from fit to finish explained

Pins mean sales! If you run a boutique, you may already have a seamstress or an alterations hand. But if you are a shop owner or sales advisor you should know how to fit, pin and measure, plus offer great advice on how the sample dress is going to transform into the dress of their dreams. For this you need to know what’s possible and perform the magic in front of their very eyes. By grasping this process, you will win orders, build confidence, order the correct dress sizes and gain a successful relationship between you, the bride and the designer or manufacturer.
