I just started working tailoring, and I've found myself having to buy cloth from the NPCs. Seems a little odd to have to buy the cloth from them to fill BODS they hand out. I read that some people go kill brigands for their clothes, but the flow of cloth from that is SLOW...and when the salvage bag dumps the cloth in my bag as separate little clumps because they are all different colors I get annoyed. So what do you more experienced tailors do? Sheer sheep? Buy from players?
