  • 2014 Blog Re-Cap: Jamie Lau Designs

    December 30, 2014 by Britex Fabrics

    re-cap2014 The 2014 Guest Blogger Re-cap is here—because you’ve probably missed a few pretty amazing projects along the way this year and because we’re so proud of each blogger’s ability to transform Britex fabrics into beautiful garments and accessories. During the next few weeks you’ll be treated to exclusive re-caps of our favorite guest blogger projects. We’ll show you the best of the best from each of our guest bloggers with all their individual style. Jamie of Jamie Lau Designs contributed a total of 5 projects this year---busy bee, she is. If you haven't noticed, she loves fabrics with structure like linen and cotton, and has a special interest in colorblocking patterns, which pretty much guarantees beautiful and uncommon garments. Britex042114_640x427_Main Here's a perfect example. Jamie's Palazzo Pant Jumpsuit is a favorite of ours. The linen choices are perfect with just the right amount of drape. For those that love linen but aren't big fans of the wrinkle factor, Jamie recommends using fusible knitted tricot interfacing for collars and other areas you'd like to keep crisp.

  • Sleek Red Viscose Jumpsuit - Adam

    August 11, 2014 by Britex Fabrics

    jumpsuit copyAdam, a local tailor, made his client a suave and chic tailored jumpsuit of brilliant red viscose from Britex Fabrics. Britex Fabrics’ associate, Douglas, assisted Adam. We love the modest plunging neckline and sparklingly bright color. Adam says, "I am an independent designer working in Portland for the last twelve years.  I have a collection of men’s and women’s pieces, as well as custom design that I create to order for a clientele.  I design, pattern draft, fit, cut, and construct every garment myself in my studio.  I am inspired by fabric, color, texture, and finding the perfect fit.  Because my main focus is on fit and construction, my designs have often been called “classic”, although I personally strive to strike a timeless balance between fabric, line, and function."  This lovely 100% viscose is available is imported from Italy and on Britex Fabrics’ 2nd floor, via email at, or by phone at 415-392-2910.


  • Linen Palazzo Pant Jumpsuit by Jamie Lau Designs

    April 22, 2014 by Jamie Lau Designs



    I’ve been busy designing jumpsuits this month, including a style with a drawstring waist in embroidered Japanese cotton. For my latest edition of Fashion Travelogue, I selected two beautiful fabrics from the Britex linen category for a bolder jumpsuit look - a colorblock palazzo pant style with short kimono sleeves. For the yoke and necktie, I chose a lightweight linen that is a cross between hunter green and teal green. And for the volume-heavy part of the garment, I selected a midweight linen that is a lovely mix of warm copper and terracotta tones. The width on both of these fabrics is quite generous (58”-59” wide), perfect for wide leg pants.
