I am not sure if i am the only person to find this frustrating, please when you post up new patterns could you list the fabric suppliers for the sample that is pictured, often in my case the sample picture is what first attracts me, I have just spent 2 hours trying to find a brushed mohair to make the 102 jacket and can not find any at all on the net and none in my local fabric shops that are really quite good all told.
I think you do this in your magazines. it would be so helpful to people (me LOL) if this could be done. some times the photos are so lovely you want to make that actual item in that fabric, not just use the pictures as inspiration and a kick start to my huge imagination.
thank you thankyou if you can!

    I completely agree. There are many patterns on this site that I would BUY if I could find the type of fabric used on the garment in the photo. I do like putting my own spin on things, but often I do like the garment in the picture so much that I would like to closely recreate it. I even emailed customer service at Burda about a specific pattern and its fabric, but have apparently been ignored. Not good.

    I have to say that while I tend not to put up patterns, it’s sometimes quite difficult for me to answer questions about the fabrics we use… Sometimes:

    The fabric has been in the stash so long I cannot remember where I got it! The fabric has been in the stash for more than 25 years and the shop no longer exists! It was a sample piece we bought from the weavers… The fabric was a gift and I don’t know where it came from! It is vintage fabric that is no longer made! We buy it wholesale or from the weavers, by the roll (especially true of silk and bridal projects!). We have no idea who their retailers are… We have commissioned it specially for a project (we did that with some hand embroidered stuff from Kashmir) We bought it from a trader who buys up ex factory stock and there isn’t any more! It was an Ebay purchase! The customer bought it somewhere in Hong Kong…

    You can see our difficulty! Rather than saying where we got it and the price, we tend to say what type of fabric it is… Where we can!
