Hi! This is my first post as a Britex Guest Blogger and I look forward to writing many more in the future! I’m Morgan, who, along with my husband Matt, owns Thread Theory Designs
, a menswear sewing pattern company. You can read more about us on my Britex Guest Blogger
profile or on our blog
. You’ll likely be seeing a number of menswear projects from me but I’ll be sure to throw in a smattering of tutorials for the dresses and things that I sew for myself too!
For my first tutorial using Britex Fabrics, I have selected the sumptuous Midweight Tweedy Fern & Taupe Wool Blend Knit in order to make a Strathcona Henley for Matt and to show you how to sew the Henley placket. This fabric is wonderfully unusual – I know I wouldn’t find anything of this weight and gorgeous texture, let alone with a lovely wool content, at any of my local fabric shops!
