At Tailortime we believe that sewing should be creative, useful and available for everyone to enjoy. Whether you are a mother of 2 beautiful children, a full-time professional or a business owner, sewing time should be hassle-free so that you can make the most of the precious time you have.

Our mission is to initiate the spark of creativity.

Our history

Back in the day, when I didn't have so many responsibilities the thought of not finding time to sew wasn't even a thought.

A few years on, as a business owner and mother of a wonderful 3 year old daughter, along with looking after the home I have experienced the lack of time I have to sew. Time once spent sewing hours-on-end have gone awry because life is simply so busy and so I realised that I needed to take out time to sew.
In the precious well-earned sewing time that I managed to fit into my schedule, there were many times when I just didn't have the right fabric or notions to complete my project and I felt annoyed. Frequently, I had my daughter eagerly expecting her "mother-made" dress to be ready whilst I waited for the elastic, buttons, zips and trims I needed for her dress to come through the post.
Reality is, that whilst most of us would happily drive 11 miles to the nearest craft shop and spend 2 hours and a lot of money, its just not possible when you have nappies to change, baby milk to buy and 5pm meetings to attend.

I felt there should be a more efficient way to utilize the time I have to sew. And Tailortime was founded.

I have curated children's dressmaking kits with high-quality items all in one box. Each kit has the basics such as thread, needle, pins, tracing paper plus all the required items like trims and notions to sew any one variation of the pattern included in the kit. These ready-to-sew kits will allow you to start sewing once they reach your doorstep so both you and your child will be happy!

Our vision is to help others with three main objectives.
