Maisie is a 1950s-style fit and flare dress – straight out of Mrs Maisel’s wardrobe. Feminine and universally flattering, Maisie is your go-to when you want to feel a little fancy, day or night! It’s all about fabric choice. Cotton lawn makes for a lovely daytime look, but if you’re dressing up for a fancy party or wedding, you’ve got the option to go all-out with a dazzling brocade. If you love a print, Maisie also works beautifully made in an Ankara fabric!
Fitted snuggly with darts, the bodice features a fixed wrap front, which pleats into the side seams. The raglan sleeves are shaped with darts over the shoulder for a fantastic fit. The back bodice mirrors the front with a bra-friendly v-shaped neckline. The bodice is fitted to the waist for that classic 50s’ look. The skirt is a half circle, skimming over the tummy and hips with no added bulk. It’s designed to finish just below the knee, but it can of course be lengthened or shortened to suit you. Maisie closes at the back with an invisible zip and the neckline is bias bound for a flawless finish.
