I found a really great Etsy shop that custom makes dresses, and they are willing to use fabric that you source yourself. Which is a great idea! So I'm interested in hearing about any online sources you have for cool, vintage-inspired patterned fabrics. Maybe on Etsy?

reprodepot.com was the first thing that came to mind, but it looks like they closed up shop for the moment. Boo!

Okay, it's not exactly cheap but emmaonesock.com is where I go to fabric-gasm. Also, ebay is amazing if you're willing to put in the effort. I am becoming a textiles fanatic and now that I have lots of knowledge about fiber I am less afraid to buy online. If you had a design/drape in mind you should ask the custom dress-makers exactly what you need for fabric right down to the percentages.

Well this is the shop:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/LaMadeleine

She has the designs already figured out but she takes your measurements and creates a piece for your size.
huh. I will have to convo her and ask, because you're right, I kind of need to know the weight of the fabric required.

Spoonflower!! It's a bit expensive, but they have awesome fabrics and you can even design your own. I spend hours on their website some days.

I was not happy with spoon flowers quality - very thin.

Oh, that store's stuff is amazing and will look so on you. You can get any light to medium weight woven fabric you want! Hell, I don't know what you're going for, but even a heavy-weight would be great. Is this a winter dress? Or an all seasons dress? Even if emma one sock is too expensive you could still look around there (in wovens, this vintage stuff doesnt work for knits) to see what they suggest for seasons.
