Ive been shopping - vintage patterns!  I just love them, I bought several, my favourite being this one:

Cant wait to sew it!

(Pictures of the other ones in my blog:  http://sewtheysay.blogspot.com)

Now Ill need some great fabric to go with the patterns.  Does anyone know about an internet store that sells vintage fabric, or vintage "look-alike" fabric?  Suggestions for fabric qualities and stores are highly appreciated  Smiley Smiley Smiley

http://www.reprodepot.com/ sells reproduction fabrics. I also would suggest the thrift stores in your area. It will take a bit of searching, but you can find amazing stuff there Smiley

Thank you, Ill check our Reprodepot right away.  As for thrift stores - Im from Norway, and Im not quite sure what that is?  Or if it exists here... Are they second-hand stores?

 Oh, sorry! Yes they are second hand stores. Rummage sales (I'm not sure what you would call them :/) are also good places to find fabric.
