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.

Sewing Level

Fabric Suggestions

We recommend light to medium weight woven fabrics for Maisie, such as cotton lawn, poplin, sateen, linen, viscose linen blends, stable seersuckers, chambray, stable crepes and brocade. We recommend avoiding anything too fluid such as viscose, as the dress requires some structure. Due to the half circle skirt, we advise against choosing fabric with a strong directional print.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

If you're using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.

Is this sewing pattern layered?

Yes! This pattern is layered so you can print off just the size(s) that you need. Find out more about layering here.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
