Why hire a local 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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!
