Coats Made from Japanese-style Fabrics from Britex – by Jennifer

Jennifer sent us photos of her handiwork. She says, “All of these Japanese-style fabrics are from Britex. Two of the coats are “personal designs”, and three are from combined patterns to make each more unique. Each coat is lined with silk, and has an inside pocket with a Betty Boop button, just for fun. Working with beautifully weighted cottons, rayon, or tapestry fabrics is the best reason to sew!” Photos were taken by Paul Kirshner Studios.

The Wizard of Oz pinafore

Thanks to Tina from New York for sending us this fabulous photo of her granddaughter Alora wearing a “Dorothy” pinafore in her school’s production of The Wizard of Oz. Tina made this with Britex’s 100% Italian cotton gingham. She adjusted the neckline and bodice of Simplicity #4136, and then backed the fabric with lightweight cotton to provide the additional body required in stage garments. Tina did a great sewing job!
