09-27-2010, 11:29 AM
This is my first cfostume and i need a bit of help.
I'm doing a Kotone/lyra costume from pokemon and am totally lost when it comes to fabric and how to sew her overalls/shorts thing.
I need a good online store where i can find good fabric to use, since the only store that sells fabric in my town recently stopped.

Why not use a deep indigo midweight denim? That's what they always seemed like to me.

Failing that, I suppose a blue twill would also work.

Fabric.com (http://fabric.com/) is a good site- their prices are very reasonable and they offer swatches. Denver fabrics (http://www.denverfabrics.com/) and JoAnn's (http://www.joann.com/joann/home/home.jsp) online site are the two other sites I use most for ordering fabric online, though beware that neither offer swatches (Denver Fabrics TECHNICALLY does, but only for a very few fabrics..).

Here's a good denim from fabric.com that could work.

And a twill.
