Lucy came up with the idea after struggling to find clothes on the high street to fit her son Oliver, now aged three.

She said: “I could never find trousers to fit Oliver because his legs were short and just didn't fit him properly. I bought him a pair of handmade leggings made to the right measurements and I loved them, it just sparked something off in me and I started making my own clothes for Oliver, my daughter Isabel and for friends and family.”

Fast forward a few months and Lucy has turned her passion for fashion into a fully fledged business.

Lucy who launched her business in June of last year has been receiving rave reviews from customers keen to find clothing that will make their little ones stand out from the crowd.

Lucy, aged 31 added: “I only get small amounts of each fabric so every make is that little bit more special and unique.

“The feedback from customers has been so positive and all the gorgeous photos I get sent of their little ones in their outfits genuinely puts a smile on my face and makes me feel so proud.” 

Lucy balances the demands of the business with looking after her two children Oliver aged three and a half and one-year-old  Isabel.

She said: “It’s definitely tough but it’s all about balance and I have a lot of support from my husband Dave, I couldn’t do it without him.”
