Woman learns sewing on YouTube, now earns over RM100,000

GEORGE TOWN: Mahani Udit, a tailor at Kompleks Bukit Jambul, has found success by selling children's clothing sewn herself at affordable prices.

Acknowledging the economic challenges faced by many customers, especially parents in the B40 income group, the 35-year-old made the decision to offer children's clothing at reasonable prices to ease their burden.

Known as the 'crazy tailor', Mahani ensures her creations emulate expensive designs but are available at lower prices.

"I actually started selling these children's Eid clothes since the beginning of the year because I understand that some parents want to prepare early.

"I don't mind if I don't make a very high profit, as long as children can feel good wearing beautiful clothes at affordable prices," Sinar Harian quoted her as saying.

A native of Kedah, Mahani said she has experienced hardship as a single mother of three and understands the difficulties faced by parents in the B40 group.

"I know what it's like to struggle. My children used to wear clothes donated by caring individuals. Only after learning to sew from YouTube videos did they experience the joy of wearing new clothes.

"I try to produce quality, beautifully designed clothes at low prices. Alhamdulillah, the response has been very encouraging," she said.

Mahani said that from January until Syawal, she has sold more than 10,000 pairs of children's clothes that she sewed herself with the help of several workers.

"I am grateful to be able to generate hundreds of thousands of ringgit in income from selling these affordable children's Eid clothes," she added.
