this site and wanted to bring it to everyone's attention. They sell basic fabrics and trim, but the most exciting part is that they sell patterns for a very reasonable price and they have lots of helpful instructions on their site.
With all these free instructions you may be tempted to skip buying a pattern until that moment of truth where you're about to cut into your overpriced brocade. It's just then that you will be glad you spent the $16.95 to benefit from someone else's experience and avoid that inevitable, costly mistake.
NB, I have not seen their products and, therefore, cannot specifically endorse them. I just found lots of great information on their site and I know working with a pattern is usually easier than trying to improvise. (and I've done both on many occasions) If anyone has direct experience with this company, we'd love to hear about it in the comments box.
