I need to get some fabric to make a 'toile' or mock up of clothes. But the cheapest material I can find in the UK seems to range from 2.50-3.00 (polycottons, lining and curtain lining). Is this the cheapest I'm going to find or is there some other material which is cheaper?

And is there a UK equivalent to the US Joannes?

Love your avatar. Do you have any warehouse-type fabric shops in your area? Some people use old woven or knit sheets. Thrift shops?
