Bay area residents Wanda and Jim were in Britex today wearing clothing made by Wanda. Jim had on a charming cotton shirt – he picked out the fabric, and chipperly informed me that it depicted his hometown of Franklin, Michigan. Wanda says she makes Jim shirts when he is “good”, and that he is good most of the time! Wanda made her burnt orange jacket from Britex home decorating fabric; we love her attention to fabric pattern detail with the matching shoulder and arm seams, cuffs, and tree centerpiece. She also made her earrings from passementerie buttons from Britex. Wanda started sewing when she was five by hand hemming handkerchiefs, and has been visiting Britex since 1962!
