  • Japanese Retro Fabric

    July 8, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    This Japanese fabric featuring authentic vintage advertisements is charmingly retro. It would make a nifty apron, sewing room café curtains, ironing board cover, or tote bag. My favorite saying is “Here’s Mildness You Can Measure All Day Long!” This fabric is printed on a natural 45% cotton/55% linen blend. It is 45” wide and $29.99 a yard, and can be found on Britex Fabric's 2nd floor.

    Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy this fabric.

    If you wish another fabric, contact us through our fabric mail order department for detailed mail order assistance.

  • Toddler's Fork Pants by Secretary

    January 27, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    Secretary from Britex’s 4th floor made these easy-peasy two piece pants for her nephew, “Little Hog”. He likes to wear these while gumming and sucking down Brazilian barbeque. Yum!

    (We think children’s pants would also be super cute in this retro-looking dotted mushroom or this swingin’ birdcage fabric)
