My professionalism and quality of work was proved outstanding, as each day I was given orders to complete for custom made pieces of clothing and accessories. I was not only able to get involved with the pattern cutting and manufacture of both ready-to-wear and bridal garments, but also designed and sewn a lot of hand embroidery to customise the garments to suit the individual customer. Aside from working on production, I was given responsibility to deliver garments and to take trips to order and collect fabric.
