  • Urbane Country Fair Japanese Cotton

    December 18, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    I’m in love with this sophisticated country fair Japanese cotton. It is lightweight enough to be perfect sewn up into a pair of urbane tailored pajamas, perhaps with chartreuse piping around the cuffs, collar, and pocket. I’m also much enamored of the color scheme and the taupe background. This soft fabric is found on... Britex Fabric's 2nd floor, is 100% cotton, 45” wide and $24.99/yard.

  • London Bridge Japanese Cotton

    December 17, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    We just got several bolts of new Japanese fabric, including this briskly fabulous piece with London images including the Tower of London, red double-decker buses, and marching Queen's Guards. I deeply desire a bow tie from this, which I’d debonairly wear with a red wool double-breasted vest and 501s. This fabric is 85% linen/15% cotton, 45” wide and $29.99/yard.

    “London Bridge
    Is Broken down,
    Dance over my Lady Lee.
    London Bridge
    Is Broken down
    With a gay Lady.”

  • The King has No Clothes Japanese Cotton

    August 26, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    Yikes! It certainly appears that the Emperor has no clothes. We love the swindler tailors in their fezzes, and the king in his majestic crown and striped shorts. This sturdy fabric would be perfect for a child’s a-line jumper…..worn with a red turtleneck, red ribbed tights, and black ankle boots. It is Japanese cotton/linen fabric, 45” wide, $29.99 a yard, and found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.

    Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy this fabric.
