Gussied Up Lady Engineer

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.

The seersucker is a bit less fancy than many of the Maisies I’ve seen, but I’m looking forward to taking try ons.
