Even in NYC I couldn't find summer weight deep royal blue/purple fabric that's so popular in ready-to-wear. I'm looking for color that's between deep blue and deep purple. If you know of a source, I'd be very grateful.

I was into royal blue for awhile, and I got royal blue knits and charmeuse from www.fabric.com.
I think they also have them in different materials.

If you're interested in linens, fabrics-store.com has some purples that might fit your description. It's easy to order samples.

Check out the blues too -- ultramarine and royal in different weights. When you click on a color, there are sometimes sample projects shown at the bottom of the page. Sounds like some of the colors lose intensity with washing, so keep that in mind.

ETA: Just came across this gorgeous Royal Blue Dotted Swiss Cotton Voile at FabricMart. Only 1.25 yds left, but enough for a simple summer blouse. I'm on a fabric fast, otherwise I'd be getting this myself.

You didn't mention what kind of fabric you want. Did you try Mood? They have basics in a wide variety of colors.
