“It was a little bit of a struggle in the beginning, to switch from sewing men’s clothing to doing dresses now, but I feel more confident with my abilities as time goes on.”
With twenty years in the fashion industry, Araceli is basically a pro sewer, but she hadn’t really worked on dresses until she came to Christy Dawn about four months ago. In the beginning, she struggled with getting the hang of it, and she worried that her production wasn’t fast enough. She says the one thing she’s learned working for Christy Dawn is that it’s really about quality over quantity, and good results are the most important thing to focus on. Once she really understood that value, she says she was able to concentrate more on not rushing through a piece.
