  • Hollywood Vest by Wanett

    November 11, 2013 by Wanett

    Another beautiful project by Wanett of Sown Brooklyn brings us closer to the inevitable truth that winter is approaching. In her second Guest Blogger post, Wanett tells us how she modified a jacket pattern to make a quick wooly and wintery vest. For inspiration, take a look at our online wool fabrics currently on sale; Coating sale ends November 14 and Mid/Light Weight Wool sale runs from November 15-30. --- For this, my second Britex project, I got to work with one of my FAVORITE fabrics (again!!): WOOL!!!

  • Woodland Stroll Cape by Wanett

    September 23, 2013 by Wanett

    Hello Britex blog readers!!! I'm Wanett (or Nettie, if you prefer) and I blog at Sown Brooklyn from...Brooklyn!! After I stopped squealing and jumping around when the good peeps at Britex asked me to join their team, I zoned in on the project I wanted to start with. Almost immediately the word CAPE!! (yes, all caps with !!!!) came to mind.  I love this Shetland pony wool plaid with a touch of mock Harris tweed, all in shades of blue accented with chocolate brown from Britex Fabrics - perfect for Brooklyn fall strolls!
