Working with Adrien was seriously a dream!! I talked to SO many seamstresses and not only was Adrienn the most reasonably priced for the job, she is also one of the most talented seamstresses in New York!! She turned my project around in like two weeks when I anticipated at least a month. Seriously, I couldn't be happier. My dresses came out beautiful and I can't wait to work with her again. <3

Lori was excellent! She did a full wardrobe review with me to identify what items I was lacking, followed by a thorough personal shopping session tailored to my needs. She was an excellency communicator through the whole process and was able to very quickly understand and articulate what I was looking for. I highly recommend her services!

Sarah is an outstanding seamstress. Everything she has done for me is absolutely perfect. She is quick and always has great advice on how she can fix whatever it is that needs fixing. She has done dresses, pants and is even remaking my daughters wedding dress. I would highly recommend Sarah for any tailoring job you need.

Erin was flexible, accommodating, professional and very reasonably priced. She was extremely attentive and quick to respond. She made a custom tie for my fiancé out of tricky fabric remnants, and even though what I gave her was far from ideal, she got creative and made it happen! It looks perfect. I’d highly recommend Erin for any tailoring services!

I have used the same tailor that founded Merch for years and years. Being petite, everything I buy has to be altered. When I lost weight, she altered my clothes so that the fit was perfect. A couple of friends highly recommended her and that’s how I found Maria. The quality and workmanship can’t be beat. My clothes have always been ready when she says they’ll be ready never late and when I’ve had wardrobe “emergencies“ Maria has never failed to accommodate me. I would highly recommend her without any reservation whatsoever .

Rosario is INCREDIBLE! You will NOT be disappointed. I went to her literally 1.5 weeks before a wedding in which I was a bridesmaid because my dress came out almost 3-4 dress sizes too small. She created an ENTIRE new back for the dress & it look perfect. I actually think it looked better than the original! It was a lace back as well so I was really nervous of how it would turn out. She was warm, helpful & flexible. Worked flawlessly & communicated quickly. I've been singing her praises ever since & feel grateful to have a great seamstress whenever needed. Thank you, Rosario! You are so gifted! :)

I brought my dress to Monika for alterations and she blew my expectations out of the water. I thought I loved my dress before I had all the work done, but she transformed my gown, it was truly stunning. The fit was exceptional, she went above and beyond. She tailored the hem, brought in the sides numerous times, lowered the arm pit area so it would be comfortable, fixed the straps... it goes on the work she did. Not only did she tailor my dress but she custom made my veil which was a true show stopper! The pictures of the veil do not do justice, hand made with lace, it will be something I treasure forever.

Marianne created an absolutely dazzling red party dress for me. I picked out a pattern and fabric and she did the rest! It came out beautifully and tailored just for me. She is very professional, skilled, quick, and good about making sure she understands what you're looking for.

    Minnae is an exceptional men's taylor. If you need to have a suit altered in any way, it is very important to work with someone that has a lot of experience in men tailoring. Great tailoring can make all the difference and make you look like a million bucks. I strongly reccomend her.

      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.

      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.

      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.  

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
