The Maker's Atelier -Utility Jacket  - 12th & 13th August 2019 Zoom

The Maker's Atelier -Utility Jacket - 12th & 13th August 2019


Frances Tobin started The Maker’s Atelier because she loves designing and making clothes. Frances was taught dressmaking by her mother, and it's been her passion ever since. After training as a fashion and textiles designer, Frances went on to work for many leading brands in Italy, the US and the UK and still makes most of her own clothes. 

The patterns Frances has created for The Maker's Atelier are influenced by current fashion trends. Taking key shapes and refineing them on the premise that the simplest shapes, in beautiful fabrics, make the most successful clothes.  

I will be runing a series of workshops using The Maker's Atelier patterns, the workshops price will include the Utility Jacket pattern


The clean lines of this Utility Jacket capture this season's smarter casual mood.

Details include deep cuffs and hem with integrated pockets. The back is subtly shaped with the slide adjusters.
