As far as fabric quality, I imagine the best solution would be to provide your own? I have had a hard time finding what I wanted (for decorating purposes) here locally. I don't know if I just haven't found the right stores, or if the selection/quality really is severely lacking at shops open to the public.
Once I wanted hot pink linen to have custom lampshades made ... I ended up with raw silk because I couldn't find linen (in almost any color) anywhere I looked. When I was looking for purple toile, I looked online, and never did find what I wanted. I looked at new and vintage/antique fabrics both ...
Possibly a really good tailor would also be a source of information about good fabric vendors.
This skirt is fall piece #2 ... I bought 4 for spring, and probably won't buy any more. I need to do a little stockup on PJs/lingerie/loungewear here at some point ... and I would still like another pair of pants. I've been wearing them out faster than I've been buying them. The things I wear at home are looking a bit ragged, or were
I've been tossing shirts that have seen better days on the rag pile. At some point I will likely need to replenish, but I also have some in better shape that I just haven't been wearing. All my favorite cotton tees that are perfectly worn in also have teeny little holes ... I've been realizing for awhile that action was called for, but just didn't want to do it
