Customer Inspiration: Anne

I know it's my job to try and inspire my customers, but more often than not it is they who end up inspiring me.

And I don't think anyone would put up too much of a holler if I went out on a limb and said that Miss Anne here is my biggest inspiration.

She gets a LOT of sewing/knitting/embroidery (you name it, she does it) done: that in and of itself is an inspiration.

And not a day goes by that I don't see her around town wearing one of her creations.

She talks the talk and she walks the walk.

Here she is wearing a head-to-toe handmade ensemble.

A really cute sweater knit from our Amy Butler Organic Belle DK yarn in the indigo colorway...

...the pattern is the Spring Garden Tee by Alana Dakos and you can find it here on Ravelry...

And the skirt is from the cover of the book Sew Serendipity.

You have GOT to love those ruffles.

I get excited by a good use of a ruffler foot and I believe we have a prime example here.

I may or may not have ruffle envy.

I believe the focal print in this skirt is an Australian design and the ruffles are made from some Amy Butler quilting weight solid, the beauty of which being that the Amy Butler solids match the Amy Butler yarns perfectly, which is also the kind of thing I find very exciting.

Thanks so much for sharing your handiwork, Anne!

Keep up the good work and I'll continue to document the fabulousness!

Too funny! I was in your shop a week or so ago & Anne was also. My mom & I commented on her dress & how pretty it was. She told us she had made several from a pattern she had bought there. They were adorable! Would even look great over jeans!
