P'leisurewear by Ingrid Louise….
I’m Ingrid Thompson, and more than 20 years ago I had an idea for a business - comfortable, cotton sleepwear for women.
I found a simple pattern and I bought some pretty fabric and started making individual items. First for myself and my mum, my sister and my aunt. People started saying "Where did you get that? It's gorgeous" and then when I said I made them, they asked "Could you make one for me, for my sister, for my mum, for my friend"
And that's how it started.
Before I knew it, I hired a seamstress to help me sew. I'd found a pattern-maker so I could have different sizes. Fortunately with sleep wear it's not too "fitted" and certainly these were roomy and comfy!
Then I was at the markets every weekend and taking orders. Things were going well.
