Hey there! Just two quick questions: * I need a (listed in order of importance) period, cheap and fast delivering online fabric source. I live in a tiny cityMessage 1 of 55 , Oct 1, 2001View SourceHey there!
Just two quick questions:
* I need a (listed in order of importance) period, cheap and fast
delivering online fabric source. I live in a tiny city in Ohio and
occassionally have access to a Jo-Ann's out of town and I need some
pretty either wool, brocade, CHEAP silk that doesn't look CHEAP,
and/or good overskirt fabric and fine linen for my partlet and coif
and epualettes for an event in two weeks. Uh-oh. Any suggestions? If
worse comes to absolute worse I'll head up to Jo-Ann's and buy some
wool and quickly make up bodice, an open skirt closed for now, and
Whew. Basically, good, accurate, fast, cheap fabric source online.
* What's the best way to make trim? The only trim I can find is gaudy
and fake looking so I've decided to make my own. Suggestions?
Anything and everything will be appreciated!!
Thanks oh so very much,

and I did have enough - I have about 40 left over.
Even if I had decided to bead *every* intersection I
would have had enough. But as I chose not to bead that
section of the partlet below the neckline (it would
have been a waste and uncomfortable) I got leftovers.
Thanks for the offer anyway. Oh, and I did wash the
organza, but there's no loss of body. :)
