The Violette Field Threads Maisie showed up just in time for our upcoming train themed birthday party. O gets a new pair of striped overalls traditional for engineers. A’s lady engineer gear will be a Maisie in royal blue seersucker.
Premade white bias tape might have made this a bit fancier, but I decided to make my own. The pattern gives instructions for making bias tape. Starting with a larger square would mean longer strips and less piecing with the added bonus of fun striped bias tape leftovers. Starting with a 60″ square may have been overkill. I had leftovers from the 2 finished strips on the top and a pile of cut strips leftover. No bias tape seams were required.
My first exposed zipper, my are they easy.
The seersucker is a bit less fancy than many of the Maisies I’ve seen, but I’m looking forward to taking try ons.
