Jackets from Italian Tweed - Amanda

August 31, 2011 by Britex Fabrics 2 comment(s)

Amanda visited Britex Fabrics all the way from Ely, United Kingdom, and bought two jacket lengths of Italian wool tweed to make jackets for her children. One of them was this Italian olive and turquoise tweed wool blend. and the other was another coloration of this luscious tweed fabric. She used Vogue patterns, and we think they turned out superbly! We especially love the red buttonholes, which act as a charming foil to the blues.
