  • Hollywood Vest by Wanett

    November 11, 2013 by Wanett

    Another beautiful project by Wanett of Sown Brooklyn brings us closer to the inevitable truth that winter is approaching. In her second Guest Blogger post, Wanett tells us how she modified a jacket pattern to make a quick wooly and wintery vest. For inspiration, take a look at our online wool fabrics currently on sale; Coating sale ends November 14 and Mid/Light Weight Wool sale runs from November 15-30. --- For this, my second Britex project, I got to work with one of my FAVORITE fabrics (again!!): WOOL!!!

  • Forest Creature Shirt and Wool Waistcoat - Avery

    September 17, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    Here is Avery in another Britex Fabrics-inspired, and curiously debonair shirt and vest. Both are sewn from McCall’s pattern #2447. The shirt is populated with whimsical forest creatures in bright hues, and the waistcoat is made of pea green wool. This is just the thing to wear to the next way-too-gloomy poetry reading. Although we are currently out of this forest animal fabric, new wonderfully wacky cottons are always coming to Britex.
