    Despite ice, snow, cold, and slush abounding, we hear rumors that spring is just around the corner. To celebrate the promise of warmer weather, bluebirds, and daffodils, here is a free pattern for a flirty lace skirt from BurdaStyle...and to make sure you don’t need to leave your cozy home to shop, Britex Fabrics now has lace fabric in our online store. I’m imagining our black floral lace fabric underlined in delicate bud green silk!

  • Bridal Gown and Jacket - by Kelly & Joke

    August 6, 2010 by Britex Fabrics


    Kelly and her good friend (and sewing mentor) Joke made this stunning wedding gown for Kelly’s daughter, Tiffany. The classic long-sleeved jacket was made from 6 ¼ yards of delicate cream colored silk taffeta from Britex Fabrics, and has a beautifully beaded train. Sewing adventures were shared, with Kelly hand-beading one side of the jacket and train, and Joke hand-beading the opposite side! Both professionalism and love shine through in this exceedingly special dress!
