How Many Tailors do you need for a Tailor Store or Sewing Workshop?

This article will answer a special question for fashion designers, which is to find out the approximate number of employees or workers or tailors needed for a tailoring or sewing shop, the first thing you have to know is the area you want to specialize in as well as what specific area do you want to work in, by answering this question you can find out the number of tailors you might need at the beginning of your tailoring journey or sewing project.

In addition to how many tailors to hire as well as how many additional tailors you will need. The first time you open a tailor shop, you will need to assign or recruit a cutter who specializes in cutting textiles whether for men's clothing or women's clothing, and he or she is the person responsible for cutting fabrics according to the required size and occasionally is seen taking the customer's measurements.

Usually the cutter’s experience ranges from 10 to 30 years in tailoring and his experience has made him an expert in this field. If he or she has a problem with one of the tailros or employees, you will notice many issues and problems occurring in the shop, which oftentimes leads to the dismissal of one of the tailors or the cutter who is not suitable to work together in the team, and this is quite a difficult thing to control.

If the tailor shop is very large, for example larger than 50 square meters, you will need a person called a "pattern designer" or a “pattern cutter”, sometimes they call him or her a clothing model designer. This person is skilled in cutting materials according to the required design for clothes, and is considered to be a necessity for large women's sewing shops because they can convert the fashion  designs from paper drawings to reality, where the raw material is cut and sewn by the team.

Small sewing shops do not need this type of person because his or her salary is usually high, and they are also a specialist in one field and it's quite difficult to teach them other sewing related things because their focus is purely technical or creative oriented, you will notice that the Cutter and the Pattern Designer deal hand in hand with one each, as both must work together to create different designs according to the request of the client or the shop owner.

Now let us focus on calculating the number of basic tailors you need for a sewing shop. This is a simple and easy method based on the daily sewing orders the store receives according to the average demand. For example, if you have an average of three to five orders a day, you will need one tailor to meet those requests, and each tailor you hire will depend on this basic rate that’s based on the simple design of a thobe or dishdasha.

For design matters related to women's dresses, this calculation changes according to the sewing performance of the tailors and according to the machinery available in the store or sewing operator’s skills. You will notice that some tailors are faster than others based merely on their age or skill set, typically older tailors are slower in performance and tailors who are new in the field tend to be slow as well.

Typically Sewing Workshops employ one cutter for every eight or ten tailors in general, the cutter uses an automatic cutting textile machine for fabrics to cut many materials quickly at once, and this device works either on electricity or compressed air, the sewing workshops use tailors of normal quality because their focus is on productivity and not achieving high quality garments, so clothes made in tailoring workshops or local factories are not of high quality.

On the other hand Tailoring Factories for sewing bulk orders of clothing differ because each tailor is assigned a role according to their specialty, such as the "buttonhole" tailor specialized in sewing buttons, the "finishing" tailor for final details, or the "embroidery" tailor for decorations. In conclusion I wish to say that every tailor has a specialty and it is better for them to focus within their field to improve their tailoring performance for sewing clothes in wholesale or for retail.
