August 30, 2017 by Britex FabricsIt 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!
