Skilled seamstress with experience of working on a short time notice. I work hard and have become a neat and extremely efficient seamstress. I wish to work for a large scale industry that promotes female workers and provides them with opportunities to show their talent to the world.
Professional Experience

I am responsible for delivering finished projects and am also given allowance to work from home.

British Caravan

I worked on a contract basis to make clothes for a special fashion show that went on in different cities in England and france.

I worked on changing measurements and fixing the clothes for different models who exhibited the fashion show.

I was responsible for delivering completed work within a specified period of time and never exceeded the time limit.

Modern tailoring Works
Seamstresses

Worked for many years for different stitching contracts taken up at the workshop. I have worked for school performances, choir uniforms and stage plays.

I became very fast in attaching zippers and putting on buttons, which won me a title as well.
