Hello AT, There's a wall in my bedroom that I'd like to hide by hanging a ceiling-to-floor curtain. It's a wall with 2 closets so I would still need access to it. I've seen the various recommendations people had for the hardware on AT, but I'd like to know what *fabric* I should buy, and where I can get it for cheap? What I'm really trying to achieve is that Delano Hotel / Shore Club look, where it's somewhat sheer but still not completely see-through, and has a nice heft to the fabric so it drapes nicely. And I'm in NYC so any stores in Manhattan or Brooklyn would be perfect. Thanks! Carmen

Dear Carmen, NYC is a great place to buy fabric; you just gotta look. Here are our top picks for fabric shops in the city. You will find a large selection and good prices at all of them. B&J Fabrics Joe's Fabrics Harry Zarin As far as the look you are going for, we would look for white cotton/linen mixes with a sheer quality. Actually Pottery Barn has pretty nice ones in linen that let light through and aren't too expensive. This could be an easier option.
