Top Dressmakers related questions

Both dressmakers and tailors do the cutting, sewing, mending, and clothing alterations. While dressmakers work with women’s clothing, tailors work only with menswear, such as suits, coats, and jackets. You should hire a dressmaker if you need help making or mending a dress, blouse, gown, or other womenswear.  

A dressmaker specialises in dressmaking, which requires a higher level of skill than a seamstress. On the other hand, a seamstress is a “jack of all trades” whose main task is to sew garments together.

Not necessarily. You can either provide the dressmaking materials or have a dressmaker supply them for you. Dressmakers can work with an existing garment or fabric you provide. Otherwise, dressmakers can handle every step of the process, from sourcing fabrics to creating the final piece.

Lead times for dressmaking depends on the type of garment. As a rule of thumb, expect dressmaking to take 4-6 weeks. More complicated projects like bridal gowns may take up to 3 months to make. If you need a dressmaker to get something done quicker, feel free to put up a task on our platform. You may find an available dressmaker who can accommodate your request.

Bespoke dressmaking usually starts with a consultation with the dressmaker via phone, online communication, or face-to-face conversation. The dressmaker then sketches up the design. Once you have approved the design and final rate, the dressmaker takes your measurements and makes a mock-up of the garment for you to try on. After the final measurements, the dressmaker makes the actual garment. The bespoke dressmaking process may vary from Tasker to Tasker.

Dressmaking provides clothing custom-fitted to your form, ideal material and design preference. Moreover, dressmaking allows you to get the fit just right, as this service offers non-standard sizes for the tall, petite, or fuller figure.
