The six pieces in the Julia collection are inspired by the romantic allure of a full-volume, three-tiered maxi skirt. Mix it up by using contrast fabric for each tier or shorten the length to two tiers and add front patch pockets for a fun on-the-go look.  Pair it with the included cropped wrap top, with two sleeve options or go sleeveless.

Should I take a high body measurement for the bust or full bust measurement for the bust. I've never sewn a fabric store pattern before. Thank you!

The listed body measurements are for the full bust. This is based on a B-cup at sizes 2-16 and a D-cup for sizes 18-24. If your bust size differs from these cup sizes take your high bust measurement and add 2" for a B-cup and 4" for a D-cup and use that measurement in place of your full bust. You may need to adjust the pattern if this is the case.

Nice idea not Practical!

I love your patterns but not so much the booklet its not practical and the price of the patterns it should come cut out already or perferated . the instructions should be on a ring so one, could easily flip through the instructions. I tell trying to put the pattern pieces back in the roll is challenging but i can deal with that. Thank you.

most spectacular pattern experience

I like to call this a good foundation pattern. It is a great advanced beginner-friendly pattern. In addition, it also provides you with a base to hack, alter and modify into a set that works for you. For example, you can shorten the bottom tier to make it a midi skirt or add volume to a sleeve to make a puff sleeve. You can also pair the set separately with jeans, shorts or a simple t-shirt to build on that holiday capsule wardrobe. I am looking forward to living in these comfy separates all summer long!

Another fun pattern. Highly recommend.

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

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.

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.

The JULIA wrap top and tiered skirt collection is a gorgeous duo to make. Both pieces are beginner friendly in their construction and infinitely wearable.

The Julia skirt in mid weight Wisteria and the LB Pullover in Bleached heavy weight linen.

Dana • March 22, 2022

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.

Rima • June 22, 2021

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.
