This TBC Classic Tailoring leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way to get your Tailoring skill up from 1 to 375 in Burning Crusade Classic.
If you still haven't decided about your second profession, I think Tailoring goes well with Enchanting because you don't need a gathering profession to support either of them, and you can also use Enchanting to disenchant the items you made with Tailoring. Check out my TBC Classic Enchanting leveling guide if you want to level Enchanting.
I recommend trying Zygor's 1-70 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide will help you to reach level 70 a lot faster.

Approximate materials required
This is the list of the approximate materials required to level Tailoring up to 375.
- 204x Linen Cloth
- 135x Wool Cloth
- 804x Silk Cloth
- 470x Mageweave Cloth
- 940x Runecloth
- 100x Rugged Leather OR 50x Gold Bar OR 25x Dream Dust. (you will need an extra 250 Runecloth if you buy Dream Dust)
- 2976 x Netherweave Cloth
- 204x Arcane Dust
- 10x Knothide Leather
- 34x Netherweb Spider Silk
You might not need the 34x Netherweb Spider Silk if you get lucky and get dungeon drop recipes, so I would recommend buying them later. (you can read more about this at the 360-375 part).
You can learn Tailoring from any of these NPCs below. Just click on any of the links to see the trainer's exact location. You can also walk up to a guard in any city and ask where the Tailoring trainer is, then it will be marked with a red flag on your map.

1 - 75
You will need around 59x Coarse Thread for the 1-75 part. You can buy them from the Tailoring Supplies vendor near your trainer. When buying from the vendor, use SHIFT + MOUSE CLICK, then type in how many you want. (the maximum amount you can buy at once is 20 for threads and 10 for dyes)
I don't recommend buying all the dyes and thread at once because it will fill up your inventory and you won't have that much bag space to craft items. I'll list the needed Dyes and Thread for each part separately.
- 1 - 45
102x Bolt of Linen Cloth - 204 Linen Cloth
Stop making these if you reach 45 and only make more if you need them.
- 40 - 67
35x Linen Belt - 35 Bolt of Linen Cloth, 35 Coarse Thread
- 67 - 75
8x Reinforced Linen Cape - 16 Bolt of Linen Cloth, 24 Coarse Thread
Visit your trainer and learn Journeyman Tailoring. (Requires level 10)
You will need around 43x Fine Thread for the 75-125 part. You can vendor any remaining Coarse Thread, you won't need them.

- 75 - 100
45x Bolt of Woolen Cloth - 135 Wool Cloth

You will need 20x Silken Thread, 71x Heavy Silken Thread, 20x Red Dye, 5x Orange Dye and 50x Rune Thread for the 205-300 part.
205 - 300
- 205 - 215
10x Crimson Silk Pantaloons - 40 Bolt of Silk Cloth, 20 Red Dye, 20 Silken Thread
- 215 - 220

- 230 - 250
23x Black Mageweave Headband - 69 Bolt of Mageweave, 46 Heavy Silken Thread
- 250 - 260
188x Bolt of Runecloth - 940 Runecloth
- 260 - 280
25x Runecloth Belt - 75 Bolt of Runecloth, 25 Rune Thread
The recipe goes yellow at 270, you might have to make a few more.
- 280 - 300
Make 25 from one of these:
- 25x Brightcloth Cloak - 100 Bolt of Runecloth, 50 Gold Bar, 25 Rune Thread
- 25x Runecloth Gloves - 100 Bolt of Runecloth, 100 Rugged Leather, 25 Rune Thread
- 25x Wizardweave Leggings - 150 Bolt of Runecloth, 25 Dream Dust, 25 Rune Thread
The recipes will be yellow at 290, so you might have to make a few more.
Burning Crusade Classic (300-375)
You can learn the new TBC Tailoring skill from the Master Tailoring trainers in Hellfire Peninsula. Horde players can learn it from Dalinna at Thrallmar, and Alliance players can learn it from Hama at Honor Hold.
Rune Threads are sold by your trainer.
300 - 325
496x Bolt of Netherweave - 2976 Netherweave Cloth
You will use all of these later, so it's better to make all of them now for free skill points.
You can stop making them at 325 and only make more when you need them, then you will only need around 450x Netherweave Cloth to reach 325.
325 - 340
102x Bolt of Imbued Netherweave - 306 Bolt of Netherweave, 204 Arcane Dust
The Pattern: Bolt of Imbued Netherweave is sold by Eiin in Shattrath City.
You will need a Mana Loom to craft Bolt of Imbued Netherweave. It's right next to the NPC who sells the recipe, so you don't have to go anywhere.
There are cheaper alternatives like the Netherweave Bag, but you will need at least 90 of these to reach 375, so it's just better to make them now while they still give skill points. Even if you don't want to make all of them now, you should make around 12-13 of them until you reach at least 335.
This is not really an alternative for this part, but if you have the Arcanoweave Robe or the Arcanoweave Boots recipe, you won't need 102x Bolt of Imbued Netherweave, so you can stop making at 335 or 340.
Most high-level recipes are made with Bolt of Imbued Netherweave, so I still think it's worth making them until they turn grey because you will use them anyway, but you should at least make them until 335.
340 - 345
5x Netherweave Boots - 30 Bolt of Netherweave, 10 Knothide Leather, 5 Rune Thread
This recipe is taught by your trainer in Hellfire Peninsula, so you have to go back.
You have to make more than 5 if you didn't make the 102x Bolt of Imbued Netherweave in the previous step.
345 - 360
20x Netherweave Tunic - 160 Bolt of Netherweave, 40 Rune Thread
The recipe is sold by Eiin in Shattrath City. It will be yellow for the last 5 points, so you might have to make a few more.
Once you reach level 60 and Tailoring skill 350, you may begin a quest to learn one of three specializations: Mooncloth Tailoring, Shadoweave Tailoring, or Spellfire Tailoring.
For information on how to choose a specialization, please see my separate guide:
Tailoring Specializations in TBC Classic
360 - 375
17x Imbued Netherweave Tunic - 102 Bolt of Imbued Netherweave, 34 Netherweb Spider Silk, 17x Rune Thread
The recipe is sold by Arrond in Shadowmoon Valley. You need to have a neutral Scryers reputation to be able to talk to him. Fortunately, it's not BoP, so you can ask someone else to buy it for you if the NPC is hostile to you. (or just buy it from the Auction House)
You can also make Imbued Netherweave Robe, it costs the same, and it's sold by the same NPC.
Both recipes will be yellow for the last 5 points, so it's possible you have to make more than 17 to reach 375.
The Arcanoweave Robe or the Arcanoweave Boots is a good alternative if you have the recipes.
- 17x Arcanoweave Boots - 136 Bolt of Netherweave, 272 Arcane Dust, 34 Rune Thread
- 15x Arcanoweave Robe - 180 Bolt of Netherweave, 300 Arcane Dust, 30 Rune Thread
If you have both recipes, then make the Boots up to 371 and then switch to the Robe for the last 4 points.
Pattern: Arcanoweave Robe is dropped by the last boss Pathaleon the Calculator inside The Mechanar dungeon.
Pattern: Arcanoweave Boots is dropped by Sunseeker Astromages also inside The Mechanar dungeon.
Congratulations on reaching 375! Please send feedback about the guide if you think there are parts I could improve or if you found typos, errors, or wrong material numbers!
