Dear Ms. Gutierrez:

Your posting for a tailor and seamstress on JobBankUSA.com caught my eye so I decided to write this cover letter immediately. I am looking for new employment in this field and would love to become an employee of Seaside Boutique. I am accomplished at tailoring garments for retail clientele, including hemming, shortening, tucking seams, letting them out, reshaping to fit an individual's figure. Working with other tailors would be a welcome change from the free-lance tailoring I am now doing in my home.

May I stop by your shop to meet you in person? I'm available at your convenience any weekday except Thursday. Please phone me at 345-678-9999 to arrange an interview. I am eager to meet you and to show you what I can do.
