Chalk is a soft, white, porous, sedimentary carbonate rock, a form of limestone composed of the mineral calcite. Several traditional uses of chalk have been replaced by other substances, although the word "chalk" is often still applied to the usual replacements. Tailor's chalk is traditionally a hard chalk used to make temporary markings on cloth, mainly by tailors. However, it is now usually made from talc (magnesium silicate).
A tailor is a person who makes, repairs, or alters clothing professionally, especially suits and men's clothing. A seamstress or dress maker would also utilize tailor chalk. A dressmaker is a person who makes custom clothing for women, such as dresses, blouses, and evening gowns. A dressmaker is also called a mantua-maker (historically) or a modiste. Any sewing professional may find a need for tailor chalk. A sewing professional is the most general term for those who make their living by sewing, teaching, writing about sewing, or retailing sewing supplies. She or he may work out of her home, a studio, or retail shop, and may work part-time or full-time.
