    I would have to say JoAnn's for fabric also. But make sure you sign up for their emails to get on their mailing list and email blast. They send 40 to 50% off coupons all the time. (Only good on reg. price items) I was there this weekend and all upholstery material was on sale 40% off, didn't check the other material, but probably the same. I never buy material without a coupon or sale. Sometimes the saleperson will let you use more than one coupon per transaction.

    Also, J Crew has bridesmaid dress that are a little different, only thing is when they are on sale, I think they can't be returned if they don't fit.

      Oh Alyssa, I dn't know why I didn't say this earlier but my sister and I just hit the fabric jackpot. We couldn't find what we wanted at Joann's (orange and blue fabrics) so we went to Jo-Mar. It used to be in Lansdale, which is kinda close to were I live, but it recently moved to Norristown. It's a kinda ghetto discount department style store (Marshalls, Ross). The majority of the stuff in there wasn't anything you would buy, but I bought my mom the cutest dress for $5 and my neice and nephew hats for $1 and I bought myself a red trench coat for $10! Anway, that was totally off topic. The point of this post was to say that they have fabric out the wazoo! And it was mostly all $1-$2/yard. It was awesome. I bought probably over 20 yards of different fabrics for my sisters projects and we spent like no money. It's on Markley Street (1721 I think is the addrsss, if I remember) right at 202, in Norristown.

        Carly - we are going with the VS dresses so that whole sewing project thing is over with (i am relieved!) BUT this is great b/c my mom is going to make all of our table linens for the Rehearsal dinner and Reception so i am going to tell her about it!

        isn't there also a Jo-Ann up on Grant Ave near the Blvd?

          No sure where they are in the city... The one I usually go to is in Quakertown. But Jo-Mar, Jill (my sis) and I were in there for HOURS. We were like, omg, this is fabric HEAVEN! They didn't have much in silks or stuff like that, but they had so many awesome buys. I want to go back. Hahahaaa.
