Like so many other moms out there, after having my son in 2012, I was faced with the daunting prospect of going back to work. As much as I had previously loved the thrill and excitement of my 60hr/week fashion career–with the daily hour-long commute to boot–I was NOT looking forward to jumping back into that particular grind after my maternity leave ended. So I quit.
My little home based business started because of frustration - I just couldn't find pants for my son that were both comfortable and fashion forward. I always wanted to buy him leggings, but so many had bows or frills or just too plain. How could I deny my son the comfort that us Mom's have been wearing during pregnancy, post pregnancy.....well, let's face we would all live in them if we could. So out came the sewing machine and after cutting up a really cool Tee shirt of mine...the perfect pair of leggings were born.
