I'm going to be in Paris in August. Would anyone know of any good shops for fine dressmaking fabrics? Thanks.

Lucky you! And lucky for you, Georgene just published a great blog post on just this topic -- Paris by Design. We will be in Paris briefly in May and I hope to check out a few places. DH is a very patient shopper!

And here's another discussion.

And yet more.

It's hard to go wrong with Tissus Reine to start with.

This site has gathered some addresses for Paris (most of them have already been mentioned at PR, though ), as well as for other parts of France, if you'll be traveling outside of Paris.

In case you haven't checked them out yet, don't miss the many reviews for Paris in the "Store Reviews" section here at PR.

Have a fun trip!

And, oh joy, there have been some wonderful changes in the Parisian Public Potty Scene.

I reviewed a bunch of Paris fabric shops last summer, too (including on the strange payment dance you do at Tissues Dreyfus on the different flors!), and I actually just sewed up one of my Parisian fabrics last week...

Sorry to bump this thread, but I just saw there's a fantastic-looking Madame Gres exhibition on until July, too...

If you are coming to Paris and have listed fabric shops to see , you might like to know that Maupiou on Rue de la Paix is closing down at the end of December 2011. At the moment they have a clearance sale .
