Frequently Asked Questions


Frocktails is a community event for sewists to get together, make new friends and admire each other’s handmade outfits over a cocktail. It started approx. 10 years ago in Melbourne and has since been adopted in countries and cities around the world.

There is no theme. The idea is that you wear something you have made yourself. You can sew a new garment if you like, but it’s also a great opportunity to wear an older outfit that you feel deserves another outing. And despite the name, you don’t have to wear a dress. We want this to be an inclusive event, so wear what makes you happy!

We welcome sewists and makers of all abilities. You are welcome if you are new to sewing and not made any garments yet. Anyone can join in!

Absolutely! It is a great way to meet other people who love sewing as much as you, and a great conversation starter is ‘I love your outfit!’
