Partaking Patrons! (vol. i)

March 18, 2015 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Welcome to Partaking Patrons volume 1!

This is a bi-monthly post where Britex will be celebrating our customers and the gorgeous items they create with our materials. Interested in participating? Email us at [marketing@britexfabrics.com] for further information!

 

Today we are featuring Trudy of Poppy von Frohlich and her gorgeous tote bag! The cotton she used is from our gorgeous Guatemalan collection, available in store on our 2nd floor.

Trudy makes gorgeous pieces that are perfect for everyday wear. "I design for a Northern California lifestyle; foggy coastal trail jaunts, redwood journeys, farmer’s market shopping, whale watching outings, picnics and child chasing adventures."

She has a keen eye for detail and clean work. "Every design is draped and patterned by me.  All the samples are sewn in my in-home studio and I do multiple fittings to make sure the designs are perfect." Taking a look at her store, we can't help but agree!

 

Also visiting our page today is the lovely Chuleenan of C Cews in her breathtaking maxi skirt. She had never made a maxi until this fabric came along. And, aren't we just so glad?

She did an excellent job of creating a pattern where the fabric is really allowed to speak for itself. Read more about her adventures sewing this gorgeous piece on her blog!

 

Thank you both to Trudy and Chuleenan for sharing today. We truly love getting to see how our items get incorporated into projects with customer's unique perspectives. It is not only exciting, but very inspiring! Let us know what you think and see you next time.
