I am in search of recommendations for sources to purchase cloth in the 12-15oz (osy) range for a client.


I don't often make for individual clients so I don't have a feel for what is available and at what price point. I am usually just given what the designer has chosen good, bad or ugly, and deal with it !


It would be great if the source was North American based, but I will consider all ideas right now.


I would need 6yards for a full 1930's style pleated trouser, waistcoat and pleated back jacket with a half belt and patch pockets.

Harrison's P&B range and Dugdales English and Town classics would probably be your best bet, classic designs that wouldn't look out of place from the 20's on. Dugdales is probably a little less expensive and yardage easily purchased online and extremely quick shipping to the States, probably about the same to Canada
Silly Cognoscenti, Drape is for windows!
