“My princess Ferry is my inspiration for every design that I do. Her current favorite designs are the peasant dresses with pockets for her to keep her treasures in and skirt sets so she can twirl like a pretty princess, lol. Though I try to design around her personal style preferences I personally tend to lean more toward non-traditional colors when choosing fabrics.” – Christie

Designer Quote:


” I have been knitting since I was a child, but rarely created any children’s items – I just did not have much motivation. Well, when I had my own daughter, I started imagining all the cute things she could wear and this is how I started designing children’s clothes. And then I realized that it was exactly what I wanted to do in my life. I love coming up with something new and different. I find inspiration everywhere… my family, kids world, imagination, yarn, textures, nature… My new venture is that a couple months ago I decided try my hand at writing patterns and done a couple already. They are testing now and will be available for sale soon. I’m so excited about that and would be so honored to see my designs made by somebody else ;) ” – Alla Koval

“What I love most about designing is the excitement I get from looking at the finished product, and hearing feedback from my customers. For me it’s all about the little girl’s who will be wearing my designs. My love of fabric and my two girls are what inspire me. I love finding a new fabric and dreaming up a set to put on one of my little girls, and watching it come to life. I am having so much fun creating.”

December 3rd, 2007

Anna Bella DesignsOur Fashion Show features the designs of Aida from Anna Bella Designs this week. Vibrant colors, charming fabrics, loving details and much more go into her designs for little girls.

Designer Quote:


“My children are my inspiration. Watching them play and interact with one another fills me with such warmth and happiness. The innocence of a child’s laughter can quickly erase the stresses of every day life. This holds especially true when I’m able to see the excitement in my daughters’ eyes, Bella & Anna, every time I create a new set. To hear the squeal of joy as they ask each time in our native language, Danish, “Mommy, is that for me?” makes what I do a passion and not a hobby.

I enjoy creating everyday garments for girls. My philosophy is quite simple – clothing should be simple in design, yet colorful, as well as wearable and comfortable. “

-Aida Pedersen

Kick back and enjoy our featured Fashion Show of That Funky Boutique. Please feel welcome to leave comments for Angie as well.

Designer Quote:

Why I love doing what I do:
“I’ve always had a creative outlet and it just simply fulfills me. Being creative is in my blood, I guess! My mom upholstered furniture for a living and my dad builds houses and does woodwork….both self employed DIYers. As long as I can remember I was sewing mom’s upholstery fabric scraps into tiny animals…stuffing them with her leftover foam bits. And gluing whatever wood scraps and sawdust I found under my dad’s saws into whatever my imagination thought up. I’m thankful that they never minded my messes and crazy collages. In college, everyone knew to find me in the art building where my professors granted me my own studio space. That led me to a BFA and a career in graphic design. Though my hearts not in graphic design as much anymore, I still do freelance work for Chatti Patti And Knuckleheads Clothing. And now here I am sewing children’s clothing. Mmmmm, I’m rambling but I guess the point is, I don’t know any different and wouldn’t have it any other way. I just love to use the gifts that I’ve been given. And to have people want to purchase what I make? Icing on the cake.” – Angie Eisman

Designer Quote:
“The THRILL of a new design is what does it for me!! I love coming up with something new and different. I find inspiration EVERYWHERE…children, fabric, nature… My favorite designs are those that convey a little bit of humor…usually inspired by the things kids do. I enjoy challenging myself to create something unique that will fit the personality of some child out there. My favorite thing to do is applique. It’s my form of art. I love when I start something, not knowing exactly where it will end up, and then having something come to life in the end.” – Annette Bower

May 30th, 2007

Iza BellaThis week we indulge in the beautiful fashions from Lisa of Iza Bella. Lisa’s designs are rich in scrumptious detailing and personality. When asked about her love of design Lisa shares:

“I believe my love for design started at an early age. I remember watching both my grandmother (who taught me the basics) and my great grandmother sew. At different points in my life I aspired to have a creative job of some sorts. In high school, I wanted to be a fashion designer for women and in my early 20’s I wanted to be a interior designer. It wasn’t until I became pregnant with my daughter that I found my true calling. I talked my husband into buying me a sewing machine for our anniversary and I started sewing little sets for my daughter before she was even born.
I get my inspiration from everything (my children, trends, fabric, color, etc.) but when the ideas hit me it’s usually in the shower. There have been times when I had to jump out and sketch something before I lost it. That is after all the only true place that a mom can be alone with her thoughts….well, most of the time.” Lisa

Fashion Show – Vintage*Chic Boutique

May 19th, 2007

Vintage Chic boutique This week on Boutique Cafe, we’re pleased to bring you a Fashion Show highlighting the designs of Chelsea from Vintage Chic Boutique. Chelsea creates wonderful designs for little girls, from eclectic to traditional her love of great fabrics and beautiful details shine through.

When asked about her inspirations she says:
“I think because of the lack of creativity in my first 20 years of life, it is all just exploding out of me now! I starting sewing when I was about 20 years old and haven’t stopped since. I love fabric and I love the process of combining fabrics together and putting them into a design that is all my own. It is very rewarding to emerge from my sewing room after hours and hours of creating something and seeing the completed design on my model! I find inspiration everywhere. In my kids, flowers in the garden, magazines, and movies. I was watching a old movie the other day and saw the coolest dress on one of the actresses. I thought, “I need to make that for my next set!” I also draw from my own style and tastes. When something catches my eye, I take a mental note and then go from there.”

Get ready for some fun! This weeks Fashion Show highlights the whimsy and playfulness of designer Kip from Kippydoodles. We asked Kip about her inspiration for her designs:

“Hi, I’m Kip of kippydoodles boutique. I design mostly for the little fellows but my feminine side occasionally shows through with a girl’s design. I am inspired by the strangest things. Such as the giggle of my son, the intellectual thoughts that my daughter can come up with, and my love for color and spice. I have a tendency to think outside the box on my outfit themes and add a splash of humor to all of my boy designs. Applique is my passion. It reminds me of being a small child coloring in fun, whimsical coloring books. I am a member of the design group, LimeVine. These girls are so fatastic to work with and discuss the daily challenges of motherhood. We definately keep things fun but we are also a group of hard-working mommies determined to make a difference in the boutique community.”

Fashion Show – Fleur L’enfant

March 16th, 2007

We can’t stop the Classic Cuteness in our Fashion Show this week. Boutique Cafe is thrilled to share the scrumptious designs of Andrea from Fleur L’enfant. ENJOY!

We asked Andrea to share her inspirations with us:

“My mom loved to sew for our family and home creating beautiful window dressings and pillows as well as sweet little sets for the entire family. Although I appreciated all of the handmade creations, I was not interested in sewing until my first child was born. I began sewing little vintage chenille dresses for her and then was totally hooked. I began selling on ebay a year ago and have enjoyed every minute of it.

I love all things “vintage” and find most of my inspiration through vintage textiles, button, lace trimmings and even vintage garments. I love to hunt for something beautiful and unique and then cut it up and mix it with some new fabrics to create a very unique style with vintage details. I have designed entire outfits around a rhinestone pin or vintage lace. Each time I am inspired to challenge myself more and more. I love trying new things and lately I’ve been mixing up textures as well. I find it adds so much interest to a set and it’s so much fun working with the different textures.

I am thrilled to be part of a wonderful new design group of friends called LimeVine. I am thankful for all of my sweet buyers and appreciate their kindness. Thank you Daria and Megan for inviting me to the fashion show this week. I love my daily cup of couture!” – Andrea
