Often when people think of garment creation or alteration, tailors come to mind. Likewise, when considering home textiles, they think of an interior designer. However, another alternative exists for both of these, namely that of the seamstress.

A seamstress performs with skills earned through hard work with consistency and dedication. A seamstress knows the latest fashion for dresses, especially for women and is well versed in home textiles. In the earlier time they were known as only a tailor, but as this job increased in range, the term seamstress was adopted. A seamstress is an artist who is proficient at creating items with a technical foundation, carefully measured and assembled.

No single Traditional, casual or exceptionally designed dresses can make a seamstress alone. Their skills are varied and frequently broad.
