Before we talk about how women can make money from tailoring, I am going to stress a little about what tailoring is all about.
Tailoring is the art of designing, cutting, fitting and finishing clothes, so being a tailor just needs you to learn the art of tailoring.
Women who can design well can make money for themselves at home due to the fact that the major thing that is required is just a tailoring machine that would be used to join the clothing materials.
If you choose to become a tailor it would be a good source of income, that’s if you are serious about making money as a house wife because the job does not distract you from carrying out your normal activities, the only problem is that people would be disturbing you at ungodly hours for their clothes to be amended and all the same you are making your cool money, no one frowns when money is coming their way.
So as a tailor, you should be able to repair, alter and resize clothing for people and that is how you would make money because everyone at one time or the other would have a bad clothe that needs to be amended and would not like to stress themselves to town looking for a tailor who would repair their clothes and you could just save them the task by doing the job, in tailoring you can make a lot of money when you are the only one in that vicinity that does that kind of job, but you don’t have to charge your customers too much in order not to drive them away.
