Britex Fabrics loves everything about silk and it shows. Silk is a natural fiber that is usually derived from the mulberry silkworm’s cocoons. Silk has it all; it is smooth, soft, strong, and lustrous. Silk is ethereal for a summer frock, and just as smart for a winter frock-coat lining. We delight in traipsing about to find you the most chic Italian silks, natty necktie silks, brilliant jacquard silks, and airy sheer silk chiffons.
This sale is good for online silk fabric category purchases* only 11/1 - 11/14. *This online sale does not apply to in-store, email, phone, or Customized Swatch purchases.

Need a last minute Halloween costume idea? The tutorial for this gorgeous phoenix costume that can be found on Instructables, by Natalina, is a little more of a challenge than some of the other projects we have presented, but it can be created in 15 steps, and the pattern from BurdaStyle is pretty intuitive, with access to a dress form. This is the second Instructable post by Natalina. Natalina is a designer with a degree in fashion design. Most of the items you will need for this project, including feathers and trims can be found on the second and third floor of our brick-and-mortar store. For the how to, visit Instructables here.
For the the headpiece tutorial, please visit the other part of this Instructable here.
