Sources for modern clothing patterns/fabrics?

For anyone with sewing experience, can you recommend sources for modern clothing patterns and fabrics? For style, think Anthropologie, but the less frippy pieces - simple, easy, drapey. For fabric, I'd like soft, high-quality cottons in a good range of colors. (I never see that kind of thing at fabric stores, so I'm guessing I'll have to order online.)

I have a sewing machine and some experience (I made a quilt last year and have made dresses from vintage patterns in the past), and I'd like to try making some everyday pieces for myself. Simple to start - basic tops, maybe dresses. I'm a standard size and pretty easy to fit.
Books, websites, and patterns are welcome. I'm combing through Google, but there's a huge array of options (and like 90% of them are for kids clothes), so I'm hoping someone with experience can help me narrow them down.
