Finding Fabric Shops in Paris
Paris Tissus is one of my favorites, because it carries a small but very nice range of suiting fabrics.
5 Place Saint-Pierre (18th arrondissement)
Tissus Reine is one of the largest fabric stores in Paris and stocks a wide range of goods, all reasonably priced: bridal fabrics and lace, Liberty cotton, dupioni, and home decor fabrics, as well as patterns and notions.
MarchestPierre.comAlso a large store, Marché St. Pierre has multiple floors and a similarly broad offering.

I ripped the pages from the magazine an tucked it in my bag. We were only in Paris for four days and on the third, I ditched the guys, hailed a taxi, and went to Janssen & Janssen. Thank you, Threads and Susan! I am the owner of a glorious meter and a half of exquisite fabric for a Chanel jacket! I also found why there are no remnants. When there was extra at the end of the bolt, it was included in my piece for no extra charge!
