I’m sure your mum/grandmother can tell you stories about making clothes themselves – a skill that is becoming rare! It makes sense to outsource many home skills for progress (we couldn’t expect working mums to also be crafting cupcakes every day and sewing clothes and crocheting tablecloths and growing expansive gardens…!) and yet I also feel sad that I cannot sew or knit (yet!). However, the owners of these businesses CAN! They’re mumpreneurs who have a talent, and they’ve turned it into a hobby or business making children’s clothing! Supporting NZ local businesses is a passion of mine – I would far rather be dressing my babes in homemade clothes than the chain store stuff! If you do too, check out some of these fab online shops for your children’s clothes!
