Jen Rocket

Sewing has been a part of my family for generations and I am proud to continue this legacy.

My journey with sewing on a machine started at the age of five and basically never stopped. There are infinite ways to combine fabrics, notions, and thread. The real magic is which ones, where they go, and for what purpose. I love learning through doing--trying new equipment, new techniques, experimenting with new fabrics, all the while gathering knowledge and experience.

I told everyone I could about the story of the dress and Jen’s amazing talent. I would absolutely recommend Jen Rocket to everyone and anyone who has a special design project. Jen was a huge part in making my wedding day unforgettable and so special, and I am so grateful to her.

I approached Jen during the beginning stages of my company for her expertise in soft goods and product development. She quickly became a cornerstone of my team as she provided advice on existing design features, developed new ideas, and helped get the product to the manufacturing stage.

Jen has a wide understanding and grasp of product development from idea through reality and the talent to make it happen. She adds value from research and prototyping through optimizing design for production. She has been an asset in building the Spand-Ice product line.
— Helen Behn, Spand-ice

Jen listened to my ideas and she researched period-style gowns to inspire us. We looked at a bunch of photo inspirations online and she came up with a few designs, all of which were just exactly what I had pictured my whole life. She made a dress that just looked like me—which I think also shows how well she reads people, their personalities, and what will make their body and personality really stand out when making a design. She’s a true artist. Incorporating my mother’s dress just made us both so excited and added a whole other element to the design.

The whole process of making the dress and seeing it at various stages was exciting. Seeing it finished was just like seeing my imagination come to life. I can’t believe Jen’s talent. When I put it on the day of the wedding, it felt like it was the dress that I was supposed to wear on my wedding day.
