Another fun pattern. Highly recommend.
Reviewer: Dana

I was a bit hesitant to buy this pattern as I didn't know if was age appropriate for a middle age woman, but I love it. The wrap top and skirt are easy to make thanks to the excellent directions. I enjoy wearing the short, two-tier skirt (shown in IL019 mid weight Wisteria) with the LB Pullover top from Paper Theory (shown in 4C22 Bleached heavy weight linen). I am 5'5" and the length falls just below my knees. I like wearing the wrap top with the Akira pant and with jeans.

Mariann profile image I LOVE this top
Reviewer: Mariann

Firstly, I have to say the drafting of the Fabrics Store patterns is exemplary. This is the 4th purchased F-S pattern I have made this Spring/Summer and am always delighted to find that things line up and very few adjustments every have to be made. When I do, it is a result of my lack of care in tracing or cutting. My first make of the Julia pattern set is a sleeveless version in the gloriously dark Dress Blue Softened IL019. From 3 yards I was able to cut 1 pair of Anna Allen Clothing Pomona pants (as calf length) I pair of the same patter as shorts, both size 14 (for hips) and a size 10 Julia top. My intent was to emulate the so popular jumpsuit look without actually being a jumpsuit. I finished the pants weeks ago but had not yet progressed to the top. Finished it this morning and it is WONDERFUL. I like the dress blue so much, I have ordered more in hopes the dye will match. I may make a wrap shirt and a mid-sleeve top to extend the season. I am definitely making more Julia tops, might lengthen a bit, I am absolutely planning to make more Julia/bottom combos. Love the look.

Reviewer: Clara

Love the looks in this pattern, but it's not first on the list; I'm booked several projects ahead. Excited to get to it though -- I'll update when I've actually made one or two of the garments.

Perfect pattern
Reviewer: charlotte

I got out of my cast and immediately cut out the Julia top. The pattern is perfect! I have never had all the notches and edges line up perfectly, probably me, but this pattern went together perfectly. Not anything off the least little bit once I cut it out. The waist is a little short, but I am long waisted, so I will fix that on the next pattern. I used a challis print to make the bias for the front, and it really looks special with the black linen. I'm planning to make several more. A quick sew that really shows off you top-stitching skills. Next up, a bleached IL019 with embroidery on it!

Never disappointed
Reviewer: charlotte

I'm not able to sew yet, due to an accidental injury, but I've opened and studied the pattern. I am never disappointed with Fabrics-Store purchases. Whether it is a pattern or fabric, I know it will be quality. The support from the website is superb! Many more happy linen garments and furnishings coming our way.

Uncluttered wrap top
Reviewer: Linda

I made the short-sleeved top out of IL020 linen. I had to get a serger and learn how to thread it, but the top turned out great. I appreciated having multiple sizes in pattern so that I could grade up to the next size in the waist. I thought the process of sewing the waistband was novel and worked out well. I have more of your linen and will make more tops. I want to be the woman in that red skirt, but I have not decided if I could pull off the drama. I may make the skirt anyway!

I am, admittedly, a creature of habit. Once I discover a style that works for me, I just add more of it to my wardrobe. This is exactly what happened when I discovered the beauty of a wrap top! For me, nothing beats the wrap top when it comes to comfort and ease. It just so feminine and flattering on any body-type as it hugs your curves in all the right places.

Here is the Julia skirt in midi length coupled with the Charlie top. For the Julia skirt I used Signature Finish Bleached middle weight linen. I took 6 inches off the bottom tier and 3 inches off the middle tier to get to a midi length. I am 5'5" I am very happy with the result! Hardest part is a table big enough to cut the long tiers. Pattern instructions are great as with all your patterns. I have a beautiful skirt with a linen lining (Store bought skirts line with polyester) which I will last all my life! Wonderful

My love for surplice tops continues as I added the JULIA Wrap Top in FS POTTING SOIL brown linen. This pattern includes so many of my favorite elements; an elegant wrap top, bias binding neckline, and a tie closure along the waistline. Like so many of FS sewing patterns, this pattern is roomy and comfortable but still feels high-end and timeless. The yoke and set sleeve remind me of a classic men's button-down shirt, while the gathers and cropped hem give it a feminine twist. The top tapers slightly and hugs the waist at the perfect spot when paired with a high-rise bottom. I always love the combination of a flowy linen top with structured denim and leather boots.
