    Everything, but cotton, is cheaper. You didn't think you were the only lazy person on the planet did you? Your time might be more economically placed in making what you want yourself from what I've seen of what gets sold these days. Partially because of this, if I really wanted to get something for a girlfriend I'd rather find out what she likes, get her measurements, and make it myself (yes I sew, no I'm not taking requests [or orders, ETJs]). Higher likelihood she'll enjoy it, I get to enjoy seeing her in it, and I get the satisfaction of making something.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Thanks CC, those are actually two places I've never been to before. I will look them over tommarow.

    Well, thanks for deciding that I'm lazy I suppose. I cannot sew, I don't have the patience, time or S for it. So that's out.

    I get most of my clothes from Ross or Marshall's type-stores. It does take a bit of energy to sort through everything, admittedly.

    I actually like most current fashions, but I'm not a fan of the skinny jean. Why would you WANT to make your hips look bigger by comparison? And I will not even speak of the whole guys-in-skinny-jeans thing.

    This is really just a whine...


    I basically only shop on Ebay, but I do go to some thrift shops sometimes. I also don't like fashion now. The trends are so ugly. Ugh.

    Heart,

    I suggest you check out freepeople.com. They are pretty expensive (well at least for me they are!). They have nice dresses there. Hope that helps!

    Oh, You can get cotton dresses on americanapparel.net.

    Yikes! If my INFP daughter ever finds this site, I'm going to have to start shelling out some real cash for her duds.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    ...I know!! Let's hope your daughter doesn't come across that site. It's so expensive. I only buy things that are on sale there, but even then it's still pricey!

    Maybe this will motivate me to finally teach her to sew. I'm not great, but if I teach her the basics she could probably surpass me in no time.

    FWIW, I can sew clothes, but getting a good fit is no mean feat. Impressive, Runvardh!
