Suggested reads about Tailors

What does a tailor do?

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!

I purchased 100 T-Shirts from a manufacturer, and they unfortunately did not finish off the threads correctly so they have loose threads that are unraveling in different places after being in the washing machine. Im looking for someone who has basic sewing experience and a sewing machine to quickly go over just the ends of the thread paths to reinforce so they do not unravel. I have about 95 of the brand new in-bag T-Shirts (in 5 colours) that need to be done to avoid this unavoidable unraveling. As long as the tread ends are secure I am happy, doesnt have to be super clean. Let me know what price you are looking for in order to do this. - Due date: Flexible
