Yards and yards of material, at least 2 great sewing machines, scads of needles, miles of thread, a good pair of shears, a small pair of snipping scissors, a seam ripper, a bobbin, possibly buttons, snaps, zippers, velcro, dress dummy, fray check, hem tape, a serger, a gross of good sharp pins, good lighting, a large table for cutting, and about $20,000 for a start.

Baby Goin' Places--for the baby on the go!  Slings, pocketchangers, custom clothing, and now custom monogramming and embroidery!

Gosh, there a bunch of things you need before you even GET to the sewing part.

Not knowing what you know about creating clothing or your style or your ability to market your finished wares makes me hesitant to spend time formulating an answer.

What do you plan to make, how much all the materials cost, what kind of time you can devote to sales and creation...if you do a search in this forum topic using the word "starting", for example, there are many responses to this kind of question.
