The Tailor is a life you can choose to lead in the game Fantasy Life. It is one of 12 Lives that can be chosen as the player's main life at any time during the game by visiting the Guild Master (except during a story mission).

The Tailor uses needles to make clothes, accessories and furniture. There are 167 tailor recipes in the base game and 259 with the DLC.

The Tailor's Life Shop is located at Madam Purl's House - Port Puerto Palace Way.

Main article: Tailor Recipes

There are in total 259 recipes in sewing divided into 4 main components: materials, Tops & Bottoms, others and decor.

Have noticed that it's possible for the crafting mini-game to show the incorrect step that you're on after using "Sewing Machine" ending after consecutive scissors/cutting steps.
