Stores I'm Loving: Chic Fabrics

Chic Fabrics (225 W. 39th Street) has gone from being one of my least favorite stores in the Garment District to my current go-to store for my summer sewing needs. If you're looking for pretty silk prints or cotton knits at bargain prices, this is your store. In the last two weeks I bought a silk print ($10.99/yd) to make a pair of Isabel Marant style trousers for me, and I scored some navy cotton jersey ($3.99/yd) to knock off a BCBG top for a family member. You'll see names like Tahari and Nanette Lepore on the bolts there. If you haven't been to Chic recently, you owe it to yourself to stop by.


  1. Thanks for the tip. That's one I don't know well.

  2. Thanks, this isn't one I know either.

  3. I must have bought something from them at some point -- their business card is in my NY notebook! I have no clue what I bought there, and the pics don't jog my memory. Next time, I guess I should write it down! lol

  4. I'm not sure I've ever popped in there. I'll have to put it on my hit list.
