Casa Del Tessuto, Rome
Casa dei Tessuti, Florence

While Casa Del Tessuto feels like a warehouse, this lovely store is a step back in time with lovely old fashioned service. The service is very personalised which can also be a little intimidating if you're just browsing but the fabric are gorgeous. They have the most wonderful selection of lace and linen. Once again be prepared for the prices, they are much higher than I'm use to.
small fabric store, Milan (sorry, can't recall details - not helpful, I know)
This was a stumble upon small fabric store in the fabulously upmarket shopping district near the Duomo. Again, the prices were up there so I immediately gravitated towards the remnants on sale and snagged a delightful piece of Italian made silk blend fabric.
If any one else has some tips, I'd love to hear about them for future trips.
