    Let our NEW scintillating silks seduce you!

    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.

    20% off all online silk category fabrics now - 1/9!


  • Two-tone Linen Infinity Scarf Tutorial by Guest Blogger Nicole (NicoleAtHome)

    January 3, 2017 by Nicole at Home

    img_5541 Who says you can't wear linen in the winter?  Using some amazing linen knit fabric from Britex Fabrics, I sewed up a beautiful and warm color-blocked infinity scarf, perfect for the colder months.  For my version, I chose two different colors--turquoise and navy--but this tutorial would work equally well if you wanted to go with a single color of fabric.   Here's what to do.

  • Little Red Pinup Holiday Dress Project by Guest Blogger Bianca (VintageOnTap)

    December 21, 2016 by VintageOnTap

    December is always an excuse to drown myself in the holiday spirit, surrounding myself in red and white and gold. The opportunity to stitch up a dress for the season couldn’t be missed, so I decided to sew Butterick B5603, a pattern I’ve had in my stash for a while. Pairing up with both Britex Fabrics and fellow seamstress Allie J, I got to work.  
    Techniques I specifically cover in my video were the creation of silk organza strips that are used to stabilize bias cut edges including the neck, arm scythes, and the top of the skirt to prevent warping or stretching. I also discuss underlining the entire garment in silk charmeuse and break down the process, step by step.
