I am looking to get into some serious sewing. I want to be able to make my own clothes but I don’t know where to look for the right fabric and patterns. I’m fairly inexperienced but I’m usually pretty good at self-teaching (ie watching/reading tutorials). What I eventually want to be able to do is sew things like this:
My question is: Where would one go to find the appropriate fabrics for such a project? I know most fabrics like the one used in the link are specifically designed and made for large retailers but I just need a similar type of fabric in terms of texture/stretch so that it’s appropriate for the article of clothing I’m trying to sew.
Also, I know that this type of thing is probably too complicated for an amateur to sew but mostly I just want to know where to get good fabrics and possibly patterns.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
