|Anika's Romper that Alicia made and added an extra ruffe on there! So cute and perfect for Autumn.|
When we wrote Alicia yesterday about being our very first BotM she was very excited--as were we. We had a great interview with her that you can read below!
Create Kids Couture: When did you start sewing and why did you start?
Alicia: I started sewing about 8 years ago. I wanted to make simple valences for my bedroom windows. That small project lead to other small projects and eventually I got brave enough to start making clothes for myself.
CKC: Why did you start Alicia's Sew Amazing Creations?
Alicia: When I started sewing more for people I realized I loved sewing. It wasn't until I found Whimsical Willows and Tutu Cute and a few other pages on facebook that I thought I may actually be able to make clothes and sell them so I went all in and started my business.

CKC: What inspires you?
Alicia: My inspiration comes from everywhere. I am a very visual person. For example, I may look at a toy and see something in it I like and from there look for fabrics that remind of it. I also get inspired from looking at other businesses. There is some major talent on Facebook and Etsy.
CKC: Who is your favorite fabric designer or what is your favorite fabric line?
Alicia: Right now, I love Dena Designs. There are so many I like but I'm drawn to her lines right now.

CKC: What is the outfit you are most proud of and why (this doesn't have to be made using a CKC pattern either?)
Alicia: The outfit I am most proud of would definitely be the Sophia Dress and ruffle butt pants. I was so pleased with how it turned out.
CKC: What is your favorite CKC pattern?
Alicia: LOL. This question is one that can't be answered. I currently have about 13 CKC patterns. I absolutely LOVE them ALL!! I have never run across patterns like these. They are easy to read, easy to execute. I can honestly say I am addicted.
