Is it possible to do with ordinary stationery scissors "at the start"?


     No, stationery scissors will never be able to replace your tailor's, because there is an important difference between them!  

     Blades for sewing scissors  longer, and the tips are pointed. That is why they cut any fabric along the entire length of the blade, and even the tips. At office scissors blades are sharpened at an angle of 90 degrees that does not allow to cut out fabric quickly and accurately.  AND  tailor's scissors are still heavier than stationery.

How many scissors does a tailor need?


For the PERFECT SET you need:


№ 1 - scissors with "zigzag" blades for cutting allowances of rounded parts and processing cuts instead of overlock.  These scissors will help you when working with leather, suede, coat fabrics and other non-bulky materials. They are also indispensable for needlework and felt work.


№ 2 - Paper scissors are a must have in your arsenal, as the paper is very blunt blades.

№ 3 - for trimming threads, cutting corners, etc. Such scissors must have sharp and narrow blade ends.

№ 4 - small very sharp scissors, for cutting threads  material in the loop.

№ 5 - clipper (or spinner). In fact, the clipper is difficult to classify as a scissor, but it does its best to cut loops and unpack seams. Its blades are slightly offset from each other, which helps them to converge as well and tightly as possible. Such scissors are very convenient for small works.

In the "people" the clipper is called - a steamer or a steamer.


№ 6, 7, 8 -  classic cutting shears have blades of various lengths and widths. They are designed so that the lower blade when cut lies "flat" without lifting the fabric, providing the highest reliability and accuracy.

* Since tailor's scissors are used to cut all types of fabrics, it is important to know that the thicker the material, the longer the blade should be!
