  • THE Outlander Dress--from Britex Fabrics!

    April 8, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    Season 2 of Outlander premiers on Saturday evening, and one of the most iconic new costumes--featured prominently in the Starz official trailer and all over the Internet--is this stunning dress made of fabric from Britex! We were thrilled to work with Outlander costume designer Terry Dresbach, who spent several days here choosing fabrics, trims and buttons for both seasons. Most of the fabrics that she selected were plaids and woolens for Season 1 (set in chilly Scotland), but this particular fabric is such a unique, spectacular combination of color and pattern that we are not surprised to see it emerge in Season 2, set in 18th century Paris. brown dress outlander This dress is made of a heavy, luxurious furnishing fabric produced in Turkey by one of our favorite sources. Unusually, the floral pattern does not run up the roll, but was designed in panels. Each panel was 27" square: which meant that there were two panels in each 3/4 yard. We are generally wary of carrying panels like this in the store, because the square design tends to limit application to pillows, ottomans and the like--but we absolutely fell in love with the colors and were confident that our customers would feel the same!
    Terry is an incredibly savvy designer, so she turned the panels to her advantage, placing the flowers strategically around the skirt and bodice...and we can't imagine a more beautiful usage for for one of our favorite fabrics. We're also proud to mention that Outlander creator Ronald Moore (who happens to be Terry's husband) says in the Starz trailer that this is his favorite dress!
    We no longer have this particular piece in the store (because it took a LOT to make this dress), but we carry other fabrics of similar quality and design from the same source--so come in and take a look!
    Expect to hear more from us about Outlander as the season progresses!

  • We Love Our Customers

    March 28, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    Kathy Dell is no stranger to Britex Fabrics. She attended our Warp X Weft: Textile 101 workshop on Saturday, and was wearing her "fiesta shirt", which is one of her many garments that she created with fabric from Britex Fabrics, and is perfect for spring. Kathy used a Misses Asymmetrical Seam-Detail Top Pattern which can be found here.   Kathy's mother taught her to sew when she was about 10 years old.  She made many of her clothes in high school, but then her sewing took a back seat to college and a long career in the medical device industry.  Her husband bought her a new computerized machine last fall and she has been enjoying creating fun things since then.  Britex is her “go to” fabric store, because of the quality of textiles and service she receives when visiting with us. blog 3 28
