Tailor / Sewer / Dressmaker

How to become a Tailor / Sewer / Dressmaker

Throughout history, tailors, sewers and dressmakers have always been important, serving both the elite and the backbone of society (the general populace). Some of the most famous dressmakers worked for Marie Antoinette, and some of the most famous tailors dressed King Henry VIII (in his younger years, he was considered progressive in the world of fashion). Tailors', sewers' and dressmakers' positions within the general public helped to fuel both the industrial revolution and changes to labor laws both in Europe and the United States. Today, many who had beginnings as tailors, sewers and dressmakers are world-renowned designers who drive the forces of fashion.

So how does one go about becoming a tailor, sewer or dressmaker? Most jobs require at least a high school diploma, GED or equivalent. From there, those wishing to pursue this field should attend a post-secondary vocational school where they will learn the technological and methodological processes involved within these professions.

Because of the variety of opportunities within this field, once trained, a tailor, sewer or dressmaker can easily take on additional endeavors or, if working generically, decide to specialize.

What skills or qualities do I need to become a Tailor?

Depending on your position within these fields, you will need either a combination or all of the following skills: good hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity, physical and mental stamina, knowledge of computer basics and interpersonal skills.

Without good hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity, sewing and cutting results could be disastrous. Similarly, if you're hemming pants and hem the cuff so that it ends up being uneven, your customer isn't likely to be pleased. If you're working on machines, a lack of good hand-eye coordination and ma...
