  • Silk Organza – The Perfect Addition to Any Sewing Room

    May 28, 2013 by Lilacs & Lace

    Hello everyone!  I am back with a new vintage dress and an underlining tutorial. Along with this yummy fuchsia chenille, I received a length of silk organza for this project. Silk organza really is a miracle fabric, in my opinion.  It is crisp, lightweight, and can perform so many different functions.  First off, it makes truly beautiful garments, especially when embroidered.  At the other end of the spectrum, it can make an excellent press cloth.  Tear it into strips, and it can help to stabilize a zipper opening.  I even substitute organza for fusible interfacing on facings.  I could go on and on, but perhaps I should get back on point!

  • Stylin' Overalls - Secretary

    December 27, 2010 by Britex Fabrics


    Secretary made these chic overalls for her nephew, “Little Hog”. They are sewn out of sturdy Japanese cotton/linen from Britex that is adorned with wee planes, helicopters and floaty little clouds. We love Secretaries attention to detail; the slash pockets are lined with natural linen, she used brass snaps for fasteners, and she fashioned these pants from a vintage pattern. “Little Hog” is going to be one stylin’ dude! Japanese cotton/linen is 44” wide and can be found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.
