Types of dressmaking shears

Shears for cutting and sewing can be classified as follows:

  • Dressmaker's shears: also known as all-purpose shears, as they can cut fabrics, threads, and anything needed by a seamstress. They are typically made of steel and have a straight or rounded tip.
  • Tailor's shears: primarily used for precise cutting of various types of fabrics. The blade must always be very sharp.
  • Thread snips: easily recognizable by their smaller size, they are designed for cutting threads. They are used for trimming fabrics and seam ripping.
