I haven't had any tailoring done by Jayne, but I can speak to other aspects of working with her. She was very prompt, pleasant and clear with her communication, her prices are very reasonable, and she was willing to travel to me! I will absolutely contact her in the future when I next need an alteration.

Arisha was a pleasure to work with. She made an outfit for my daughter who was applying to fashion school and at 15, doesn't sew yet. Arisha finished on time and provided top quality service and is an consummate seamstress. She was quick, worked without a pattern, and priced very reasonably. I would highly recommend hiring her!

Laura was professional, accommodating, and super friendly to work with. She was extremely efficient and very knowledgeable as we looked together for the right fit and material for a blazer, but never hesitated in asking me my own opinion and preference after she gave her recommendation. She was able to custom fit me into a number of my shirts and pants as well. What I appreciate most is her attention to detail and her willingness to go beyond an average job to make her customer feel valued, such as: -visiting a store beforehand and doing prior research to better recommend me -asking me to come in midway through her work to try on my pants/shirts to double check the fit -redoing a pair of pants completely until we were both completely satisfied with the end results. I had a great experience and am very happy with all the items she tailored for me!

We had our bridesmaid dresses altered, since the same dress didn't fit everyone correctly. It was great because Hemster sent a tailor to us to get fitted! Our dresses turned out well.

Yabette was really easy to work with! I had a very straightforward project which took a very reasonable amount of time. She and I met for a 20 minute consultation, she met our agreed upon turn around time and I love the end product.

I am SO glad I found Perfect Fit Design & Alterations. To be a cliche, I've had terrible past experiences with tailors who gave me below-the-value-work w/ suits, suit blazers, dress pants and trench coats (wedding-wear, work-wear or gala-wear). Terri of PFD&A provides quality work. If I may need intricate tailoring, she is my first choice to hire. Also, I wanna note that on Thumbtack, this platform elicits businesses to provide an instant quotation. With tailoring, it's not that simple: One can't just get an instant quotation about an article of clothing with a specific tailoring job based on just describing it. A tailor needs to physically see the actual article of clothing, to make an assessment. If you need to know more, just ask questions; get to the point. Terri is great answering back. I took in a coat to have it less looking boxy; she did a fantastic job. I am contemplating now on hiring her again to see if she can fix previous tailor's shortcomings. Thank you, Terri. I recommended you to my friends. Hope you hear from them.

Ms. Sharifa responded to my search for an expert seamstress/tailor to teach me sewing and embellishing techniques. I can’t quite express the extent of her graciousness and professionalism because you will have to meet her to see for yourself. She is reliable and punctual for all appointments. When we sew, she is kind and patient with my learning curve. Conversation is never idle but at the same time, not too much. I have observed her talent with designing and tailoring beautiful hand beaded gowns and suits. Her work is truly superb with a focus on high quality materials and meticulous workmanship. I highly recommend!

I had chosen to ask Sandhya to help me design beautiful brocade fabrics I had purchased into kurtas and also transform a lengha I had into an anarkali suit on my behalf for me. I had known Sandhya through friend for a few years, and I had held Sandhya's fashion design sense in high regard after having seen some stunning pieces she had made for our mutual friend. I remember being blown away at the time by the quality of her work. I find Sandhya to have a colorful, vibrant, timeless, classy and a joyful style sense. I particularly love and connect to her appreciation of blending fabrics, textures and prints to create dynamic garments. Because she's experienced in fashion design, comes from a family experienced in fashion design, and had recently completed her degree in fashion, these credentials made it that much more easier to trust she would deliver high quality clothing! When I met with Sandhya to set expectations around the garments I wanted her to design, I ended up having a whimsical evening with working with her to my surprise. It was a really exciting experience discussing what I wanted to have made and sharing photographs of designs I love. She took very thorough notes and communicated with me often along with photos as she worked through the designs herself. Surprisingly, I received nearly 80% of the garments I had requested relatively quickly. I've so far received everything but the anarkali suit, and I've already started to set aside 2-3 more fashion design projects I want to work with her on. Sandhya has a wide set of skills and interests including Western clothing, clutches & jewelry too. After seeing a preview of the jewelry she's both curated and custom designed I've already decided to move forward purchasing 3 sets of earrings from her too! I trust I will enjoy the pieces I've had made and the jewelry I will be purchasing for decades. For anyone else who comes from having had personal experience tailoring and designing garments with experienced tailors, etc., it's a breath of fresh air to work with someone here in the States who understands both Western and Indian fashion itself! I also think for anyone who has never had any garments tailored before, but have a love for fashion to definitely work with Sandhya because they'll be in good hands if they do!

Great experience. My boyfriends struggled with his style and buying clothes for a long time. and we discovered we've been buying him the wrong sizes too. It's great understanding what to expect from clothes, now that we know what to look for, how and where to get the right fit. Incredible tailoring services too. Not just suits, but jeans and tees are fitting perfect. Love it!

I was looking for someone to tailor fit a few dress shirts and pants, mostly slimming down and shortening. Lynne was very approachable and easy to work with. I was able to meet with her within a week of posting my project. She was very courteous in measuring each item that I brought in and would check with me on how I liked the new fit. She has been in this industry for a very long time and does everything she can to ensure that the customer is happy. Her prices are very reasonable and had a quick turnaround time. I would highly recommend her for alterations and any of the other services they offer. Thanks Lynne!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What do seamstresses do?

      Seamstresses provide tailoring, alteration and custom sewing for clothing or costumes. Seamstresses can reshape clothing that is too big or too small so that it fits properly — for example, hemming pants that are too long or bringing in the waistband of pants or a skirt that is too large. Seamstresses can also provide more complex alterations such as adding tucks to shape a dress or bringing in the body of a shirt. More time and expertise will be required for challenging fabric such as silk or clothing with lining, like a blazer or lined slacks. Seamstresses are also skilled in altering wedding dresses and other formal wear. The time and skill required for these types of alterations is greater than for basic tasks like hemming, so be sure to find an experienced seamstress to handle your special items.

      Many seamstresses can also custom-make clothing for you. To come up with the design, you can bring in a pattern you like or an item of clothing you want the seamstress to replicate, or ask the seamstress to create a pattern for you. You can bring your own unique design to life with the help of a seamstress. There is no formal job training required to be a seamstress; many learn to sew and design from practical experience. For larger projects, like tailoring a suit, always be sure to review portfolios of work and read about the seamstress’s experience before committing.

      Are you supposed to tip a seamstress?

      Tipping seamstresses is not standard protocol. That said, anytime a talented seamstress goes above and beyond, offering a gratuity is a thoughtful gesture. A gratuity might be appropriate if the seamstress accepted a large project for you at the last minute — for example, hemming new suit pants the night before your work trip or taking in your party dress the day before your birthday. A gratuity may also be appropriate as recognition for the long hours of skilled stitching that your seamstress has put in altering your wedding dress, which often requires multiple fittings and precise fixes to make your dress perfect. If you do decide to offer a gratuity, first ask if the seamstress accepts gratuities; if they do, offer them an additional 15 percent to 20 percent of the total bill.  

      How much do seamstresses charge?

      The price for seamstress services will vary depending on the type of work you have done. The national average rate for a seamstress or tailor is $150-$280. Simple projects like repairing holes and hemming jeans usually have flat rates; larger projects, such as sewing custom creations, altering suits or altering wedding dresses, are typically priced based on the specifics of the fabric and pattern and the amount of work time needed. Here are a few examples of tailor and seamstress average costs:

      • Shorten sleeves of a dress shirt: $19.
      • Shorten jacket sleeves: $23 (without buttons) to $28 (with buttons).
      • Take in the body of a jacket: $40 (two seams) to $52 (three seams).
      • Take in a dress shirt: $20.
      • Adjust the shoulders of a jacket: $35.
      • Hem a skirt or dress: $10-$14.
      • Take in or let out a skirt or pair of pants: $15 (unlined) to $20 (lined) or $25 (with a zipper).
      • Shorten top-stitched pants: $10.
      • Shorten cuffed pants: $14.
      • Shorten lined pants: $14.
      • Shorten lined and cuffed pants: $18.
      • Take in a sheath dress: $45.
      • Restitch a fraying seam: $5.
      • Replace buttons: 50 cents each.
      • Move a button: $2.
      • Add a hook and eye: 50 cents per set.
