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.

polka dot library dresses

polka dot library dresses

each time I think I've blogged all my past projects another one surfaces. here is another one i found.

i was so smitten with the library dress pattern from oliver + s after making it first as instructed for maya, then with a zipper modification for nora and etta's back to school outfits, that it wasn't long before i made two more for nora and etta, this time from a simple purple polka dot cotton. 

these dresses were the first time i did two things: 1. line the entire bodice of the library dress, which i now do every time. 2. made and used my now signature label

here is etta in hers:

and here is nora in hers first at the driving range,

then playing a quick nine with gramps.

love, 

aunt maggie
