The contest bug has bitten again and I'm going to make stretch jeans for the jeans contest. I'm not sure where to go to get a decent stretch denim. Because of who I'm making the jeans for I'd like them to be as stretchy as possible while still within the rules-no more then 5% stretch. Any good online sources? I'll probably make a run to the Fabric Mart store and Pa Fabric outlet in the next 2 weeks, they are always worth a look. I have no faith in Joann's. I'm going to make Jalie 2908, my first run at a Jalie pattern. So, any ideas?

Gorgeous Fabrics, Emma One Sock, and Sawyer Brook usually have great quality. Mood is another good source.

I've found Fabric.com sometimes good and sometimes disappointing. They have lots of coupons and sales and offer free shipping both ways though so it is worth the gamble.
