Where Have all the Tailor’s Gone
I have mentioned in earlier posting of how I was pressed into service for hemming clothes for my wife, and the word is leaking out that others can
beg my wife and con me into doing simple task on their clothes.
Its amazing but stores like J.C. Penny and other’s use to tailor clothes but that has ceased in most cities. Dry Cleaners used to have people to just sew buttons back on or minor repairs. Gone.
I think this could be a great cottage industry for younger people to work out of the home. One can simply ask the chain’s to post your availability and experience. Word of mouth I am sure would travel and one would have more than enough work, be your own boss.
We have only one tailor left in a city of 50,000. I just have a feeling that tailoring and seamstress’s will fit into the future.
Oh by the way true tailors and seamstresses are not cheap and its expected to pay a bit more for clothes that fit! Doc
What do you think?
