About Dreaming Amelia

Greetings from Portland!


My name is Amie and I am the founder, designer and sewist behind Dreaming Amelia Designs. I began the business in Portland in 2008 as a dancewear and dance costuming creative adventure. After 10 years of applying a fashion-based approach to costuming, I decided to move beyond the dance world and expand my handmade creations into a growing streetwear collection. The resulting clothing line mixes the drama of dancewear with the super-casual, quirky style of the Pacific Northwest. My design aesthetic is inspired by edgy minimalism, asymmetry, curved lines and how they interact with the curves of the body, shapes and patterns I find on long nature walks… and, of course, the need for clothes to be ultra-comfy and wearable.

I carefully hand make every piece with quality, fit and comfort in mind. I hope you will love wearing your Dreaming Amelia clothing as much as I love creating it!


I am deeply committed to making Dreaming Amelia a sustainable brand at multiple levels by sourcing eco-friendly fabrics, using eco-friendly, low waste shipping supplies and minimizing overall waste.
