Back in the early 1960's Julie hired me as her model for her showroom in NYC. She then was a rep for several California designers. I have fond memories of my time working for her. She is a lovely woman.

What a terrific article. And what an inspiring story. Like other commenters, I love how she came to use felt out of necessity. Thank you, Ms. FuzzyLizzie, for finding this amazing woman and bringing her to us.

I've been waiting for this post after your teaser earlier on, and it doesn't disappoint! What an amazing life this lady has lead - and I'm pleased to discover that she's still going strong.

As a hopeless seamstress she is an inspiration to me. Congratulations on your interview and such a great article.

Your blog is terrific, Lizzie. I always learn so much from you. Until today, I didn't know who Juli Lynne was. What a talented woman and quite a beauty, too!
Thanks, Lizzie.

Love the article, thanks so much for the great information and pictures. I would also like to read her memoirs.

I love the stories behind the clothes, like the fact that she used felt b/c she didn't know how to sew, or Lilly Pulitzer using bright patterns to cover up juice stains. I learn something new every day- thanks for this one!

Great story! I am going to try and fit in a blurb on Juli Lynn in my Masters Thesis, which is on women in Rockabilly music but also about women who stood out in the 50s.

Another Lizzie blog fan here & this is a great article!

Juli Lynne is not only gorgeous (to this day) but so inspiring & so talented & creative. I love her spirit as much as her clothes and I too will be looking forward to her memoirs.

I love how this whole article evolved & the info is great. Another winner!

Another wonderful and informative post, Lizzie! Thank you so much--I didn't know the story of the poodle skirt. Inspiring story, and that photo of Ms. Charlot with Harpo Marx is hilarious! I love the pink elephants skirt pictured here.

What a great article, Lizzie! It's fascinating to hear the spontaneous way Juli Lynne's career took shape... And I love the photos--especially the one with Harpo Marx!

Thank you so much for this & all the other wonderful information you give us on your blog! I'm very interested in the provenance of American iconic clothing & your blog is a great resource. :)

what a fantastic life story - so wonderful to have this detail from the creator herself (and I hope she gets that memoir done!)

Thank you for posting such an interesting article. I'd known about the poodle skirts of course but being in the UK, hadn't heard about Juli and now I'm a big fan.

Please let us know when her memoirs are published. I would love a copy! Juli is quite a gal. For someone so young to set up her own business back then was quite something. I have every admiration for her. Wow! She looks incredible too!

haha! What did the Spice Girls think they invented? Was it 'girl power' or something? Honestly! ;)

Thanks again Lizzie. I've really enjoyed learning a little about Juli and her wonderful designs.

I just got lucky. A woman who had been visiting a friend in Mexico who was a friend of Charlot's returned home and googled Juli Lynne Charlot. She found the article I wrote on circle skirts which mentions Charlot, so she kindly emailed me to let me know Juli Lynne was in Mexico and doing great. Her friend in Mexico then put me in touch with Juli Lynne.

Yes, she is a real beauty!

Wow, love this info (where did you connect with her?)
Actually, growing up in SoCal in the 50's, we had those felt circle skirts with holiday ornaments on them, now I'm wondering where my grandma got them. (and wishing they were still in a box somewhere at my mom's!)
