  • Tutorial: Reinforcing a Kimono Sleeve Like an Expert

    February 17, 2015 by Lilacs & Lace

    Hello everyone! Today I have a few tricks to help you reinforce the curved edge of a kimono sleeve using this wool and mohair boucle. 01 I love a kimono sleeve. The design feature is classic, easy to wear, and very easy to construct. As a fan of vintage silhouettes, I have made quite a few dresses and blouses with this design feature over the years. But I have never liked the fact that it requires clipping into a seam that sees a lot of movement and potential wear.

  • A Baker's Dozen of New Silk Fabrics!

    September 21, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    Britex Fabrics just added a baker’s dozen of new silk print fabrics to our online store, including this dynamic twosome. We love this growl-tastic imported leopard silk charmeuse, paired with a cloud-like soft wool and mohair bouclé coating – made them into a glamorous clingy shirred silk sheath dress under a vintage-styled wool swing coat. And this imported matte crimson floral silk print is stunning paired with a French metallic wool blend – maybe sewn into a shimmering violet bolero over a soft red floral 1930s jumpsuit. Either combination are the cat’s meow!


  • Mohair Fabric at Britex

    August 17, 2010 by Britex Fabrics


    Autumn is approaching! This bright navy mohair fabric, patterned in a Glenn plaid in brilliant turquoise and accented with a delicate chartreuse would make a luxuriously snugly throw or a fine silk-lined jacket. This mohair is imported from England….where they need to keep warm with all that gloomy rain. It is 62” wide, $95.00 a yard, and found on Britex Fabric’s 1st floor.
