LEILANI MOMOISEA SPEAKS TO PAMELA THORNTON FOR RALLY

Pamela Thornton - Sample Machinist
"Sample machinists start from calico. Liz and Olga talk about the garment they want, she comes up with the pattern and we start off with calico first. It’s just put together to see if they like the shape and styling of it. You might do several before they get the fit right, and after that we’ll put it in a fabric. We might put it one fabric, and it won’t work, and then you’ll put it in another and it’s great."
