Seamstresses and dressmakers construct, alter, restyle, or repair garments.

When doing alterations, seamstresses can perform a multitude of services including letting out or taking in waistlines, adjusting hems, re-sewing seams or replacing buttons.

Making an entire garment from scratch begins with measuring the client. It can include advising on fabric and style before cutting the fabric, sewing sections together, pressing and conducting a final fitting. This is a very specific process, and the client will need to be available for fittings and be comfortable communicating with the dressmaker about his/her likes and dislikes.
