Tailor Job Description

Tailors are people who have the skills, creativity and eye for style to design clothing.

While, most tailors work in textile manufacturing, they also work in many other industries.

The average salary for tailors in the United States is $37,000 per year.

However, this varies based on whether the person is a self-employed tailor or working for a clothing manufacturer.

Tailors typically start with introductory sewing classes, and depending on the amount of experience they have, many tailors move on to further training.
