  • Anastasia - League of Legends Costume (We Love Our Customers)

    November 14, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    "My name is Anastasia Uhland.  I am in the 9th grade at Monte Vista High School in Danville CA.  I learned how to sew in my 7th grade clothing class.  Last month I had a great time visiting  Britex Fabrics.  It was fun to climb the stairs and explore all the levels in the store.  I enjoyed talking with the lady who helped us select our fabrics.  We found some in the bargain area that were prefect!  The fabrics were pink and purple, polyester.   I had created the pattern to fit myself and wore the costume to school on Halloween.  The character is from the video game, League of Legends.  I can't wait to visit the store again soon!"

  • Rolled Seam Tutorial With New Guest Blogger Nanna From Denmark (HowToDoFashion)

    November 8, 2016 by howtodofashion

    6

    A while back Britex asked me if I would be a Guest Blogger. One of the difficult tasks of this assignment was to choose the fabric. I decided to work with a fabric that I think many people may be afraid to work with, chiffon. I love this blue chiffon fashion novelty fabric, it is light, and with the right sewing techniques, this fabric can turn into the most magical garment. The two techniques I always use when sewing with chiffon is a French seam and a rolled seam for hemming. In this post, I will show you how to make a rolled seam on your sewing machine.

    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.
