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.

i'm nothing if not predictable.

a co-worker recently had a baby boy so guess what i made him?

yep another lil' man flannel (aka the sketchbook shirt from oliver + s). i used a beautiful plaid from britex. seriously fabric like this is why i am sewing through my stash, i want all my fabric to be this beautiful and fun to sew.

there isn't much i can say about this pattern that i haven't said here, here, here, and here. so let's just do pictures. 

first up the collar,

and the placket.

my standard lumber jack buttons from this etsy shop. (vic says he could make them if i he got a band saw. #anyexcuseforanewpowertool)

finally the cuffs,

the back pleat,

and shirt tail hem.
