About 4 years ago Stephanie (designer/developer) of World Stretch asked me (mom/Realtor/seamstress) to make her a pair of pants from some spandex material she’d been given by Jodi Head. I dutifully obliged and made a very simple pair of pants. She then sent me more material with a design of what she wanted. I begrudgingly obliged..it wasn’t a simple design.
When Stephanie wore her new pants out and about in New York City ( a place of wildly diverse fashion) she was surprised at how many people stopped and asked her where she bought her pants. She wondered if there was a market for “urban athletic wear”…something other than black. THERE WAS! World Stretch was born.
Then one day a young lady Stephanie met at Atlanta Rocks, by the name of Helen, or as we call her now, Super Helen, wanted a pair of World Stretch pants but…she was a young girl. No pants for girls. So the girls division of World Stretch was born.

ALL the material is purchased in the garment district of New York City by Stephanie. ALL THE PANTS are cut and sewn in New York City. ALL THE PANTS are designed by Stephanie for maximum comfort, fit and style. And I say with maximum “mom pride” that she is an excellent artist with an amazing “eye” for design, color and function.
Now I am back to what I enjoy, making fun stuff.
