Our New Tech Packs Are Here
We’re on the move friends!
I could barely contain my excitement this week when our new tech packs arrived. My first tech packs were completed in March last year – I actually can’t believe it – over a year ago! I produced them in a bit of a mish-mashed way: I hired a designer to complete my CADs (I sent her garments as guides), I did a lot of the measurement work myself (thinking I hope this fits someone!) and then sent them out to start ‘courting’ manufacturers.
Looking back, it’s one of those things I had to do to prove I was serious. Having a tech pack is a bit of an industry requirement when it comes to producing clothing. Saying this, one of the most annoying things I found trying to select the correct template and put one together. There isn’t actually a recognised industry standard. There are basic components which really should be included, but everyone pretty much has their own format.
Why get my manufacturers to produce them this time round?
Those March 2019 tech packs were useful for finding a manufacturer. However, since settling on one, I’ve decided it would be best for them to draw up new tech packs. I had a couple of reasons for this:
So they’re done! And my samples and prototypes are in the works too. I’m hoping I’ll be able to share some images – maybe even some real life garments – with you soon.

The Coach Approach
It’s been two weeks since I’ve written. I’m still going through a phase where I’m struggling to find balance and spend my time in an optimal way – the quest for boundaries continues. However it’s fine, I’m here, I’m well and many positive things have happened. One of which is that I’ve found a Coach. …
I officially formed Mummy’s Muse as a company in March 2017. This means that I’ve technically been at this thing for just over two years. Sometimes this makes me feel so …. frustrated/upset/resigned/bewildered…I could go on. How has it taken me two years and I feel like I have so little to actually show for …
