I have been on a mission to find some lightweight summer scarves in white or light colors, yesterday I grabbed some very light cotton from my stash, but it lacked a good drape and the cotton grabbed my shirt.

Today while walking through the mall I saw a gorgeous scarf at Nordstroms which was a gauzey silk cashmere way out of my price range. Anyone have some online sources for nice fabrics like this? Doesn't have to be this fabric, could be rayon or something with poly blends, but with some natural fabric in it and lightweight.

Silk chiffon. Emma One Sock, Thai Silks, Super Silk, Dharma Trading, Waechter's Fabrics, Denver Fabrics, Elliot Berman textiles, Gorgeous Fabrics, Fine Fabrics, Fabric Mart, Sawyer Brook...that'll get you started.

And it's a slippery slippery slope...bwahahahahahaha.

I'm just finishing a blouse made with a silk-cotton voile...super floaty and drapey...perfect for a scarf. I got it at Emma One Sock.
