I am a freelance Costume/Wardrobe Assistant and Dresser with over 7 years' experience of working in the theatre industry. I have significant experience working as a Dresser in both repertory and West End theatres on many large-scale musicals, plays, ballets and opera.
I have strong hand and machine sewing skills and can confidently construct and alter costumes in the Wardrobe Department as well as perform emergency repairs during performances. In addition, I have a good knowledge of maintaining, laundering and organising costumes in all types of fabric.
I enjoy working being part of a backstage team and maintain a friendly, approachable manner and keep a level head when emergencies arise. I am used to working long, unsociable hours in fast-paced environments and away from home. I am highly organised, proactive, have a good eye for detail and know the importance of being reliable, prioritising tasks, to use my initiative and be flexible when problem solving.
I am hardworking, polite, punctual and thoroughly passionate about theatre costume. I am always looking to build on my experience and want to work in a variety of roles within the industry.
