  • Hello Kitty Frock - Emily

    September 11, 2013 by Britex Fabrics

    il_570xN.499491218_46prThe creative and marvelous Emily works at Britex, and made this delightful, delicious, and de-loverly frock from Liberty of London cotton lawn. Liberty collaborated with Hello Kitty to make the Apple Tree Hello Kitty design. Apple Tree was a design produced in 1934 featuring one of Kitty's favorite foods! Emily sells this at her Etsy shop, DevonRose. She says that this is “A beautiful "back to school" dress. Available in sizes 12m all the way up to 6Y” It is obvious from this photo that Devon is clearly ready for reading, writing, and arithmetic! This Liberty of London Apple Tree Hello Kitty fabric is available on Britex Fabrics’ 2nd floor, or by phone at 415-392-2910.


  • Liberty of London + The Urbane Grandmother + Britex Fabrics!

    June 19, 2013 by Britex Fabrics

    Karletta, San Francisco’s urbane grandmother and blogger supreme from The Urbane Grandmother, combined Liberty of London cotton lawn, little girls, and a McCalls sundress pattern.  Liberty of London cotton lawn is ideal for so many garments, including heirloom quality children’s clothing, men’s dress shirts, pajamas, vintage-style frocks, and more. Liberty is great for travel, as it can be easily washed out in the sink, and dries quickly and nearly wrinkle-free! Britex carries a generous selection of Liberty of London cottons in our SF store; if you can’t make it into the store, utilize our handy Customized Swatch Service so that you can fondle and drool over these luscious fabrics for yourself!

  • New Liberty of London is at Britex Fabrics!

    March 10, 2011 by Britex Fabrics

    Britex Fabric’s second floor is blooming with a new shipment of soft Liberty of London cotton lawn! Today my favorite is this one with grey and brown birch trees adorned with fantastical fleurs and paisley. As Nanki-Poo would say……
    “The flowers that bloom in the spring, Tra la,
    Breathe promise of merry sunshine —
    As we merrily dance and we sing, Tra la,
    We welcome the hope that they bring, Tra la,
    Of a summer of roses and wine, Of a summer of roses and wine.
    And that's what we mean when we say that a thing
    Is welcome as flowers that bloom in the spring. Tra la la la la, Tra la la la la,
    The flowers that bloom in the spring.”

    (From The Mikado and by the immortal Gilbert and Sullivan)

  • Liberty of London - Art Nouveau Print

    April 14, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    This Liberty of London Art Nouveau print has graceful flowing lines and clear muted colors. It is just the thing to segue from rainy winter mornings to the dewy newness of spring, and would make a luxuriously fabulous shawl-collared robe.

  • Liberty of London fabric is here!

    March 30, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    The new Liberty of London is finally here! We have 32 bolts on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor. I’ve been told they will be ready by this weekend. There are several patterns that I am swooning to make into spring pajamas with contrasting collar and cuff piping.
