Are you a Seattle area sewist? Do you like parties? If your answer is 'yes' to both of those questions, come join us for Seattle Frocktails! We've been inspired by Frocktails events around the world, and we're organizing our own fabulous party for local sewists in the fall.

Hi Seattle area sewists! Details for Saturday's sewing bonanza!

1. See map (swipe) for parking. There should be lots at Mcmenamins; otherwise use the stadium

2. We're in the pink Thorndike room on map. Best to come in the back way, marked on there and we don't have access until 11am, so don't come early! 😊 I'll put balloons up to make it obvious.

3. Food: you can bring lunch/snacks from home or buy it there. Please just don't order pizza or similar! Lunchbox type food is good!

4. Dinner is at 6.30pm at Poquitos - 2 mins walk away.

5. If you happen to have, and can bring, a folding table, we might need an extra. Not sure! Otherwise bring what you'd like to work on! I'm taking an iron/ironing board and some cutting mats. Also my serger.
6. Any questions, give me a shout in the comments.

Excited!! 😁 #seattlesews #seattlesewsmeetups #washingtonsews #handmadewardrobe #ilovesewing

#mmmay18 day 31: MeMadeYay we made it! Here I am in my @tillybuttons Arielle skirt which I like but don’t wear a great deal. I should change that. Side note: it is JUNE in just over an hour and I am still wearing tights. What’s happened to the sun? Well done to everyone who took part in Me Made May this year - it’s been inspiring and envy-inducing to see all the gorgeous outfits this month. And thanks to @sozoblog for organising! 🎉🥇👊 #sewing #sewcialists #sewcialist #isew #isewmyownclothes #handmadewardrobe #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #sewersofinstagram #instasew #dressmaking #diyfashion #handmade #sewingblogger #seattlesews #ootd #americasews #washingtonsews #memadeeveryday #memademay

#mmmay18 day 30: those creases look worse than they are. I’m in my @deer_and_doe_patterns anchor print Chardon skirt today. I love this skirt but it’s getting a bit worse for wear around the zip, so I’m considering a) making another and b) recycling the fabric for a bag lining or something, cos it is super cute.

#mmmay18 day 29: it’s hard to tell, but that’s a @colettepatterns Zinnia skirt I have on. To my left is the detritus of Taco Tuesday. Made my own chicken tinga this evening and it’s pretty damn tasty.

Daphne top with flutter sleeves and tie straps by @madeformermaids for my daughter. Fabric from a deep sale on @girlcharlee a few months ago. Such a simple make with. I’ve details, and I still have 5 yards of the fabric left...what next? .

#mmmay18 day 27: it’s a lovely day in Portland and we’ve been having a mooch around Alberta, where we had lunch. I’m in my favourite @deer_and_doe_patterns Plantain and some rtw jeans.

#mmmay18 day 26: we’re in Portland, obvs. Had to stick a filter on this to lighten up a dark photo but I’m in my pink @sewoveritlondon Alex shirt. From the City Break ebook, on a city break...

#mmmay18 day 23: Are you sick of Plantains yet? Stripy pink Plantain on top, Jennifer Lauren Handmade Cressida skirt on the bottom. I say this every year, but I bloody love this skirt. Goes with everything, works for summer and winter, and has survived near constant rotation since I made it four (?) years ago.

#mmmay18 day 22: my sexy post-run look part 2. I lopped off half the leg from the @helens__closet #averyleggings to make these shorts. I haven’t got the length quite right - the hem sits right on my knee which is a little irritating when I run, so I’ll probably take them up an inch or so. The fabric is from @shoplamercerie and is their heavyweight activewear jersey. It’s really good quality (feels like I’m being held in everywhere) and it’s moisture-wicking so it’s really comfy.

#mmmay18 day 19: watched a replay of the Royal Wedding with the Girl Scouts this afternoon (no way was I getting up at silly o’clock to watch it live), and put on my @sewoveritlondon Penny dress for the occasion. Now full of scone and macarons.

#mmmay18 day 18: trying out the newest restaurant on the street for date night. Nice tacos, good guac and a tasty margarita. All in a Blackwood cardi and a self drafted top.

#mmmay18 day 17: my sexy post-run look. Took my new @helens__closet Avery space pants out for a spin this evening. They stayed up and were comfortably tight all the way round, but this fabric is definitely for the winter. I am warmer than usual and I don’t think it’s from the exertion! It’s ok though, cos my space pants are still awesome.

#mmmay18 day 16: double @tillybuttons with a Cleo dress and an Agnes top. A lady in the supermarket said she liked my dress today and now she’s my favourite person. #sewingcleo #sewingagnes

#mmmay18 day 15: a @byhandlondon Zeena dress. I wear this year round, but usually with tights... might be part of the reason it feels shorter than I remember.

On the blog: I AM WEARING SPACE PANTS! I made these @helens__closet Avery leggings and they bring me so much joy! Inspired by a Saturday Night Live sketch, these pants are a tour of the solar system!
Look at my pants with the eyes in your face/ My legs are covered in outer space!

#MMMay18: out for my dinner in my stripy Plantain. They’ve just switched the fire pit on and I don’t know why cos it is nice and warm here in Seattle today. 🔥🔥🔥

#MMMay18 day 11: yet more jeans and t-shirt in this here @sewoveritlondon Molly top. Had a lot of nice comments about this today, prob cos the winking eye fabric is kinda fun.

#MMMay18 day 10: goofy smiles in my @papercutpatterns Coppélia top. With black jeans it feels like school uniform but from a cooler school than I went to. Side note: our uniform was all black and my grandma thought it’d make us all look like crows. I miss my grandma. She came out with that kind of gold all the time.
