  • Easy Double Welt Pockets by NEW Guest Blogger Becky (sewbeckyjo.com)

    July 24, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    double-welt-01 Double welt pockets look so scary. There’s little dots, little triangles, blind sewing, to bias or not to bias, more blind sewing with the lining….and the worst part? You’re cutting a hole smack in the middle of fabric. There’s no going back after you cut that hole.Worse? Half the time they’re this unusable, shallow size. I don’t like fiddley or inefficiency. I think it’s time we knocked double welts off their pedestal. I’ve made a very photo-detailed tutorial with the help of Britex Fabrics, and you’ll be whipping these out in no time. I chose this Midweight Royal Purple Linen for this project.

  • Linen Jumpsuit Tutorial (apairandasparediy.com)

    June 14, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    linen-sold-159-pur60 If you've ever looked longingly at our online linen section--or at the tantalizing linens in our brick-and-mortar store--and wished you had just the right thing to make with it, Geneva Vanderzeil of apairandasparediy.com has the perfect project for you! This new intermediate skill level linen jumpsuit builds on Geneva's easy shorts project, beginning with creating your own pattern (don't be anxious about patternmaking; this project has step-by-step instructions on drafting from your existing clothing). Choose a linen and run with it! And remember: if our online store doesn't have the color or texture you're looking for, just purchase the Customized Swatch Service (available in the "About Britex" section) so we can hand pick fabrics for you from our entire brick-and-mortar inventory. If you're local or planning a visit to San Francisco soon, come visit us in the heart of Union Square to check out our vast selection of linen on the second floor.

  • 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.
