The amount of detail you need to include in a seamstress business plan depends entirely on the operation itself and the funding source that will review the business plan. If you are presenting to a bank, the only thing you will need to show inside the document itself is a solvent business model with sufficient cash flow in the projections to service the loan over a 5-7 year payoff period. Provided you have decent credit and/or sufficient collateral to satisfy underwriting requirements, the plan itself can be fairly basic. For angel investors the scrutiny may be more severe, and so your business plan should provide more detail and offer some insights into the industry and the competitive landscape:
• What individuals or shops will you compete against? As a freelance seamstress, what threats do you face? What opportunities?
• How will you market your services to the target audience in the region?
• Will you need any staff and if so, when do they come on board and at what rate?
• What break-even point do you envision for the business?
Your seamstress plan can be quite challenging is you don't have access to salient market and industry data or are not sure how to paint a compelling picture in the pro forma model. Investors in particular can demand a level of research that is difficult to assemble on your own. That is where MasterPlans comes in.
