We have two fabric stores in town, and they're both OK for wovens... but the knits (jersey, polar fleece, ribbing etc) always look droopy and flabby and just sort of cheap and nasty. I see gorgeous knit fabrics in storebought clothes, so they must exist! Can anyone give me a good online source?
I'm specifically after stuff to make baby clothes - you know, stretchy onesies and rompers, and also some basic stretchy pants and long-sleeved tops for DD to wear under dresses come winter. I love the eco-friendly cottony knits I see in fancy baby clothes, with cream and beige stripes and cute, soft colours, but I can't find any! The stuff in our stores isn't just nasty-looking, it's all in garish colours. (And good luck trying to find flannels that don't have big, tacky cartoon characters all over them... actually, I want flannel too, for pyjamas for DD. Anyone?)
