Welcome Sewists

As we are still in the planning stages for Chicago Frocktails 2020, we don’t have too much to share but…stay tuned as we’re getting closer to revealing the date and place!

Panel 1


Chicago Frocktails is making it’s debut, Spring 2020! Frocktails is an event for sewists to get together, make new friends, and admire each other’s finest handmade outfits over delicious cocktails. Inspired by other Frocktails parties around the world, our group of volunteers is hosting our first Chicago Frocktails event in 2020.

We welcome sewists of all abilities from the Greater Chicago area, and beyond.

Details are currently in the works, but you can expect delicious cocktails (with non-alcoholic options available, of course!), nibbles, prizes and beautiful handmade garments to gaze upon!

Event Highlights


Tickets will be available once our date and venue are set!

Every penny will go towards making Chicago Frocktails a wonderful event. Any proceeds from this event will be given to a local charity.

Location & Date

This is such a big decision and we will be announcing soon!


We want you to wear something you feel both comfortable and fabulous in. Despite the name, no dresses are required. Wear the most frosting of a dress or the most comfortable jumpsuit. Are you just beginning and don’t feel like you have the skills to make something? Wear something that you aspire to make yourself and our lovely community will not only help you muster up the courage but also recommend patterns, fabrics and more.
