I had a terrific experience working with Rose. She listened to all of my needs and I especially appreciated how well we were able to collaborate as I made changes. This was my first rodeo working with a seamstress to create one of my designs and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I will say- make sure you have your garment "sew ready" meaning it needs no additional changes as each change you make is extra... But I say that with no complaints. It's just something to be aware of that I learned along the way. But yes, I greatly enjoyed working with Rose and will be doing more designs with her in the future.

Angela is amazing!!! She is by far the most talented seamstress I've ever had sew for me. She can sew any pattern I bring her or anything my imagination can create! I can depend on her for a custom fit every time! I had a class reunion to attend and waited until the last minute to try on the dress I planned on wearing (out of my closet) and it didn't fit anymore! I called Angela in a panic begging her to help! She was able to come through for me! And the dress fit fantastically!

I took a beginners sewing/sewing 101 class with Takiyah. She was very patient, thorough, and informative. Her skills are impressive and her garments are unique and very high quality! I would recommend her class and I would recommend her for anyone looking for a seamstress!

Let me start by saying I was in a totally urgent situation and I feel like Lisa saved my life. I needed a bridesmaid's dress altered for my best friend's wedding and she turned the dress around in 48 hours!!! Not only does she have over two decades of experience with tailoring.. but her prices are reasonable. In addition, she's a total sweetheart. I would recommend Lisa to anyone. I drove an hour out from where I was to her house but it was so worth it. Definitely hire her, I certainly will if I EVER need anything like this done again.

Awesome seamstress and instructor. Her pupils definitely learn from the best (i. e. skills, creativity, etc). And finished products are better than any store product. Oh...and she never let's her students give up - She believes in each of them and makes sure they know that. #iunderstandpatternsnow #lovingmynewcreativeside

Estelle monogramed baby hats and towels for me. I took them to her home and they were all ready within a couple of days. I loved that she asked me many questions about how she could make the embroidery meet my expectations. She went above and beyond in her work, by washing the items first (I would have never thought of that) and explaining what type of stitching she would use that best suited the material. She had lots of ideas and materials available. She was prompt and her work was outstanding. There is nothing about my experience with Estelle that I would have changed. I have more items that I want her to embroider, and look forward to working again with her soon.

My daughter was registered for get first pageant. I was on to of everything. Then at the last minute my seamstress disappeared and my daughter didn't have an interview suit. One of the most important pieces for pageant. A friend sent her my info and have me her number. She was at my house within a week and back hour a fitting soon after. She was on top of it and I was truly grateful. My baby girl looked amazing and who knew she would be wresting couture fashion byJenee. I'm hoping my daughter will model for her at last once. She's amazing

      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.
