Most people have their favorite outfits that they cannot imagine not having as part of their wardrobe. However, over time an outfit can become a little too snug, a little too loose, or have a damaged area in the material that can make the clothing next to impossible to wear. The great news is this does not mean it’s the end of the road for that special clothing item or outfit, it simply means it needs to be tailored to fit better and ensure the classic look of the clothing item or outfit comes back. Tuxedo shops and high end clothing stores have both Tailors and Seamstresses onsite or they can send your clothes out for alterations.
Tailors have been around for thousands of years, and they are masters at the craft of clothing. A good tailor can bring back a clothing item from the brink of non-usage and make it wearable again just by making a few stitches in the right places. What would we do without Tailors and seamstress?
There are usually three basic needs that people have for a tailor or seamstress that involves the repair or adjustment of clothing items to allow them to fit better or repair the damaged cloth.These include:
Taking Clothing In
Taking Clothing in is relatively easy for a tailor or seamstress. They simply define through the measurements of the person wearing it just how much the cloth should be pulled in and re-sewn in order to make the outfit or clothing item a closer more fitting piece to wear. For people who lose weight, this is the perfect solution to make clothes that are a bit too big. Tailoring them can make them look right and become wearable again.
Letting Clothes Out
Over time, clothing can fit a bit snugger than it used to. Additionally, for people who are still growing a bit clothing can become too short and impossible to wear. The good news is there are ways to fix this through a tailor or seamstress. As with most clothing, there is often an extra lining of material that can be used to help take clothing out and make it slightly larger in fit if need be. Additionally, some clothing can be supplemented with a little extra material added on to make the clothing fit more readily if there has been a little weight gain or a change in height.

Repairing Damaged Clothing
Most clothes over time can be susceptible to getting a snag or small tear. This can be quite noticeable depending on where it is located. For finer clothing this can be difficult to repair on your own. The good news is that a professional tailor or seamstress are trained in exactly how to repair finer cloth materials and can usually make a repair that is barely noticeable. Never buy online unless you know the designer and how their clothing fits or you will be sending it back. And if you needed it then it maybe too big or too small.
Certain clothing items like a coat, a suit or formal dresses can often have several layers of cloth materials including inseams and pocket areas. At any given point in time, these inseams can tear and make wearing it a challenge. The best way to repair this is through a professional tailor who knows how to get inside the inseam areas and make repairs and sew it back together so that the damage that was there is unnoticeable. So if you need a tailor or a seamstress just remember your in good hands either way and your doing the right thing. I still don’t know how anyone can buy clothes or rent them online and not expert to visit a tailor or seamstress. Wow, if you can get lucky and your tuxedo or wedding dress fits you got lucky. Shop local and use a local tailor and seamstresses and I promise you will sleep a lot better before your big wedding day or anytime you need to look good.
