I would like to purchase some lightweight cotton jersey fabric to use with the drape drape book patterns. I am fairly new in working with knits and would like to find some less expensive (but not necessarily lesser quality) fabric to start with as I expect some experimentation at first. I have researched this but am wondering if there is an inside tip on the best place/price for jersey online.

Thanks for any input! :-)

High End Fabrics has lovely quality knits and good prices. Sometimes the shipping seems high but the service is so fast it is near instant gratification so I find it worth the cost. He also has an etsy.com store if you don't want to deal with ebay.

I often use jersey sheets for practice.
Lots of fabric at a good price. Sometimes you can find them at places like Ross.

SewLiz....Have you ever used the micro modal fabric? It appears to be very drapey..very fluid. Anyone know if it is tricky to work with?

What I had found was http://www.girlcharlee.com/ and some sale items at fabric.com. Glad to have another resource.

Those fabrics look very nice. I love that he shows yardage and drape. So much easier to visualize using it than a small square.

I just happened to see your post today while searching for something else. I have purchased large quantities, but you can buy small amounts, from Koshtex. The owner is very nice and he sent me some nice samples. I was only looking for pfd fabrics because I'm a dyer, but he carries colors in lots of different Lycra blends. The modal and micro modal he sent me is lovely, and I have yards of the modal Lycra which I am dyeing and painting to my heart's content. The website is www.koshtex.com. So far, I find them easy to work with, but I'm making simple drapey tanks.
