Floaty Silk Tunic by Rhonda

001

The fabulous Rhonda is not only a pilot, she is also the talent behind the sewing blog, Rhonda’s Creative Life. We love this floaty loose silk top from fabric that she made from fabric bought from Britex Fabrics during a San Francisco visit. Check out her blog for hints on sewing this chic tunic, and of course we have lots of lovely silks online!

A Baker’s Dozen of New Silk Fabrics!

Britex Fabrics just added a baker’s dozen of new silk print fabrics to our online store, including this dynamic twosome. We love this growl-tastic imported leopard silk charmeuse, paired with a cloud-like soft wool and mohair bouclé coating – made them into a glamorous clingy shirred silk sheath dress under a vintage-styled wool swing coat. And this imported matte crimson floral silk print is stunning paired with a French metallic wool blend – maybe sewn into a shimmering violet bolero over a soft red floral 1930s jumpsuit. Either combination are the cat’s meow!

Elegant Bias Cut Wedding Gown

It is time for love, and we adore this elegantly classic wedding gown – from the softly draped neckline, to the sensuous low back, to the flowing romantic train. Cut on the bias, it would be perfect in either fluid silk crepe back satin or silk charmeuse. Pattern is Vogue 2965.
