : Male Character 24th of April: Young Boy and Girl Characters 26th of April: Old Women Character Firstly, I would need a quote. I have finished the design for the mens garment and I have attached detailed drawings of the designs. I will attach the other designs of the children and the Old Women shortly. The inspiration for the design is Aeon Flux Movie. 3 other garments are already done, so this new garments will consist of: Material texture of two layers instead of 3 layers. Back of the garment is designed the same except that the top section is fitted The length of the skirt needs to be made into a male version (skilt) in between the ankle joint and the knee (in the centre of the calf) to show off the sandals. The hoodie would be bigger and more gathered at the front of the garment I would like the Costume Design to be inline with the illustration that I attached of the Male Character in a skilt and added trimmings that I will purchase on the shoulders, mid part of the arms, strips running underneath the garment and trimmings on the end of the skilt. I will show you samples of the materials that I have selected to match the illustration of the garment. The garment will be made up of two layers of sheer organza or (chrinkled polyester chiffon) material layered over the top of sashes of material underneath the swen top of either shoulders of the garment. The design of the garment will have vertical panels of material on the first layer closer to the skin which will only be at the front of the garment. The back of the garment will only have the trimmings and the shape of the layers of organza material or (chrinkled polyester chiffon) at the back of the design to keep it simple. The Organza material for the main part of the garment is made into two layers with dark gold material for the underneath layer and shimmery gold material on the outer layer of the garment. To make the garment fitted at the top we will need a zipper on the left hand side that will be required. I need a skilt that will be from the waist belt to midway between the knee and the ankle joint that as two layers with the first layer being the darkest layer and the second layer being the a shimmery layer and there will be a part in the bottom of the skilt on the left hand side. There will be aqua trimming on the (shoulders that need to be broader and pointy), cuffs around the midline of the arm, and trimmings on the bottom of the skilt. I will purchase a brown, gold and silver belt to break the top of the garment up with the skilt. The belt will be purchased to match the sandals that will strap up to the middle of the calf muscle. It is for a Community Production Film and I will send you through more information if required. Please let me know if you are interested and please provide a quote for the dress making. Kind Regards, Ali McGuigan

Hand Sewing Reusable Pads Demo Kit


Sydney NSW, Australia

3rd Dec 2020

I need six re-usable menstrual pads hand sewn from recycled materials, each a slightly different design - see photos attached. Most patterns are easily sourced from the internet. No fancy materials needed. Slight adaptations so all models can be sewn by hand using easily sourced materials (Buttons and ties, not snaps, for example). Upon review of this task, a second task is available - reproducing each design six times. This is for a project working with women in low resource areas with no sewing machines, so using recycled material from second hand clothes is possible. No fancy trims etc.

Wonderful to work with Kim. He is very professional and has done an amazing job on an unusual project.
