Just as it takes an entire town to raise a child, you also need an army of tools to ensure a flawless appearance of your garments. I’ll introduce you to a whole host of them, but at the end of this post, I’ll share with you 2 secret ingredients that only a few designers know about and that will never stop enhancing your store bought homemade look finish. .

TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT IN THE TAILOR’S WORKSHOP

The tools and equipment in a tailoring shop fall into five main categories, namely:

1. Tools for marking and measuring

2. Cutting tools

3. Crimping tools

4. Assembly tools

5. Useful extras

CUTTING TOOLS

SEAM RIPPER: Used to remove unwanted seams from sewing projects. The longer sharp point pushes into the seam, while the blade between the two points cuts the thread.

ROTARY CUTTER: Used to cut many layers of fabrics. Very useful for when you have bulk orders

SCISSORS: Used to cut fabric. it is important to have a separate one to cut paper or thread so that it does not come off

CUTTING MAT: Used with rotary cutter to protect work surface. It is self-healing and the rotary cutter blades will not damage it.

LONG TABLE: A long table is invaluable in a tailoring shop, especially when working with long stretches of fabric.

MARKING AND MEASURING TOOLS

Tools for marking and measuring include:

TAPE RULE: A flexible tape measure is useful for taking measurements of the body or any three-dimensional item.

FLEXIBLE CURVE – Great for drawing curved lines, this can also be used to measure around odd shapes.

TAILOR’S CHALK: Often comes in a triangular shape, used to mark what you measured.

PENCIL: A pencil is useful for marking patterns.

TRACKING WHEEL: This is the fastest way to mark solid lines. The dressmaker’s carbon is placed between the pattern and the fabric, and the scribing wheel is passed along the lines to transfer dotted lines to the fabric.

TOOLS FOR PRESSING

Crimping tools include:

STEAM IRON: The holes in the surface of a steam iron provide steam that presses the seams beautifully.

MINI PRESS BOARD – A mini press board is useful for ironing parts of garments that are narrow, i.e. pants, or for smaller items such as pockets, collars, etc.

TAILOR’S HAM: It is a rounded three-dimensional shape, the tailor’s ham is useful for pressing seams and awkward shapes.

ASSEMBLY TOOLS

DRESS SHAPES: Dress shapes are useful for checking the fit of a garment before or after it is made. they are sold in different sizes

FULL LENGTH MIRROR – useful for checking the overall fit of garments

USEFUL EXTRAS

COIL STORAGE

THREAD SHELF
