Dressmaker scissors offer a longer cut, ideal for cutting patterns, trimming seams or cutting long lengths of fabric. These versatile scissors have long, precision-sharpened blades that easily cut through multiple layers of fabric, all the way to the tip. A double-plated chrome-over-nickel blade finish is both eye-catching and durable, and the curved handle design helps hold fabric flat on a tabletop or counter for smooth, comfortable, and flawless cutting. Sewing scissors also have a nylon sheath to protect the blades when not in use.
How do I get them sharpened. Can I get my small scissors sharpened Also
I have always gone to a Kitchen or Food supply warehouse. It cost 5 to 10 dollars. You must do some serious Fabric cutting. I have had this brand (in 7") for nearly 40yrs and never had to get them sharpened. I know if you use it to cut paper, it really messes up the blades. But yeah, either a Kitchen or Fabric store can offer Knife/Blade Sharpening. Hope this helps. Happy cutting!!

Whoever bought them last, can you please update?... They have to say made in Italy on the blades, otherwise the quality is not the same that the ones made in Mexico, a friend who is a tailor told me that, they are not made with the same craftsmanship. ****October 2014***
