|Cut Fabrics on W. 38th Street, where I found a white terry that's perfect.|
I've been trolling the Garment District these past two weeks, just to see what's out there for spring and summer fabrics at bargain prices. Here's what has caught my eye:
Chic Fabrics: Check out their silk prints, cotton jerseys, cotton prints, border prints
H&M Fabrics: Decent selection of cotton prints, including some heavier weight cotton suitable for coats and jackets
Fabrics for Less: Found hot pink terry cloth there for $5/yd, but after three washings it was still bleeding like crazy and felt rough to the touch.
Spandex House: Seersucker lycra that looks just like cotton woven seersucker, plus denim knit
Cut Fabrics (across from Spandex House): White lasered terry cloth knit, perfect for beach coverups and just what I was looking for! Very soft and lightweight. $8/yd.
Paron's Annex: Many lightweight blends in the $4/yd barrel suitable for summer projects. I bought five yards of a viscose blend that I plan on making a long circle skirt out of.
NY Elegant Fabrics: They do have madras here [NY Sewer] but it's pricey ($25/yd, if memory serves). Good selection of cotton prints in spring and summer colors, but no bargains here.
Gray Line Linen: Best source of linen in all colors and weights, excellent prices for the quality.
