  • Metallic Pleated Skirt

    July 22, 2015 by Ada Spragg

    9   Greetings friends of Britex! Sophie here from Ada Spragg. I'm very excited to share this hand-make with you because it is fabulous. And yes I'm allowed to say so myself because I still can't believe it worked out. Plus after hand-pleating 4.2meters of fabric you kind of become your own hero! Let's start with the fabric, because it is something very special. When I first saw the Brilliant Metallic Gold Stretch Linen & Cotton Blend I thought hey, that could be fun to play with. Then it turned up and I realized I had no idea what I was going to do with it.  

  • Knickerbockers for all Seasons

    May 23, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    We love the devil-may-care attitude of plus-fours, plus-twos, and knickerbockers. Made with a spiffy buckle holding the bottom cuffs in place and of linen or wool, these sportif trousers are the height of chic for all genders! They are practical for bicycling, traditional for all manner of lawn sports, and the height of steampunk or dandy fashion for urban adventures. Here is a knickerbocker pattern from BurdaStyle....I’d like a pair in navy blue linen for summer, and another in bittersweet chocolate brown wool for fall.


  • Simple Striped Dress - Jamie

    May 15, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    Jamie from BurdaStyle likes to drop into Britex Fabrics when she is in foggy San Francisco visiting her family, and we always love to see her cheerful face! Recently she picked up this striped linen. She liked that it was minimal, but reminiscent of the sea and summer and thought that it would work well with the Anda dress pattern silhouette. In her Anda dress version, she did away with the casing at the waistline and decided to go with a belted look instead. This simple, easy to make dress would be great sewn with one of our silk solid fabrics, which are on sale at 20% off through May 25th!


  • Sailor Pants for Summer Fun!

    May 9, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    Strut your stuff in a pair of 8-button sailor pants made with fabric and buttons from Britex Fabrics, and a pattern from BurdaStyle! We love the way the buttons curve up to the high waist. This snappy nautical number will be a humongous summer hit - so grab a pal, hit the boardwalk, and saunter in the twilight while slurping juicy slushies. Oh, and feel free to add five additional buttons for true blue 13-button authenticity!


  • Striped Dress by Jamie & Pattern by Angela

    April 27, 2011 by Britex Fabrics


    Jamie wrote that she finally got to cut into this striped wool that she bought from Britex Fabrics! She made a dress out of it, which is featured as BurdaStyle's project of the week (where she is currently doing her internship). She says, “I have always been inspired by the simplicity and playfulness of children’s clothing, particularly from the 1950s and 1960s. Working with a classic pinafore pattern, I added a Peter Pan collar to sweeten up the dress a bit….. “ This charming creation is based upon Angela’s free dress pattern that she posted on BurdaStyle! We love the inclusion of both front and back pockets.
