Tailoring a woman’s shirt involves narrowing the shoulders, adding darts, and narrowing the bodice and sleeves. If you’re doing this by yourself, it can be very tricky since you’ll need to mark and measure things while wearing them. If you’d like to alter a shirt to fit you better, we recommend booking a women’s tailor instead. Some Taskers might be able to accommodate you ASAP - this is great for when you’re rushing to an event or party.
Yes, they can. Besides working on trousers and suits, our Taskers can also add sleeves to a dress. They can also adjust existing sleeves to make them slimmer, or modify the sleeve length for a more practical fit. If you’re adjusting a dress in time for an event, you can also have a Tasker help you with other to-dos, such as catering or gift delivery.
This depends on what you want your tailor to do. Basic alterations can take 3-5 days, depending on your tailor’s workload (or if they offer rush services for an extra fee). Made-to-measure and bespoke tailoring can take three weeks or longer, depending on the number of fittings you’ll have. Of course, made-to-measure processes tend to go slightly faster, since your tailor will be using a pre-existing garment pattern.

What does a women’s tailoring service include?
Women’s tailoring includes pretty much the same things you’d expect at any other tailor - alterations for off-the-rack items, made-to-measure patterns you can choose from, and bespoke tailoring that will make you look your best.
The great thing about booking a women’s tailor via Airtasker is that you can find a trusted, value-for-money tailor in minutes. Plus, you won’t need to go to a shop, since your tailor can head to your location. While there may be slight variations depending on the Tasker you’re working with, here’s what you can generally expect from our women’s tailoring service:
Whether you need your off-the-rack pants to be taken in, or you want to let out some old seams, your tailor can get it done. If you just went dress-shopping days before the event and just found out that it’s a bit too long, no worries!
Just book a women’s tailor to drop by your home or office and shorten the hem. Just remember to bring your chosen party shoes so that your Tasker can get the hem just right.
Shortening the hem of your dresses or jeans
Maximising the length of your trousers
Shortening the straps of your dress
Fix the bust darts on a dress or top to make it fit better
Changing garment linings
Adding a hook-and-eye fastening for button-down shirts
Note that there are things your tailor can’t do, either. These include taking seams out of linen, cotton, or silk, fixing an item that’s too small, lengthening a jacket, and fixing a lousy shoulder fit.
When in doubt, make sure the item fits the widest point of your body, then ask your tailor to take in the rest. Or, you can opt for made-to-measure or bespoke pieces, such as tailored women’s suits.
Women’s tailors can also do repair work on clothing items like trousers, suits, and bridal wear. This includes wonky zippers and to an extent, holes in your garments. It helps to be as detailed as possible in your task post so that the Taskers who offer can be certain that they will be able to fix your garment.
Made-to-measure women’s clothing
Made-to-measure garments make use of an already-existing pattern. Your women’s tailor then modifies it to fit your body measurements. It’s a bit more personalised than off-the-rack but is usually more affordable than bespoke clothing.
Bespoke is the height of women’s tailoring. When you get a tailored women’s coat or suit, your Tasker will work with you to make sure that you get the best cut, fit, and fabric for that item. This can include measuring the little details such as the slope of your back, and looking into how you intend to wear that item (e.g. for a party, a summer outing, a new suit for spring).
