About this pro
Dressmakers measure customers to get measurements for garments. Once the dressmaker has the customer's measurements, the process of cutting fabric and sewing can begin to assemble the clothing. Dressmakers schedule a fitting for customers to try on the clothing and make notes on alterations. Some dressmakers offer customers alterations on existing garments. A dressmaker may specialize in a type of clothing such as wedding dresses or work with a designer to create clothing from designs.
