I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right place, it's been a long time since I've been active on here.
Anyway, I need both help in finding the right fabric and possible an online store to purchase it.
I'm making this costume from a video game:
Authentically, it's supposed to be buckskin, but I can't get a hold of that. The closest thing is suede, correct? Does anyone know a place where I can find a rich blue suede that doesn't cost me an arm and a leg (and Jo-Ann's, while they didn't have the correct color, they had the texture I wanted and it was $19/yd :/). Micro-suede, or anything that feels and is heavy like suede, will work for me as well. I'd prefer something under $12/yd.
Actually, if anyone knows of a store in the Chicago-area that may have the right fabric, that'd work, too.
