Fabulous sewing/costume resources

Looking for the pattern for a Korean Han-Bok or an Edwardian swimming costume? How about a Rosie the Riveter costume? I know where you can go for that.

I think I purchased my first pattern from Folkwear about 15 years ago, and they have a nice selection of period and regional costume patterns.

I've purchased quite a bit of fine fabric at Kay's in Richardson, but I couldn't find them a couple months ago when I drove down Arapaho-- I hope they have moved and haven't closed? I've not seen their equal when it came to fine fabrics. If you know where they are now, I'd love to hear about it.

One bright spot looks to be the great selection at Fabrique, also in Richardson. I haven't been there yet, but I love the quality of what I've seen online, and their laces and trims look superb. :)

After I posted that bolt of silk dupioni a couple weeks back, you may have surmised I've gotten the sewing bug of late. I'll let you know as things progress. :)

But Kay's on Arapaho closed (last year). The son had been running it after his mom
died & he just could not keep it going.

Thanks for your fine blogging.
