lil' man flannel

also known as lumberjack baby. 

some dear friends recently had a baby boy. seeing as the the father is an all american outdoorsmen who likely sings the national anthem every night as a lullaby, we thought a little flannel for the little guy would be appropriate.

this fabric was purchased last summer when we went to jackson hole wyoming for a wedding. by the way in my opinion jackson hole has to be the most beautiful place in the continental united states.

there is the national elk refuge 

the view from the lodge at grand teton national park

and jenny lake in grand teton national park

inspired yet?

anyways originally from jackson hole, this fabric was left over from a shirt i made vic a few months back. using the sketchbook shirt pattern (also available for bigger kids) from oliver + s with a few minor modifications: a snap on the cuff (instead of a button) for practicality purposes,

moving all the button holes down for a more open collar and easier chin wiping,

finally french seams on the sides, and a a hand stitched hem.

the yoke construction was a little tricky, but totally worth it because it comes together with such a clean finish. here is the back:

the buttons were an etsy purchase from heaven spun creations and are my favorite part. 

enjoy your shirt little guy!
