Sassi Seamz

Name: Shawnta Harris

Location: Dallas, TX 

Type of Business:
Women and children apparel

What does your business do?
Sassi seamz specializes in eye catching women and children fashion.

When and why did you start the biz?
I've been in business since APRIL 2015. I learned to sew as a child and rediscovered my love for it as an adult as a creative outlet that blossomed into a business. I love to create looks that give a boost of confidence. It's as if I put a little bit of my personality in each piece.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
I use my bedroom, the landing upstairs in my hallway, my dining room to meet customers, as well as the storage space under my stairs.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
Financing enough fabric to create decent inventory and space to work.

What's the most fun part?
Designing and sewing. I love to turn fabric into a garment. I find enjoyment in the entire process from drafting a pattern to construction to embellishments. I also love seeing the joy on my clients faces when they see how awesome they look.

Anything you would have done differently?
I would charge more. Never under sell yourself.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Whats next on the horizon for me it a collection of skirts and pants. Beautiful prints and bold colors that im sure many will love as much as i do.

What advice do you have for others?
My advice is to just go for it and don't doubt yourself. Even if you fail you learn something from it.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
This being my first day I'm hoping for help in areas I lack so I can approach my business in a more advantageous manner.

Prior jobs or business?
Seamstress, Retail Assistant Manager, Office Manager, Couture Alterations Associate.

Favorite Food?
Chicken Fried Steak

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
After working retail for many years I often couldn't find thing I wanted. That led me to making them. Others would ask me to make the items for them as well. I loved it so much more than my job so I quit and began working for myself.
