Hi, Britex readers! I am Shams, and I blog over at Communing with Fabric. I am excited to join the ranks of Britex bloggers, and I am happy to share my first project as guest blogger!
There is a bounty of riches to be found on britexfabrics.com. Where should a newbie guest blogger begin?
As I love border prints, and I also have a soft spot for paisley fabrics, it didn’t take me long to settle on this beautiful 100% viscose panel and border print from Italy. I made a bias, V-neck top using view C of Vogue 7906 (an out-of-print Vogue Basic Design) as a starting point.
You might ask (and rightfully so), “Is this fabric a panel print? Or is it a border print? Which is it?”
It’s BOTH! Click here to read more »
Adam, a local tailor, made his client a suave and chic tailored jumpsuit of brilliant red viscose from Britex Fabrics. Britex Fabrics’ associate, Douglas, assisted Adam. We love the modest plunging neckline and sparklingly bright color. Adam says, “I am an independent designer working in Portland for the last twelve years. I have a collection of men’s and women’s pieces, as well as custom design that I create to order for a clientele. I design, pattern draft, fit, cut, and construct every garment myself in my studio. I am inspired by fabric, color, texture, and finding the perfect fit. Because my main focus is on fit and construction, my designs have often been called “classic”, although I personally strive to strike a timeless balance between fabric, line, and function.” This lovely 100% viscose is available is imported from Italy and on Britex Fabrics’ 2nd floor, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 415-392-2910.
When scanning my syllabus at the start of the pattern making course I took last semester, I was most excited about learning how to draft cowl neck tops. When we finally got to it toward the end of the course, I was surprised how simple they actually were! Using a basic bodice sloper, it’s just a matter of lowering the neckline and slash and spreading to create fullness. The self-facing in the front keeps it pretty no matter how the cowl falls! Clearly, putting my new knowledge to use was in the forefront of my mind when I had the opportunity to use one of the fabrics from the Novelty category at Britex. This unusual ruby and black sheer viscose fabric seemed like a fun and modern choice for a fairly classic cowl shape. Click here to read more »
