Girl Charlee UK & Europe Customer Spolight: Harper and Carter, plus New Fabrics!!!

Our March Customer Spotlight is Harper and Carter...
Harper and Carter is the brainchild of the lovely Chloe Wiltshire.  

About Chloe:
I am 19 years old and I used to work in a school as a midday assistant and at an after school club. I wanted something to do while on maternity leave which is why I set up this business, I never expected to be doing as well as it is in under a year!
I set up Harper and Carter in June 2015 when I was 27 weeks pregnant with my son Carter and business took off really well. I started making blankets, bloomers, bibs etc. and it just grew from there. I'm now making literally anything you can think of when it comes to children's clothing. From leggings and scarves, to 'skorts' which are in my new summer collection and the ever popular 'Freddie' tee sets! 
Carter is now 4 and a half months and I don't have any plans on going back to my previous work as business is booming and I love being able to watch my son grow and learn. 
I have always loved sewing and always wanted to be able to make baby clothes, so I started off by downloading some free patterns to teach myself and now only months later I can draw out my own patterns and have started making adult sized leggings! 

The best part about what I do is receiving feedback and gorgeous photos from my happy customers. The other thing I love about running my own small business is being able to make clothing for Carter and other children and say 'I made that', but as I said before, being able to watch my boy grow while still earning money is by far the most important to me. 
I have so many plans for new things to make and ways to expand. I have already started my summer collection which I hope is going to be a big hit and I cannot wait to release it at the end of the month.
