Why hire a tailor through Airtasker?

Tailoring your clothes is a great investment. A well-fitting shirt or suit can spell the difference between drab or fab and give you the confidence boost that you need. But, going to a tailor shop or searching for tailors & alterations near your house can be time-consuming. And that’s before you go through measuring and fitting! But with Airtasker, finding and booking a tailor in your area takes only a few minutes.

When you request a tailor on our platform, you get to specify the location for your appointment. No need to go to a shop after work or on the weekend! Just have a Tasker drop by your home or office. You also get to specify the details of the task and your budget - this way, you avoid any overpriced fees, and you only pay for what you need.

And even before you commit to any tailor, you get to canvass their rates and customer reviews, so you’re sure to book the best fit. Ready to book a highly-rated tailor near you? Select the “Post a task” button to get started!

Top Tailors related questions

How do I tailor jeans?

First, turn the pants inside-out and try them on. Use tailor’s chalk and pins to mark how much fabric you want to take in. Sew on top of the original seam then gradually turn the stitch towards your marks. Then, try on the jeans, cut the seam allowance, and zigzag the edges, so they don’t fray. If the jeans gape at the waistband, pinch the fabric, pin it into place, and stitch two darts on top of your back pockets.

Can you tailor a coat?

It depends on what you want to be tailored. If you want to let the hems down or shorten the coat or sleeves, your tailor can usually do that for you. But, your local tailor can’t change anything around the shoulders. If a coat has gotten too tight around your shoulders, it’s best to trade it in for a new one.

What can a tailor not alter?

Tailors can’t:

  • Take more than 5 centimetres out of your jeans’ centre seam

  • Make a garment one size larger or two sizes smaller

  • Adjust shoulder pads or structure in a jacket or coat

  • Change the button profile or lapels of a jacket

  • Let out the seams or hems of garments made from silk, linen, or cotton

Where can I find a tailor near me?

You can book a rated & reviewed tailor right here on Airtasker! To start:

  1. Tap the “Post a task” button and fill out the form.

  2. Don’t forget to include the details of the garment you want to alter or create.

  3. Indicate your location and budget as well.

  4. Tap “Get quotes” and wait for offers from nearby Taskers.

  5. Review their quotes as well as their customer ratings.

  6. Once you find a Tasker you like, tap to confirm your appointment.

What should I ask my tailor?

When you first meet with your tailor, you can ask to see their previous pieces. Then, you can ask if the proposed cut, style, and cloth will meet your aesthetic and practical needs. Don’t forget to ask your tailor for a timeline, especially if you’re preparing for a wedding. You’ll also want to make sure that there is enough time for fittings, and that your tailor knows whether you’re at a steady weight or are currently dieting.

How long do alterations take?

Alterations can take anywhere from 3 days to a whole week, depending on how busy your tailor is. If you’re rushing to get ready for a special occasion (say, a wedding or an office party), you might want to consider booking Taskers to help you out with events. While you might not be able to rush a highly-rated, in-demand tailor, you can spend time managing the other to-dos of your event. 

What does a tailoring service include?

This service covers tailoring, alterations, and sometimes even repair for different kinds of garments. This includes men’s suits, women’s coats, trousers, dresses, and even down jackets. In the case of made-to-measure and bespoke tailoring, your wardrobe will show off your personality and fit your lifestyle in a way that off-the-rack can’t match.

 

And when you book your clothes tailor on our platform, you get some great added perks, such as picking a reviewed and rated tailor in your area, having a tailor go to your home or office, and working within your budget! Do note that some details may vary depending on the tailor you hire, so make sure that your task post is as detailed as possible. 

 

Alteration tailor near you

Most tailoring work includes altering a garment to fit you better. If you plan to get an off-the-rack item and take it to tailoring services near you, it’s best to choose a size that fits the widest point of your body. From there, your local tailor will take in or cinch the rest of the item. Tailors can also make sleeves or pant legs slimmer, adjust the straps and bust darts of a dress, shorten the sleeves of a shirt, add the lining, and add buttons or hook-and-eye clasps. 

 

On the other hand, a tailor cannot make a garment bigger or longer. They also can’t fix a bad shoulder fit on a jacket or coat. Also, it is inadvisable to let out the stitches in fabrics like linen, cotton, and silk, since holes will show. 

 

Clothing repair

Most local tailors near you can also repair clothing. This can mean fixing a zipper, stopping a hem from fraying, repairing a rip, or reweaving a hole. When you book a clothing tailor near you to repair your item, they’ll tell you if the item can still be repaired, and what the risks (and cost) of the repair would be. They can also offer advice on how to better care for your clothing or avoid further damage, such as using a mesh bag in the laundry for your more delicate items or getting your clothes dry-cleaned instead.

 

Made-to-measure and bespoke tailoring

Tailoring or altering your off-the-rack garment is a fast and affordable way to make clothes fit you better. But if you want your wardrobe to fit you to a T, made-to-measure or bespoke tailoring is the way to go. While these services are offered at tailor shops near you, Airtasker lets you book a bespoke tailor who can go to your home or office. 

 

Your Tasker brings the supplies, takes your measurements and requests (or in the case of made-to-measure, lets you choose a pattern), and assists you with the fittings! This service saves time while still making sure you look stunning at that upcoming event - skilled Taskers can help you with planning for the big day as well!

Seamstress or tailor

Rose Bay NSW 2029, Australia

13th Dec 2020

I have about 25 dresses which need to be redeem along one seam which is 40cm long on each dress. They will be unpicked, folded and ironed flat ready to sew. It’s a simple 40cm long seam line. The priority is you MUST be able to sew in a perfectly straight line... PERFECTLY straight line. The current stitching is jagged and wonky and they need to be redone. This is urgent. I have a new sewing machine at my home and have the correct colour thread. There are 4 different colour dresses. The job needs to be done in my home in Rose Bay with my machine. This is an urgent job which is why it needs to be done at my place unless you live very close by me and have your own machine. But I need to see your work. If you cannot sew a straight line, you cannot do the job. So please ONLY apply if you can sew neatly and cleanly. I can send you photos of what the job is. But it’s the same with every single dress and once machine threaded and spooled, should not take longer than 5 minutes per garment. I need someone ASAP. Tonight is possible or tomorrow morning. I’m paying $40 an hour.

Excellent work. Will continue to use Kim for all my alterations and repairs. Thanks Kim 🙏🏻

Suit Jacket sleeves need to be taken up slightly Trousers need to be hemmed and have the waist let out a touch Need done by Friday. Price negotiable

Tailoring 5/5 Customer service 2/5 Communication skills 1/5 I’ll preface this by saying that she does good work. Here is my review. There was some kind of issue with her machine from earlier in the day which had stopped her getting my suit back on time. Now this would have been fine, but she only gave me 3 minutes notice and asked to come the following morning. We’d initially agreed on 5pm, then 6:45pm. She ended up arriving at 8 She wasn’t able to communicate to me why she was having an issue (with her machine) so it just came across like she was totally disorganised. I accept that some of this was outside her hands, but her communication skills really let things down. She ended up needing to fit me for a jacket twice because the stitching came undone on the sleeve as I was trying it on. She went out of her way to fix the issue and brought it back to me by 7am the next morning. The whole issue could have been avoided had she just let me know in advance what was going on.
