In the Summer of 2012 I interned for Anastasia Chatzka in Chicago. I pattern-graded and cut out 50 skirts and 30 bralette and panty sets and created custom orders. I marketed and sold the brand at local street markets. I learned how to pattern grade, successfully market a brand, and strengthened my sewing skills.
