  • Warm Up with a New Sewing Project!

    January 23, 2019 by Britex Fabrics


    Outside, there's winter in all it's snowy glory. Don't let the snow, ice, and frost get you down; combat the icy chill with a new sewing project! Avery at Britex fabrics has been on a florid blossoms binge and has been sewing a new shirt...we love the contrasting placket. Prepare yourself for spring and lift winter's gloom with some all cotton shirting from Britex Fabrics. Stay in and sew your winter blues away!

  • Joel - Matrix Revolutions-Inspired Overcoat

    January 15, 2019 by Britex Fabrics



    Britex Fabrics longtime customer Joel says, "Ten years ago, I began learning how to sew and make my own patterns. Recently, I remade my very first project using better techniques and materials.

    The fine wool and blue lining came from you guys some time back. It has magnetic closures on the front and in the cuffs and is inspired by the coat Neo wore in the Matrix Revolutions."

    We adore Joel's fine handiwork and tailoring.  Look at that pocket; His attention to detail is amazing!



  • Sewing Men's Briefs by SewAndrew!

    December 13, 2018 by Britex Fabrics


    Hi, my name’s Andrew, you can find more from me on Instagram @SewAndrew or my blog however, today I’m here to tell you a bit about men’s underwear and this lovely jersey from Britex. I got a yard each of black/white cotton jersey, navy/white striped cotton jersey, and another yard of white cotton jersey with a cute cherry print on it. Also a yard each of star motif elastic in red, blue and black (this fabulous waistband elastic available in our notions department - A). The elastic is soft and strong, perfect for underwear and the jersey felt so nice that I changed my plan a little (but more on that later!).

    I’ve been trying out some different patterns and thought I’d share with you a few things I’ve learnt along the way. There aren’t that many modern men’s briefs patterns available, but this is by no means an exhaustive list - these are just the three that I could get my hands on easily! First up, Ottobre Magazine Family Edition - Men’s Briefs.
