Dear Ms. Olson:

I have been a fulltime dressmaker for the past twenty years for Cornerstone Clothiers. Today, however, I'd like to apply for the part-time position you've advertised on JobBankUSA.com.

If we could meet in person, I could show you photos of some of the work I've done which I've saved in an album. I have received many awards for my ability to design and create women's clothing including dresses, evening gowns, blouses, and leisure wear.

Are you free to get together one morning next week? Please call me at 456-777-8989 to let me know. I'll accommodate your schedule. Thank you for reading my cover letter and considering me for the job.
