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

Talk about above and beyond! Where do I begin? My entire experience with Rosita put me at ease. My wedding was planned within a few months and did not have much time to get everything done. I got my dress late and the first thing she did was assured me that I did not have to worry about getting it in time for my wedding. She's extremely talented & detail oriented. I knew my dress was in the perfect hands. She did such an amazing job! When I came to her the dress was too big and too long. It was of a delicate lace fabric (difficult to work with or at least so I thought), sort of vintage meets sparkle look, which I loved, but the fit was not right. She opened the entire dress and tailored it for the contour of my body. She worked with it so effortlessly and made suggestions I would never have dreamed possible. She has an amazing ability to see beyond the status quo and is not afraid to tread on challenging waters. She is quite knowledgeable on current trends and styles. She altered it and it fit perfectly!!! She was also very professional, cordial and patient with me as I went back and forth talking out different options with her and moving around to see how the dress fit. I could not be happier with the fit and I would highly recommend Rosita to anyone and everyone who asked. Rosita knows how to think outside of the box to enhance the presentation of anything she is working on. I received so may compliments on my dress. She had great tips and advice and she is so fun! I was happy with not only her attitude and experience, but the overall end result. My dress fit LIKE A GLOVE and I literally wore it for over 11 hours and did not want take it off, I loved it so much! She also custom made my earrings that complimented my dress wonderfully. She makes unique and beautiful jewelry. I looked everywhere and could not find earring that I felt comfortable with. Thank you so very much Rosita!!!

I sent pictures of my dress and talked to Letitia over the phone. She was very helpful and professional. Although I did not chose her as my seamstress, I still would like to thank her and recommend her to my friends who need their dresses tailored :)

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!

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 had a long black winter coat with a slit in the back that needed to be cut and hemmed. Karla pinned the hem a few times until we were satisfied that we got the right length. I also found some buttons from another coat and she replaced the existing buttons with those. She very pleasant, professional and easy to work with. She certainly will be my 'go to' person for future alterations !

On occasion you just know when something is going to work out beautifully, and by visit number 2 , I knew I had discovered someone to whom I was going to offer a long term commitment. Susanne was the first person to contact me and my instinct told me to go with her. She did an excellent job, as well as helping me to manage a dress which I initially found unmanageable. The quality of her work and her personableness made the whole thing a pleasure. A bit pricey I thought, but thats something i need to talk with here about, which I didn't. feel like I've found a goldmine for tailoring and sewing.. Great job!

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 .

An experienced seamstress/designer from Italy, Sara is an expert in her field and a trustworthy person. It was only two days away from my wedding day and I was desperate to find a tailor who knows the trade and offers reasonable quote. I was very luck to have found Sara. She was very responsive and customer-oriented. Knowing that I had very little time for coming back and forth for fitting, she generously offered to come to my place to do the work, with her magic baggie filled with her sewing necessity, even an iron. I had her hemmed my bridal's gown and added a bustle--it has three layers with the top layer being beading lace. She finished the work in a couple of hours BY HAND! Impressed by her craft, I asked her to help me with other projects--adding a decor piece to my wedding tango dress and elongating wedding pants for my husband. She did them with ease on the spot. She apparently loved what she was doing! I am sure she can take on more complicated project! Just make sure you bring your things to her place where she has access to her sewing machine and everything else. Highly recommended! Get her to be your personal tailor before she gets too booked up ;D

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! :)

    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.

    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.
