I've been sewing professionally now for over 28 years. Phew! I feel old just typing that! My first trade experience was in a four-year apprenticeship with a fabulous interior designer who also designed & made dresses for the Royal Ballet. Needless to say I gained a wide range of skills that I still use today and am tremendously thankful for the experience it gave me.
I always concentrate on quality, not quantity with a meticulous eye for detail. I have, over the years, spent time making various items from clothes & bedding in factory environments to running my own business creating bespoke wedding dresses and ball gowns.
When my eldest daughter was born in 2006, I ventured into children's goods making cosytoes and pram accessories. They were extremely popular and I always had a long list of orders to work on - however, as my daughter grew and another little girl came into the Taylor household in 2010, babywearing became more my thing. I started making babywearing bags & accessories and converting wraps into ring slings etc. This has proved even more popular and has kept me out of mischief for over 7 years now.
I'm often asked my many non babywearers to create a special keepsake piece, with sentimental value and I honestly love these jobs too, please don't be afraid to ask for things not shown on the website as the possibilities are endless and that's really rather exciting.
