Back in 2011 when my twin girls were just 8 weeks old, I decided to use my sewing skills from studying at the London College of Fashion 20 years previous to make them their first outfits as they were so tiny, I couldn't find anything to fit them.
I started the business by hand sewing tutus before being able to buy my first sewing machine since my college days. From then on the business grew from strength to strength by working into the small hours to fulfill my orders, whilst balancing the family life.
5 years on, I work with my very supportive husband in a workshop in the heart of beautiful rural Devon. We now offer a wide range of items as part of the Rocket & Rose brand with a much larger array of equipment to make such fun designs for the fashion label. With a new addition to our family in 2014, we are still balancing work & family life with a business that is going from strength to strength & offering lots of new items to bring your wardrobe & your imagination to life!
Start planning ahead from the offset of starting or thinking about starting your business. Take a notebook everywhere you go & jot down what is in your head as & when as you are much more proactive & creative when you have more head space. Be confident & believe in your skills & your product & don't be afraid of asking for help. Put the long hours in at the start & sure enough, one day you will reap what you sow.
