  • Euler Bralette Tutorial from Sophie Hines of alltheunderwear.sophiehines.com

    September 29, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    lace-bra-1-small Ooooh how I love sewing my own lingerie!! There are so many little ways to make a bra or pair of undies totally unique, and just exactly what you love to wear and feel comfy in! One of my favorite fabrics to work with is stretch lace. It can be so soft and lovely, and it has such a beautiful romantic effect when used in lingerie! Stretch lace can be difficult to find, at times, but Britex really has some incredible pieces to choose from!! As soon as I saw this deep blue corded lace, I immediately thought of this black and blue Euler Bralette!!

  • Britex Fabrics Water Resistant Jacket by Guest Blogger Jamie Kemp (maledevonsewing.co.uk)

    August 30, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    jacket-1   It has been quite a while since my last Britex Fabrics guest post so obviously jumped at this opportunity. Generally my sewing is quite safe and I stick to things I know and feel confident about: indeed, this make (mens jacket/blazer) is quite a safe bet for me, as it is something I make regularly. However, the choice of fabric is a bit of a departure from what I might normally pick and it would also prove to be a challenge!

  • Sewing and Stabilizing Knit Garments by Becky Johnson (sewbeckyjo.com)

    August 14, 2017 by Becky Johnson

    aomori00-resized It’s almost my favorite time of year: autumn layering time! I looked through the beautiful woven wool fabrics at Britex, but when I saw this raw umber viscose & wool knit, it was love at first sight. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you, if you want it, buy it now. Mark my words, it will sell out.

Pick out some prints on the second floor of our brick-and-mortar store, and don't forget your notions--this is the perfect time to use that giant rickrack or dingleball trim that you have secretly been coveting!


  • Easy Double Welt Pockets by NEW Guest Blogger Becky (sewbeckyjo.com)

    July 24, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    double-welt-01 Double welt pockets look so scary. There’s little dots, little triangles, blind sewing, to bias or not to bias, more blind sewing with the lining….and the worst part? You’re cutting a hole smack in the middle of fabric. There’s no going back after you cut that hole.Worse? Half the time they’re this unusable, shallow size. I don’t like fiddley or inefficiency. I think it’s time we knocked double welts off their pedestal. I’ve made a very photo-detailed tutorial with the help of Britex Fabrics, and you’ll be whipping these out in no time. I chose this Midweight Royal Purple Linen for this project.  

  • Silk Baby Hems by Guest Blogger Sophie Hines

    July 20, 2017 by Sophie Hines

    photo-1 So crop tops and cute bralettes are all the rage lately - but how do you actually incorporate them into your wardrobe? It may be a bit daring for some, but I love pairing my long line Euler Bralette with a sheer silk shirt! Sewing with silk can be tricky if you haven’t tried it, but there are so many tips on the internet, you can quickly get your bearings!!

  • DIY Ruffle Hem Wrap Skirt (apairandasparediy.com)

    July 19, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    img_1174 This gingham wrap skirt by Geneva of apairandasparediy.com is voluminous and provides just the type of fashion confidence boost a person needs during the summer months. The pattern is included on her blog post, and this project is not recommended for beginners. The gingham fabric that is available in over half a dozen colors on the second floor of our brick-and-mortar store, is not your average run of the mill cotton, but a beautifully smooth, tightly woven fabric!

  • Bolster Your Style With Yummy Velvet

    June 28, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    img_1010 Bolster pillows are like adorable rolls of candy adorning sofas and beds, and when they're made out of velvet they're even more delicious. Check out this super easy velvet bolster pillow tutorial by Anita from cedarhillfarmhouse.com, and visit the second floor of our brick-and-mortar store to see a selection of velvets in cotton, silk/rayon, viscose, rayon/acetate, poly lycra and more (the term 'velvet' refers to the structure of the fabric rather than the fiber; the pile is always created by raised loops). Velvet fabric has been around since the Middle Kingdom of the ancient Egyptians (approximately 2000 BC), and velvet trims have been found as far back as the Qin and Western Han dynasties in China--so clearly, there's no need to improve on something that was perfect four millennia ago! For velvet ribbon, please visit us online here or visit the ribbon wall on the second floor of our brick-and-mortar store where we have hand dyed, grosgrain, satin, metallic, silk, velvet, sheer, vintage, and many other types of ribbon.
