“My least favorite part of the job is when I make a mistake—human errors are inevitable but I really take pride in a job well done, and I like to do it right the first time!”

Gilberto operates the automatic cutting machine, so he touches every single piece of fabric used to make a Christy Dawn dress, and ensures that the patterns are cut out correctly. He’s been cutting fabric for twenty-eight years, starting out by hand first and then graduating to using the machine. It can be difficult, he says, looking at the markers and making sure everything stays right while it goes through the machine, but it’s also fun to have that constant challenge.
