Fortunately for me, Marti stepped out of her prom dress and bridal gown sweet spot to make me an awesome custom tailored Santa Claus outfit. She was just terrific to work with and very patient with me (I no nothing about garment construction and still don't have a clue about bound button holes) . I live in Herndon and it's not a short drive to Marti's but my wife always came with and we actually looked forward to the fitting sessions. It was just fun. She did a fantastic job on the suit (pictures attached I hope) and I have have received dozens of compliments in the few weeks that I've had it. Marti knows her stuff and I heartily recommend her. If she can make a short fat Christmas elf look good, imagine what she can do with normal sized humans. - Bob Saunders

I had a designer bra that was too big, and preferred to tailor it rather than give it away. Irina repositioned the shoulder straps on the cups and carefully removed some of the sides of the cups so that the cups would fit better. She also stitched in some pushup pads. The bra now fits perfectly and you wouldnt tell the bra was tailored! Irina is very professional and talented. I will definitely make use of her services again.

After finding out I need tailoring done on a pair of pants within the next 48 hours for a wedding, as the suit I had gotten arrived with unhemmed pants. Due to my busy schedule, I couldn't get it done any sooner than this last minute. It wasn't exactly easy to find somewhere close to me that wouldn't need to have a reservation done as early as i needed it, or that would have been able to get it done in my short time limit. She was able to see me and hem my pants the night before I needed to have them ready, and had it done in just over an hour for a very reasonable price. Saved my skin, and I'm grateful.

Lori is great. I have worked with other individuals and companies purchasing tailored shirts and Lori was head and shoulders above my other experiences. The first shirt she had made for me fit great with only minor adjustments which were made without hesitation. I highly recommend Lori for your fashion needs.

    Denis is an outstanding tailor. I came to him with an idea for a 17th century dress that I have seen in a museum (Silver Tissue Dress) and he immediately showed me how it can be made and what it will look like, he designed and decorated it and it looks as if it came from the court of Lois XIV. The dress is beautiful, the tailoring impeccable and the pleats he did are meticulous. I felt like a princess wearing it at the Venice carnival this year. I definitely recommend him and will contact him for future costume events. He not only has the skill to sew well but he is a great designer as well. Thank you!

    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.
