  • Peplum Silk Top

    February 12, 2013 by Nicole at Home

    Hello fellow fans of Britex Fabrics! My name is Nicole from Nicole at Home, and I’m so excited to be sharing one of my projects with this community today.  As a resident of the Bay Area, I am absolutely thrilled and honored to be collaborating with Britex as a Guest Blogger. 

    Since I'm a part-time instructor at a local community college, I try to step up my wardrobe a little bit; I’m young-looking and a small person, so I have to make an effort to not look like a student!  I had wanted to recreate a ready-to-wear top that fit well, and this partnership with Britex provided a great opportunity to work with one of their incredible solid-colored silks.

    Tasia from the fabulous Canadian sewing blog, Sewaholic: Sewing Projects, Tips and Inspiration for the Modern Seamstress made this step by step tutorial on how to understitch garments for neat facings and linings. Often this kind of attention to detail is what separates the cats from the kittens (so to speak!)


  • Cover a Hip Flask in Leather

    February 8, 2013 by Britex Fabrics

    Jenni from the blog I Spy DIY made this easy-peasy tutorial for covering a hip flash in leather. We love the bold stripes…make one in your favorite colors. We’ll be sipping our mocktail from a flask covered in silver lizard, maroon, cobalt blue, and black stripes with all the leather bought on the 4th floor at Britex Fabrics.

  • Sweet Panty Tutorial

    January 30, 2013 by Britex Fabrics

    As soon as we spied this pair of bloomer-esque panties, we knew that we needed to make a clutch of them for our favorite panty aficionados…and Cate from Australia and the craft blog Go Make Things obliged with a tutorial and pattern for these delectable bits of frippery! We love the sweet gathers and perky bows. This would be a lovely Valentine ’s Day project; sew them using silk from our online silk fabric sale, and lingerie elastic from our online lingerie selection! (sheer silk fabric category on sale through 1/31 and print silk fabric category on sale 2/1/13 – 2/14/13)
