The Maker's Atelier Wrap Dress Zoom

The Maker's Atelier Wrap Dress - Including Fabric - 28th January 2018


Frances Tobin started The Maker’s Atelier because she love 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 Makers Atelier patterns, the workshops price will include the pattern, fabric, notions and also a tape measure and bag to take everything home in.


The perfect wrap jersey dress in two versions – wrapped and tied or with a fixed crossover front.  The sleeves are designed to be fashionably overlong but look just as good worn on the wrist.
