The Britex Blog

  • 2014 Blog Re-cap: Ada Spragg

    November 19, 2014 by Britex Fabrics


    The 2014 Guest Blogger Re-cap is here—because you’ve probably missed a few pretty amazing projects along the way this year and because we are so proud of each blogger’s ability to transform Britex fabrics into beautiful garments and accessories. During the next few weeks you’ll be treated to exclusive re-caps of our favorite guest blogger projects. We’ll show you the best of the best from each of our guest bloggers with all of their individual style. Today, we re-visit the very fashion-forward contributions of Sophie at Ada Spragg. Sophie is one of our newest guest bloggers, contributing all the way from Australia! Expect to see experiments with the newest trends in textiles and fashion at Ada Spragg. Expect color (because Sophie is not afraid of color), bold prints and unexpected combinations! While exploring her blog, don't miss the opportunity to meet loads of other superb bloggers through the feature Makers in the Wild.


  • Floaty Silk Tunic by Rhonda

    April 4, 2014 by Britex Fabrics


    The fabulous Rhonda is not only a pilot, she is also the talent behind the sewing blog, Rhonda's Creative Life. We love this floaty loose silk top from fabric that she made from fabric bought from Britex Fabrics during a San Francisco visit. Check out her blog for hints on sewing this chic tunic, and of course we have lots of lovely silks online!

  • 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!

  • Elegant Bias Cut Wedding Gown

    April 25, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    It is time for love, and we adore this elegantly classic wedding gown – from the softly draped neckline, to the sensuous low back, to the flowing romantic train. Cut on the bias, it would be perfect in either fluid silk crepe back satin or silk charmeuse. Pattern is Vogue 2965.
