hi, i'm maggie.

{like the rod stewart song}

i'm a quirky millennial living in the bay area who loves dark beer, hiking, exposed brick, and creative endeavors, in particular sewing for my four nieces: nora, etta, maya, and neela.

remember that awesome fabric combo i came up with for maya's second playdate dress? well i had a fair amount of fabric left over and i was at a loss for what to make with it. 

then i remembered the book report dresses i had made a year earlier. maybe the cut of the pattern that worked so well with the busy and bold ikat would also work with the tessellation print.  

i was right... 

nice expression nora.

however my nieces are strange and like to where this dress backwards.

I would say it was just a whim these two have but maya also likes to wear the dress this way.

has anyone else experienced a similar quirk with this dress?
