The Blanca Flight Suit is a semi-fitted, highly customizable boiler suit pattern inspired by vintage workwear. With multiple sleeve and leg options, it can be made in a variety of fabrics and can easily be styled up or down.

Blanca features a center front zipper, patch pockets that double as belt loops, an optional tie belt or buckled belt, a traditional shirt collar and a unique pleated back design. Customize your flight suit by adding a long sleeve, tapered sleeve with snap button, or short sleeve. The leg is cut straight, with the option to crop it or taper at the hem with a leg tab. In addition, choose between a classic breast patch pocket or zippered pocket for added detail.

Home of the beautiful and unique

As a recovering fabric hoarder, the last thing I needed was to discover Maai Design store.
But it was love at first swipe.
An elegantly curated selection of fabric, easily searchable and complimented by a great selection of patterns.
I bought a black double cotton gauze I’d been searching for, a delicious green seersucker (very hard to find) and a longed for pattern from the Assembly Line. The indulgence came quickly and packaged beautifully.

Highly recommended - but slightly addictive.
Venture in at your peril!

Consistency

I’ve recently bought some beautiful double gauze for summer tops and dresses.
The quality of the fabrics are consistently high and the delivery reliable. One day my making might be too, it’s fun working towards that!
