The internet economy has fortunately made this search a much more simple process than it was a couple of years ago. You can easily find a list of local tailors, compare prices, view portfolios and share ideas within the space of an afternoon.

This of course applies to people that don’t have the skills to sew on their own. If you do then even better for you. You can maintain your creative vision from start to finish, if this is a thing that appeals to you. If however, you feel that your emotional investment into your project may blind you to imperfections, this would be a good stage to outsource.
