  • Winter Coat Sew-Along!

    September 18, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    The superbly multi-faceted Gertie from Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing: A Modern Homage to Vogue’s New Book for Better Sewing [Published 1952] is hosting another coat sew-along! Join her and her online sewing community as they learn the intricacies of constructing a winter coat. The pattern for the sew-along is vintage-inspired (and designed by Gertie herself!) Butterick 5824 – a glamorous shawl-collared, double-breasted number. Britex carries everything you’ll need for this project, including luscious coatings, sublime linings, snazzy buttons, and Butterick patterns. We’d love to make it in this spicy Dijon wool coating – perfect for a visit to the upcoming Rudolf Nureyev: A Life in Dance exhibit at the De Young Museum.
