Okay, so these patterns are free, but I have yet to find free fabric! Well, there is something close to it.

Fabric.com is one of my favorite places to score dress fabric because you can get a lot of it at a cheap price. The site has oodles of info about the fabrics, with lots of patterns and types to choose from.

I highly recommend scoring your fabric for cheap, especially since shipping is free on all orders over $35.00.
