So many people refer to themselves as tailors, but the fact of the matter is, just because someone can sew, does not make them a tailor! In fact most dry cleaning firms have a tailor at their location… But how skilled are they?
A great tailor is like a great dry cleaning firm, they help to keep your wardrobe better than new, or restore pieces to their original condition once damaged. Both an art and a skill; garment construction, fabric types, draping and understanding the fit of a garment are fundamental skills a great tailor needs to possess. But what separates a tailor from a “great” tailor? Tailors that are highly creative, as disassembling a garment after it has been constructed requires creativity, skill, and patience.
