A seamstress cover letter briefly introduces your resume or CV to a prospective employer. It demonstrates your enthusiasm for the job and profession. It should be written in a standard business letter format with proper spelling and grammar. Use 11-12 point font and limit your letter to one page. Ideally, you have to tailor each cover letter according to the requirements of prospective employer and address it directly to the hiring person.

Keep in mind that American, Canadian, Australian and European employers love non-native accents. Don’t try to write in Oxford English, give it your own feel instead.

Following is a good example of application cover letter for position of seamstress.

RE: Seamstress position

Dear Mr. Abraham:

I am writing concerning your current advertisement for the position of Seamstress at Carmel Tailoring. I am enclosing my resume which I believe will be of interest to you. I am very enthusiastic to become a part of your prestigious company.

I am adept at mending and zipper replacing as required. In addition, I am able to perform housekeeping tasks and adherence to health and safety standards.

I would greatly appreciate if you could consider my application for the position of seamstress. I will contact you during next week to find a possibility of interview. In the meantime, I can be reached at (000) 999,8787. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your time and consideration.
