I am grateful for the opportunity to earn money using what I know. I enjoy the different projects we get. I am proud of what I’m doing and I love it!”
My name is Chinnyere McPherson, fashion designer of the brand FASCHINN. I searched
high and low for a pattern maker to help grow my fashion line. Although I am a fashion designer, Mary Ruth of United Sewing and Design really helped my brand fine tune our business practices. Our first project was a pair of high waist pants. After some necessary trial error, we came up with the perfect fitting pants which I continue to reuse for reorders and continuous collections. It has become a classic design for my brand. Along with perfecting the original sample, United Sewing and Design also graded the pattern from size 0 to 12. United Sewing and Design has also assisted FASCHINN with constructing a few pieces from our last collection “Anatomy of a Rose”which came out beautifully! I am excited to see what other magic we can create together.
I am very happy with the new window seat cushion in my daughter’s room! The quality of the work is great and the staff is wonderful to work with. The help I received with planning made me confident that I would get the look I wanted. Would definitely work with United Sewing and Design again!
