How To Start A Home Sewing Business

Starting A Home Sewing Business

Starting a home sewing business can be an exciting, fun and profitable adventure for the person who loves to sew. What a way to make a living by doing what you love right from your own home. Operating a home sewing business has many advantages and a few disadvantages which will be covered in this article. Making money right from the comfort of your home by sewing is wonderful!

With the economy being the way it is today and the job market not back on track yet, having a home based sewing business can supplement an income or be your sole source of income. Since almost everyone needs a seamstress at least one time or several times in their lives, there should never be a worry about not having enough work.

There are so many different things you can do from a home based sewing business, it's all up to you. Just take a while to think about what you are good at sewing the most and enjoy making and would like to sell. Then do a little research to see if there is a great need for it, if there is then take the chance and start your business.

The following is a list of what you could do from your home with a sewing business:

1. Provide alteration services

2. Specialize in making custom made curtains

3. Make clothes from patterns for customers

4. Make costumes for customers

5. Make bridal gowns or provide services for bridal gown alterations

6. Make bridal veils

7. Specialize in making baby clothes or childrens' clothes

8. Specialize in making pajamas

9. Specialize in making uniforms

10. Make a variety of different items to be sold

The list is never ending as to what you could do with a home based sewing business. Some people have embroidery sewing machines and make only embroidered T-shirts for their customers.

How To Start A Home Sewing Business

Decide where in your home you would like to have your sewing business. You could run it from a spare room in your home if you have one, designate a part of the living room or bedroom for it, or even a large closet will do. Just be a little creative and positive and see what may happen. If you absolutely have nowhere to park your business in your home, you can always place your sewing machine on your kitchen table and sew from there. I did that for years when my kids were little and didn't have a spare bedroom to set my business up in.

It's always good to check with your town office to see if you will need to acquire a license, and then it's a good idea to look at your state's government website for tax compliance issues. Adding your business to your home insurance policy is always a good idea in case of damage to goods if the unfortunate should happen.

After you've decided what you're going to do with your home based sewing business you should choose a name for it. Choosing a name for your business can sometimes be very challenging. Sometimes when you think the name you chose is unique to your specific business, surprise, you may then find out that it's already taken! That happened to me. When I chose a name for my sewing business and then checked the domains online - unfortunately I saw that it was already taken, and so were my second and third choices. Oh well, finally, I was able to come up with something that is unique and my very own.

Buying What You Need For Your Home Sewing Business

You probably have everything you need already to start operating your home sewing business. Having a comfortable chair, cutting table and storage unit in addition to your sewing machine makes a world of difference for working comfortably and for organization. There are many sites online that sell furniture specifically for a sewing room and remember, the cost of the furniture will be a tax deduction.

A serger is a good investment if you're going to operate a home sewing business. Although it takes some time and patience to learn how to operate one, the time and the money is well worth it. Your garments look very finished and professional when a serger is used in addition to your sewing machine.

Advantages Of Operating Your Sewing Business From Home

There are many advantages to operating your sewing business from home. The first one is that you are your own boss and can make your own hours. If you're a morning person, you can arise before the sun comes up and start working or if you're a nighthawk and get to bed late, you can sleep in and start working whenever you want.

You don't have to worry about the stressful rush hour traffic or other commuting problems. You just get up when you want and you're already at work to start when you want.

When you work from home there are many tax deductions that will benefit you greatly. Remember, everything you buy and use for your business, whether it be material, furniture, machines or sewing notions are all tax deductions. Just remember to keep all of your receipts.

By working from home you save big time in rent that you would have to pay if you had your business elsewhere and in utility costs that would incur.

Disadvantages To Operating A Home Based Sewing Business

There are a few disadvantages to operating a home based sewing business. First is the fact that you will be at home most of the time and may start to experience a little cabin fever. Interruptions are a biggy, phone calls and visits from friends and family can be a potential problem since everyone knows you're at home most of the time.

It is wise to have a set time set aside for work and to let everyone know that so interruptions will be few. Then there's the possibility to procrastinate, leaving a project for later and then stressing out trying to make a dead line.

If you have very young children at home, it can be a challenge trying to finish a project when they need your attention. You may have to work when they are taking a nap or when they go to bed at night.

Wonderful Modern Technology For A Home Sewing Business

Having your own website would greatly enhance your home based sewing business, there are many web host companies that offer great rates and have very easy steps to building your own website saving you much from hiring someone to build it for you. You could then easily sell your items from your website.

With your own business you would be able to make as much money as you want or as little as you want, it's all up to you. There is great satisfaction to having your own business and being your own boss. Overall you will end up having more time for family and friends, doing what you want and not feeling the stress that you would have with a Monday through Friday 9 - 5 job.

Good Luck!

Thank you for sharing my hubs with your friends, I really appreciate it. I'm sorry I took so long answering your hub, I was in the hospital and just got out yesterday. The best to you!

DemiT on July 02, 2013:

I want to learn how to sew and make my own things and I always seem to postpone it...your hub though has given me a lot of positive feelings!! I will be reading and sharing your hubs with my friends!!!Thank you :)

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on April 02, 2013:

Hi lawal,

Thank you for your comments and congratulations on embarking on a career of making school uniforms. There is a great need for school uniforms and you should do very well once you get started.

Start with a simple business plan to keep you from getting overwhelmed. I published a hub "How to Write a Business Plan for a Home Sewing Business" that will help you.

Then next you should think about is starting a blog or website. Google BlogSpot is free. This is where you'll begin marketing and telling the world about your trade- that you make school uniforms. Post regularly to your blog and send it to friends and families. This will give you exposure and help to get your first customer. Once you had a successful business experience with your first customer, you'll be sure to have other customers in the future.

Good luck!

lawal on April 02, 2013:

I am train tailor but yet to commence the business proper, for some years a go; now wish to embark in school uniform making. pls can you help me with the project requirement and other information that will enhance my decision. Thanks and best regard.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on March 01, 2013:


Thank you for visiting and I'm happy you'll keep this hub in mind!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on March 01, 2013:


Thank you very much, I bet those little dresses were really cute. You don't have to have a serger, my mother never had one and she was still able to make professional looking items.

The best to you!

ignugent17 on March 01, 2013:

Thanks for sharing your ideas and tips. I will keep this hub in mind.

Mary Hyatt from Florida on March 01, 2013:

My Mother taught me to sew when I was very small, and I'm thankful she did. I have four daughters and I've always been frugal! I used to make all their clothes until each one reached teenagehood. Then they wanted "store bought" clothes. I would later sew for my five grandchildren when they were small. I no loner sew cause I have no little ones around that want my cute little dresses, etc.

I should have bought a serger when I was really sewing, but just never did.

You wrote a very informational Hub here. I voted it UP, etc. and will share. I also Pinned, Tweeted, and posted on HP Facebook page.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on September 09, 2012:

Hi sabaisland,

I bet your childrens' dance skirts and costumes are adorable! You don't have to have insurance for your home business but it would be added security if an unfortunate situation arose. I don't have it for my home sewing business but I may get it in the future; especially since I do a lot of alterations. If there was water damage in my home or some other act that damaged clients clothes, insurance would reimburse them for the damages. Thank you for your comment and all the best with your business.

sabaisland on September 08, 2012:

hello, I am a home sewer making childrens dance skirts and costumes. I have sold some in consignment shops and on-line. I am very small and only make a few at a time. Do I need insurance for my home business?

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on May 08, 2012:

Thank you very much viking305 for your comments. I operate this business part-time and can't wait for the day I'm able to operate it full-time!

L M Reid from Ireland on May 08, 2012:

A very interesting and useful article. Starting your own business is an exciting time for anyone and this hub explains the facts.

Thanks for SHARING. Up and useful

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on May 02, 2012:

Thank you very much Mikayla for your wonderful comments. I'm so happy that you are starting your own Pet Accessories business. You will be very successful since many people love their pets very much and buy many things for them. So happy that this article was able to encourage you. I wish you the very best for a successful business!

Mikayla on May 02, 2012:

I'm only 14 and this is VERY helpful to me! I am starting my own Pet Accessories business and I'm creating new accessories to sell! I love to sew and I'm saving up for a horse! WISH ME LUCK! Your article was AMAZING! It has really helped me! :D

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on April 20, 2012:

Thank you for reading my hub and I'm happy that you will be able to incorporate some of what you learned here in your business. However, this is not a blog. Here at Hubpages we write "hubs" which are articles about subjects we love. This content is published and made available to anyone who searches for it on the internet. The best to you in your business. on April 20, 2012:

HiCreativelycc !

I wanted to check up and allow you to know how , a great deal I liked discovering your blog today. I might consider it the honor to operate at my business office and be able to utilize the tips discussed on your web site and also take part in visitors’ remarks like this. Should a position of guest article author become on offer at your end, please let me know.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on April 11, 2012:

Hi Desert Crafter.

That is so true! I love my serger and use it all the time when altering customers' clothing. The finished seams always look professional and neat. Thank you very much for visiting my hub and thank you for your comments.

Desert Crafter on April 10, 2012:

I recently purchased my serger. Its like a microwave, you wonder how you lived without one! You can do seams on your regular machine, but its very time consuming to do bound & taped seams. French seams are not practical for all seams. If your looking to make money, speed is all inclusive so the serger is a ticket to success of your business. Plus, its fun too!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on March 27, 2012:

Hi Marde and thank you for your comments. I wish you the best with your new home sewing business. I wrote a hub titled "Which Sewing Maching Should I Buy" You can access it from the link below. I'm sure it can help you to find a good machine that will fit your business. The best to you!

marde on March 27, 2012:

hi creativelycc

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on February 22, 2012:

Thank you very much! I love to sew and I'm more than happy to help anyone start a home sewing business. You are right, it is a good money making opportunity for today's economy, the best to you!

Shasta Matova from USA on February 22, 2012:

Congratulations on getting a 100 hub score, and being one of the top 10 best hubs today. These are great tips for how to begin a home sewing business. This is a great money making opportunity for this economy.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on February 20, 2012:

Hi Julie,

When you get your first customer, do an excellent job and they will recommend you to others. That is how I get clients, by word of mouth from other clients. It will happen for you because there is always more than enough work to go around for sewing businesses. I wish you the best!

julie on February 20, 2012:

I am also looking into starting my own sewing business it has always been my love. I have beein sewing on and off for about 20 years. My problem is I have dont dance costumes and crafts. I want to do alteration, curtains and make clothing. I have done a lot of research on this. I am having a hard time finding client. I have called a lot of dry cleaner and they all have in house seamstress.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on February 08, 2012:

Hi ADenaeH, It is legal as long as you give credit to the authors of the books.

ADenaeH on February 08, 2012:

Is it legal to use books that show how to make things such as fabric flowers, baby items, etc and then sell the items or teach the customers how to make those items?

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on February 04, 2012:

Hi Diana, the best thing to do is to ask a tax accountant. We have our taxes done by an accountant since there is so much more to it when you have a small business. The best to you!

Diana on February 04, 2012:

When filling out a tax form, what type of business is sewing? I am making and selling doll clothes. Would that be under "Retail" or "Cut and Sew Apparel Manufacturing"?

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on February 03, 2012:

Hi paxwill,to be honest,you'll probably have more customers requesting alterations. You can really make a decent living doing alterations. Once you have your customers,you can let them know that you can make clothes from scratch too. Some of them will definitely need that service too in the future. Thank you so much for your comments and good luck to you!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on January 30, 2012:

Thank you very much Bloomsandbugs for your very nice comments. Etsy is a great place to sell handmade items. Thank you for the link to the blog. I'll check it out. The best to you.

Anshu from San Francisco, CA on January 30, 2012:

A great article. Its always very useful to get inputs from someone who is already doing it. I would like to add that could be a great place for someone to sell handmade items. Here's one blog that also has a lot of great advice on running a business of handmade items:

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on January 05, 2012:

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments cbrideau. I have been asked to do videos and I am strongly considering it. Get yourself a very easy pattern and take it step by step. So many people start with hard patterns and get discouraged. Simplicity has a line of very easy style. You have the talent, especially if you taught yourself how to quilt. Quilting is not easy. Thank you again for your comments.

cbrideau on January 05, 2012:

By any chance, would you consider teaching your skills, by video link? I checked out your website, and your work is incredible. I am sure that others would love some pointers. I am a hands on learner--as I am a self taught quilter. I have made some clothes here and there, but cannot for the life of me follow a pattern. My favorite thing to do, is repurpose old tees into a quilt-top, or fashion some old shirts/jeans into something new for one of my daughters. Just a thougt!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on January 04, 2012:

Thank you very much cbrideau for your wonderful comment! The best to you!

cbrideau from Northern Worcester County, Mass on January 04, 2012:

I really like your article. Very informative, and you gave a lot of options, not just opinions. Great Job!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on December 26, 2011:

Thank you very much craftybegonia for your comments!

craftybegonia from Southwestern, United States on December 26, 2011:

Nice hub, useful information. Voted up.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on December 07, 2011:

Hi Donna,

Thank you for your comments. You are so right, it's very hard to charge what the sewing labor is worth. I find that I get more customers requesting alterations; and alterations are not my favorite thing to do.

Maybe you should think about making one particular item and marketing it. For instance, only make hand-bags or wedding veils. That's what I'm thinking about doing in the future.

I agree with you 100% when you say that folks need to give this type of business serious thought and charge what they're services are worth and stick to it. It also helps to have a service price list and stick to it. I wish you the best.

donna on December 07, 2011:

Nice information. Many years ago - I was a professional seamstress -for about 3 years. Income not quite what I wanted. Alterations were the best income. Making clothes from patterns the worst - I just could not charge what I really needed to, to adequately compensate for my time. Many folks think that if they buy the pattern and material, the final cost of their garment should be less than what a comparable garment would be in the store. Not so!!!! I still sew and was thinking about doing it as a home based business again - might but still thinking. Folks who do this need to give serious thought to what it really costs to do specific things - charge what you must and stick to your prices.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on October 20, 2011:

That is wonderful Mardraley, I'm so happy for you. I wish you the best of luck. Take it slow, one step at a time and don't become discouraged. A small business takes time to build.

Mardraley on October 20, 2011:

Oh,Thanks for the tips.I am planning to start my home sewing business early next year.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on August 16, 2011:

You are very welcome Troy and thank you for your comments!

TroyM on August 15, 2011:

Oh, Very interesting home based business. Operating a home sewing business has many benefits. Thanks for sharing your ideas...

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on July 30, 2011:

Thank you very much hemustincrease for your comments. Having your own home sewing business would be ideal for you. You would have to follow a structured work schedule to get jobs done along with home schooling your children. It would be challenging but very much possible with an organized plan. Fixing sewing machines along with alterations and other sewing jobs will get you clients. Once you have a few satisfying clients, they will always come back and recommend you to others. Good luck to you!

hemustincrease on July 29, 2011:

I am a single mum just now and keep on thinking about whether or not to set up a sewing business. I am self taught and have only been sewing for four years so i think this is partly why i am nervous to get going with this idea. I home school my kiddos and am going to have to do something soon to be able to stay home with them. I am going to have to really settle down and make some kind of business plan to get focused. I enjoyed this hub. You covered a lot without being too wordy. Thanks. I already have a serger which i love. There are so many things you can do with it as well as finish seams. I just need time to learn them all. :) One thing i really want to learn, is how to fix sewing machines. I think that would really be a useful add on to a sewing business. But i can’t find any place local to teach that.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on July 26, 2011:

You are very welcome marimccants. Take you time looking for one because there are so many different types. If you're new to sewing just go with a very basic machine. You'll be surprised as to how much it could do. Good Luck!

marimccants on July 25, 2011:

I am looking for new sewing machine.. Thanks for the information here.

Hi Wife Who Saves,

Thank you very much for your comment and thank you for the well wishes!

Wife Who Saves on August 11, 2010:

I used to have my own side business about 20 years ago. I worked full-time during the day and then sewed, quilted or hand-embroidered a variety of home décor items at night and on weekends. I sold them at craft fairs and church holiday fundraisers. I made good money but after a few years it was too much with a regular job. Good luck in your new business. I wish you the best.

home business on July 26, 2010:

We already had few high speed sewing machines and portable one at home. I tried to practice sewing several times and fortunately I learn some few things of it. It's our way of living and my father is a tailor that's why I can really guaranty that sewing business is one of leading industry here in Philippines.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on July 10, 2010:

Hello Glamour Puss,

So happy to hear that this hub has enlightened you to start sewing again. It's great that a lot of the old styles are reviving, they have so much class to them! Take care!

Glamour Puss on July 10, 2010:

Great hub! As an old fashioned girly girl, sewing is something I have been thinking seriously about taking up for some months. Especially since I think that a lot of the old styles of clothing need a revival! Thank you for this enlightening, and interesting hub.

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on July 06, 2010:

Thank you very much yalenova for your comment!

yalenova on July 05, 2010:

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on July 05, 2010:

Hi Ann Lee,

That sounds like a great idea! There are many avenues to getting an item patented and into production. You can find sources online to help you. The best to you!

Ann Lee on July 05, 2010:

I have tried learning to sew, as I sewed in Home Ec in high school. But, it seems like I often have problems with the thread breaking, the bobbin snarling thread, etc. Finally, in frustration, I gave up. I have an innovative idea for a handbag that someone told me was a "million dollar idea" if I could just get someone who did expert work to make it.

Hi Maruthip,

This would be great for women in India who are housewives to do. Having a sewing business right in their own home is something they can always make money from. I hope they are encouraged by my hub! Thank you so much for your comment!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on July 03, 2010:

Hi Mary,

You are right, not many people today know how to sew and sadly so many young women don't really want to learn how to sew. I'm so happy to hear that your mother makes doll clothes and is making money from it! Doll clothes is definitely something that will never go out of style. Thank you for your comment!

maruthirp from Hyderabad on July 03, 2010:

It is really great idea. Most of the women in India are housewives and they just stick to TVs and other entertainment sources. Instead keeping themselves unproductive they might do this sewing business. You explained in a nice way creativelycc.

Mary on July 02, 2010:

Any person who will do this, will do well. There are not many people who know how to sew anymore. My mom knows how to sew and makes doll clothes for people. She really rakes in the bucks.

Hi Cookie Rookie, thank you for your comments and I'm sure you can have a successful baking business!

bobskeyboardz from California on July 01, 2010:

my mother actually said this to me and my brother 3 days ago, im surprised Im reading it in detail now!

vladhendersen from Ohio on July 01, 2010:

Wow, I really could be my own boss. Too bad I lack the motivation to start my own company!

fran77 on July 01, 2010:

Great advice. Thanks.

jeanie.stecher from Seattle on July 01, 2010:

Nice Hub. Indeed this kind of business works both ways. You could earn income and at the same time have time for your family since your work station is just at home. I find this home business fruitful since not all areas in your community has this kind of business.

Vibhavari from India on June 30, 2010:

Very detailed and well written hub.

The Cookie Rookie from Wichita, KS on June 30, 2010:

I am looking starting a business of my own. Although baking and sewing are rather different. I found your article very helpful. GREAT POST!!!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on June 27, 2010:

Mary Gaines from Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island, Washington on June 27, 2010:

Very useful info and I agree in these uncertain times working for yourself maybe the answer for some. Great hub I have a link to it from my new cross stitch hub. Cheers!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on June 14, 2010:

Hi Greenatheart,

Thank you so much for your comment. There are so many people in the world that have the potential to be wonderful fashion designers or seamstresses. With a little encouragement, maybe more people will decide to give it a try!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on June 14, 2010:

Hi Marbal,

You are so right, in these uncertain financial times, it would be wise for one to start a business from home. With hard work and determination you can really succeed! Thank you for your comment!

Carrie L Cronkite (author) from Maine on June 14, 2010:

Hi Luvinkandtj,

I think starting a small sewing business overseas would be great for you. You can tailor clothes to fit yourself and sew for others making an income. The possibilities are endless with sewing. I wish you the best and thank you for your comment!

greenatheart from Orange County, CA on June 14, 2010:

nice hub! This is a hub that many people do not write about. Especially for our fashion enthusiasts. I'm sure many of would want to know about starting their own sewing home business. All around--kudos!

marbal on June 14, 2010:

Great hub! I'm currently livng over seas. I'm always looking for something to occupy my time while the kids are at school. Also its hard for me to find clothes to fit my figure. I'm short and curvy. I was hinking about starting to sew my own dresses. This would be a great way for me to earn an income, make my own clothes and have a hobby

Very nice hub. I love your idea of making a home business with sewing. Many people love to sew, but your idea takes it a step further. Thanks.
