The art of tailoring entails more than just sewing or mending clothes, so says professionals in this line of work. Tailors say an entrepreneur in this business must be able to measure accurately, sew, iron and make adequate fittings. They say other job duties of the tailor include alterations to clothing, repairing torn fabrics, sewing on zippers, hemming and more. “As a tailor, you will discuss with your customers to determine their specifications for the clothing and you will sow most fittings to ensure they fit the customer well and it is your duty to make necessary alterations.
Tailoring in Nigeria, according to entrepreneurs, is a skill which blossoms with selected seasons of the year. They note that festive seasons are often characterized with increased tailoring activities, as customers sew new dresses as they celebrate such periods. The business guarantees stable returns to the entrepreneur, provided the tailor has the adequate skill and has his business outlet strategically located.
“When you have the basic equipment, and of course, have the required expertise, you can make up to N160,000 in a month; but this depends largely on where your shop is situated,” says Babatunde, whose business is located at Kosofe, Ketu, Lagos.
