Customer Questions and Answers


I am also on the Straw bandwagon. There isn't a yellow close to this that I can tell. Holland maybe but that is very heavy...Do you ever see Straw coming back?

Martha • May 16, 2024

Is the color straw ever going to be available in a midweight linen?

Charity • October 17, 2023

Hi! The straw color is only available on our 4C22 base at this time.

Ohhh, what color yellow is the skirt with the white top!?! It is a gorgeous shade! I used to have a dress that color and I loved it! It was the only yellow that actually looked good on me. :)

Heather • September 1, 2023

The color is Straw on our 4C22 100% linen fabric :)

Any plans to bring Straw 4C22 back? It's the best color for all seasons. Your other yellows don't even come close. I'm not alone. You've got lots of customers waiting for this one to return.

I second that comment. Straw was one of the best colors you ever had. PLEASE bring it back!

Barbara • May 26, 2023

Thank you so much. I really hope you get it back in, it is a really pretty color. I will keep watching for it to come back. Tracie North

Tracie • April 5, 2023

Hi, will the straw 4C22 ever come back in stock? I really love the 2 colors of the top and skirt together on this pattern. Thank you Tracie North

Hello, The Straw is out of stock, but we do have a new color called golden grain which is a lovely similar color. Here is the link:

Lauren • November 15, 2022

I really like this pattern. I would really like to know what kind of linen and color the Yellow skirt and beige top is. How do I find this out?

Hello, The blouse is made up in Tadelakt IL019, and the skirt is Straw, 4C22.

Lauren • November 1, 2022

I ordered the pattern today. I didn't realize it came with 3 free yards. If this is true, can I give you my fabric choice?

Not A Petite Friendly Pattern

First let me say I'm an expert sewist with four decades of experience. I can make wedding gowns, tailored jackets, dress, skirts, bathing suits, pants - everything. I found this pattern so frustrating that I threw out my project for the Lily blouse. F-S patterns have no reference points to be able to petite this pattern for myself. The lack of a front and back waist marking and a bust point marking as in traditional patterns is maddening for anyone like me who needs to make petite size modifications. And no, I do not need to contact F-S for support with my level of expertise - a $45 patterns really needs to have better drafting and reference points for modifications. I will remain a loyal F-S fabric customer but I'll never touch your patterns again.

This is a follow up to my not so good review

This is a follow up to my review above which I feel now was hastily given before fully understanding. I have received several emails addressing all my questions and I have made the decission to take my time and follow all of Lauren's expert recommendations! Thanks so much Lauren!

Second Thoughts on the Blouse

I was very happy with the blouse until I tried to actually wear it. My measurements fit the size 6. But, since the bottom of the armscye is quite low (bust level) and my elbow catches the sleeve cuff, whenever I bend back my elbows a little, it tugs across the front placket. Just not comfortable. I could stitch the placket together toward the bottom for modesty, but the awkward tugging feeling will still be there. Luckily I didn't use amazing fabric, but still I enjoyed all the details in the blouse and am sad that I won't be wearing the blouse. However I am wearing the skirt a lot!

Hello, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the fit of the Blouse. All of our premium patterns come with complimentary fit advice which can include assistance with pattern adjustment. It's also advisable with all patterns to create a trial to check the fit and make adjustments to suit your personal preferences and body shape. What may suit one person with the same body measurements may not suit you. For this reason, we decided to offer the fit advice to help seamstresses discover their repertoire of adjustments to help them make a truly personalised and unique item of clothing, that fits your body :)

Well described, care given to details

Overall, the printed instruction plus this tutorial are very clear! (Especially helpful when making the pockets and the blouse.) I thoroughly enjoy new ways to make pockets and plackets. Love this pattern with details well designed. However there are a few places where they conflict with each other. The tie belt pattern piece says to cut 2, and this tutorial also uses both pieces. But the printed instructions only uses one piece of tie belt. If I had looked more closely to this tutorial, I'd have noticed that the belt is wrapped around the model's waist twice. Oh well, my using only one piece for the tie is long enough to go around once and hang some. I made the blouse and the skirt. The photo in the printed booklet shows skirt belt loops as does the drawing, but the written instructions tell us that the skirt does not have belt loops; however, the pattern layout for cutting does show belt loops to be cut. Lastly, the pattern piece for belt loops says to cut 3. I learned that I only needed to cut one and that that piece (as shown in this tutorial) is then cut into thirds. Veryhappy with my skirt!

Of all the Fabric Store pattern collections, I'd been circling back time and time again on the Lily. The Lily collection is a generous set of Henley placket dress, tunic, shirt, and additional skirt. The looks are timeless. The techniques you can learn through Fabric Store patterns are top-notch. But more than anything, this set gives you a fantastic base to launch your creativity.

Emily • August 1, 2023

I like everything in this collection: the dress, the skirt and the tunic, I haven't come across any pattern similar to this one on the net so giving thanks to the designers on a good job for this pattern.

Karina • May 4, 2023

LILY dress - inspired by traditional shirtdresses, this pullover dress features a button placket, side slits and has a modest length of approximately 51" from the shoulder. It has a loose-fitting silhouette that can be tied at the waist with a belt. Made in IL019 Wildcherry 100% Linen. Tutorial with sewing steps can be found here:

Rima • October 2, 2020

This is one of the first patterns I used from your company to make this lovely tunic (Lily pattern). Although I made many errors, I was able to recover from them and the fabric was very forgiving. I used IL019 Kenya

Josette • September 2, 2020

The instructions are clear and easy to understand. Everything from fabric cutting tips to the step-by-step guide was perfectly demonstrated in the detailed graphics. I didn't need to make any alterations because the design is a looser fit so sizing is a bit easier to decide on. The size I chose worked perfectly for my body and if I decide I want to have a slimmer fit, I'll choose to do one size smaller for my next version. This LILY Blouse is made with IL019 Red Ochre linen
