Tailors use measuring tools to measure bodies and fabrics to fit clothes to individual customers. They record measurements and perform measurement operations (add, subtract, multiply, and divide) to ensure proper fit of garments.
Tailors use special chalk markers, also known as French chalk, to trace patterns on fabric and mark garments for future cutting, sewing, and other forms of alteration.
Alterations are sometimes required to custom fit a garment, such as a dress or suit jacket, to an individual. Tailors remove and add stitches to take in and let out seams, take up and let down hems, and separate and join garment parts.
Tailors use irons, ironing boards, and other pressing tools, such as a tailors ham, to press fabrics prior to sewing. They also use a range of techniques to press collars, pleats, and other garment pieces for clients.
