  • Linen Tunic by Susan (We Love Our Customers)

    May 30, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    linen-susan

    I used a Burda pattern but changed the front neckline-shallow vee instead of
    long opening with buttons and loops.
    I washed the linen twice in hot water and then dried it in a hot dryer
    per Sandra Betzina's instructions so it is softer and will wrinkle
    less. I like the slightly wrinkled look which ads texture to the
    pattern. - Susan

    The fabric featured above is available online in our linen section here.

  • Two-tone Linen Infinity Scarf Tutorial by Guest Blogger Nicole (NicoleAtHome)

    January 3, 2017 by Nicole at Home

    img_5541 Who says you can't wear linen in the winter?  Using some amazing linen knit fabric from Britex Fabrics, I sewed up a beautiful and warm color-blocked infinity scarf, perfect for the colder months.  For my version, I chose two different colors--turquoise and navy--but this tutorial would work equally well if you wanted to go with a single color of fabric.   Here's what to do.

  • Vintage-inspired Linen Sundress and Petite Adjustment Tutorial

    April 27, 2016 by NicoleAtHome

    IMG_4435   Aloha!  I was so excited to have the opportunity to make a garment out of one of Britex's beautiful linen fabrics, and I knew immediately what I wanted to sew: a fabulous sundress for the summer (and my family's trip to Hawaii!).  The timing of this project meant that instead of photos from my sewing studio or my neighborhood in Northern California, I could model the dress in Haleiwa, Oahu!   IMG_4455   The linen I chose for this project is a Midweight Cross-Dyed Turquoise Linen is fairly lightweight, though slightly more opaque than you'd expect.  Linens are always a bit shifty while cutting and sewing, so I had to take care not to distort the fabric, but overall, I found it very easy to sew and was the perfect choice for this dress.   IMG_4476   For the pattern, I selected the vintage-inspired Siren Sundress by Decades of Style.  The dress has a faux-wrap front bodice, with secured wrap skirt in the back.  However, the highlight of the design is the cross-wrapping straps that wrap around the waist to tie in the back.  Lots of wrapping going on in this dress!  While it takes a while to get it on (with the aid of a mirror or significant other to keep the straps flat), once "assembled", it is comfortable and secure.

  • Tutorial: How to Sew a One-Piece Flat Collar

    January 21, 2015 by Jamie Lau Designs

    JLDBritexFabricsLinen01192015_Main For this garment, my goal was to create a color block resort-inspired look. Linen seemed like the perfect choice for a relaxed fit, lowered-waist shirt dress. I chose a midweight blue linen for the primary body of the dress and combined it with a semi-sheer natural linen for the color block elements. I thought that the embroidered polka dots would work great for accent features on the collar, button placket, and skirt and sleeve hems. I most recently wore this dress to my art exhibition in Kyoto, which featured my hand dyed, handwoven, and handsewn kasuri (ikat) fashion designs.
