    Hello Aibby,

    Hi, thanks for the reply. We went to France and really I was unable to find any markets selling fabric. We stayed in LaRochelle and onway back stopped in Rennes. Will return to France again thsi Summer driving through Paris this time. So will be able to check out this market.Thanks

    Hello Aibby,

    It is probably too late now but I compiled a little list of fabric stores in Paris on my blog www.chinesefrogsinparis.com

    Check-it out if you have time. For the other questions, I haven’t seen the supermarkets selling fabric but then again within Paris the supermarkets are really tiny and only sell food. for the dress form (probably you already have one), I would strongly suggest not to buy it from France as it is extraordinarily expensive. If you’re lucky you would be able to catch a good deal on the net, but going into a shop would easily set you back around 2 – 300 euros.

    I hope I could have helped you a bit even though it’s a bit too late now.

    Best wishes
