Wide stripe fabric sources?

I'm in search of wide-stripe woven apparel fabric. By wide I mean maybe 2 inches or so, each stripe, or more. Kind of like this striped dress on polyvore.

I guess my question would be if anyone knows of a source (I would take either horizontal or vertical) and also, any ideas on internet search terms to use? If I look for shirting fabric, I get lots of narrow stripe fabrics, and for wide stripe fabrics I end up getting home-dec weight results. Wide stripes seem to be so hard to find for apparel sewing. I'd like a color alternating with white, and some narrow stripes in addition would be ok too. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Thank you so much!

That fabric is t-shirt fabric, according to the description. Try searching "wide stripe knit fabric." I got lots of google results that seem like what you're looking for, and there are lots of colors in various places. I hope this helps!

Thanks! I did get more with those search terms. There seem to be a lot on etsy that I hadn't seen before. I would love to find some woven as well....I'll just keep trying since I don't need it just yet. I wonder why stripes seem to be so popular in RTW clothing, yet striped fabric is hard to come by.

My brand new Hancocks flyer that starts September 27 has some wide stripes on page 4.
