The Maker's Atelier Wrap Dress - 15th January 2022 FULLY BOOKED

Not available


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 refining them on the premise that the simplest shapes, in beautiful fabrics, make the most successful clothes.
