Given the nature of the delicate matter, I was really nervous about working with a seamstress I did not know. I come from a family of seamstresses too, but they all live far away. I was so fortunate to have found Irina! She did such a wonderful job. She was very thorough, and I believe her experience as a wedding dress designer really adds to her knowledge and skill set on how to handle the dress and materials. Irina had helped me alter my wedding dress. She replaced the broken zipper and hemmed the many layers of organza. I can't emphasize enough, she did such a great job. Overall, I would highly recommend her for any type of alterations you may need, especially when it comes to wedding dresses and gowns.

I needed a bridesmaid dress altered for a wedding that was fast approaching. I found Mary here on thumbtack and am so glad I did! She was very responsive and competed my dress incredibly fast. It looks great and was a reasonable price. I will definitely return to her in the future and would recommend her to anyone in the area who needs a skilled seamstress.

My mom has been an Italian born tailor for over 30 years so I know and appreciate good work. Dmitriy is a true professional. His work is on point. His prices were HALF of another estimate I got! He exceeded my expectations! I've been looking for a good tailor for a long time. I found him. His name is Dmitriy.

I’m a new transplant to Virginia and recently was in dire need of dress alterations for a formal event. After a frustrating experience with other tailors (no returned calls/lengthy turn around dates/excessive pricing) I found Custom Tailoring & Sewing Lessons. She was prompt, professional, reasonably priced and extremely knowledgeable. I’ve recently returned for additional alterations and continue to be extremely satisfied with her professionalism and work. I highly recommend Custom Tailoring & Sewing Lessons for your alteration needs!

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.

Aubrey played a significant part in making my wedding as epic as it turned out to be. She helped me design a customer Renaissance outfit tailor-fit to me based on a couple of reference pictures and vague ideas I had put together. She was awesome. She spent significant time working with me step-by-step through the process: from design, to mock-ups, fabric choice, fittings and more fittings. (I may have put on some weight while she was making it ... oops.) She was great, and helped design something that I was extremely pleased with, that looked and fit great. Easy to communicate and work with, I can highly recommend coming to Aubrey with your custom needs. I'm the guy in the pictures.

I want to thank Kimberly for her beautiful art work, dedication and commitment to meet my project deadline and requirements as promised. I needed to have a custom made wedding gown with quite a bit of unusual requirements that I wanted it to portray what we called a feminine look, but I didn't want it to look just like today's many modern wedding dresses that are overly sexy either. Tell you the truth, at first I was a little nervous and worried that it cannot be done without much of dress samples. Kimberly's creativity and knowledge, the gown turned out perfectly beyond my imagination. It looks such an exquisite gown that just what I need for my wedding. The only challenge that I had during the project was the fitting since I am in PA so it was a bit of driving for me. Other than that, her expertise and craft were second to none and I was so amazed with her art work and detail. She is definitely my favorite seamstress for my future projects and fully recommended.

Stacy is the greatest seamstress ever. She is the only one that my family and I use for all our sewing needs. She has made custom clothing and bedding for all of my children. She has also made all the custom curtains that are in our home. Plus, she made the tuxedo and vest for the happiest and greatest day in my life, my wedding day. Thank you Stacy for all the great, beautiful and wonderful work that you have done and will do for me.

    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.
