I may come back and edit this once I have them attached to their bags, but for now I just wanted to say thank you! They arrived promptly -- even though I ordered an extra one so you had to make another one and they are perfect. I couldn't be more pleased with this entire transaction. 💞

One-of-a-kind handmade clothing and accessories for one-of-a-kind folks!

'Amiable Creations' was founded in 2000 for those, like me, who enjoy standing out from the crowd. Inspired by the hippie music scene (past & present), I've enjoyed adding colorful patchwork and hand drawn appliques to many of my creations.

I'm a self-taught seamstress, mainly learning through trial and error... but, I've always loved to figure out how things are constructed. Even to this day when browsing through shopping racks, I study the garment... carefully inspecting how it was made.

I love incorporating new materials and techniques into my creations. I try to use recycled fabrics when possible, and have fun transferring old garments into something new.

Amy vs. Fabric won 'Best in Show' for Asheville's annual color ball in 2012 - The Tangerine Ball... Two outfits won 'Best in Show' for the Tangerine Tango, and a third dress won the Neo-Classic Tangerine Stylist Competition.

I am so honored to have one of my upcycled dresses featured on the cover of Altered Couture's Spring 2016 issue!
