  • Emma Peel - Catsuit by Britex Fabrics

    July 18, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    Britex Fabrics was pleased as punch to have a mitt in clothing the fabulously witty and athletic Mrs. Emma Peel for the recent Comic-Con in San Diego. As Mrs. Peel can attest, catsuits are both comfortable and fashion forward; she ended up using cotton/lycra and rayon/lycra fabric from Britex Fabrics’ 2nd floor for her dashing ensemble.
