If you still haven't decided about your second profession, I think Tailoring goes well with Enchanting because you don't need a gathering profession to support either of them, and you can also use Enchanting to disenchant the items you made with Tailoring. Check out my TBC Classic Enchanting leveling guide if you want to level Enchanting.
I recommend trying Zygor's 1-70 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide will help you to reach level 70 a lot faster.

1 - 75
You will need around 59x Coarse Thread for the 1-75 part. You can buy them from the Tailoring Supplies vendor near your trainer. Use SHIFT + MOUSE CLICK when buying from the vendor, then type in how many you want. (the maximum amount you can buy at once is 20 for threads and 10 for dyes)
I don't recommend buying all the dyes and thread at once because it will fill up your inventory and you won't have that much bag space to craft items. I'll list the needed Dyes and Thread for each part separately.

Burning Crusade Classic (300-375)
You can learn the new TBC Tailoring skill from the Master Tailoring trainers in Hellfire Peninsula. Horde players can learn it from Dalinna at Thrallmar and Alliance players can learn it from Hama at Honor Hold.
Rune Threads are sold by your trainer.
300 - 325
496 x Bolt of Netherweave - 2976 Netherweave Cloth
You will use all of these later so it's better to make all of them now for free skill points.
You can stop making them at 325 and only make more when you need them, then you will only need around 450 x Netherweave Cloth to reach 325.
325 - 340
102 x Bolt of Imbued Netherweave - 306 Bolt of Netherweave, 204 Arcane Dust
You will need a Mana Loom to craft Bolt of Imbued Netherweave. It's right next to the NPC who sells the recipe, so you don't have to go anywhere.
There are cheaper alternatives like the Netherweave Bag, but you will need at least 90 of these to reach 375, so it's just better to make them now while they still give skill points. Even if you don't want to make all of them now you should make around 12-13 of them until you reach at least 335.
340 - 345
5 x Netherweave Boots - 30 Bolt of Netherweave, 10 Knothide Leather, 5 Rune Thread
This recipe is taught by your trainer in Hellfire Peninsula, so you have to go back.
You have to make more than 5 if you didn't make the 90 Bolt of Imbued Netherweave in the previous step.
345 - 360
20 x Netherweave Tunic - 160 Bolt of Netherweave, 40 Rune Thread
The recipe is sold by Eiin in Shattrath City. It will be yellow for the last 5 points, so you might have to make a few more.
Once you reach level 60 and Tailoring skill 350, you may begin a quest to learn one of three specializations: Mooncloth Tailoring, Shadoweave Tailoring, or Spellfire Tailoring.
For information on how to choose a specialization, please see my separate guide:
360 - 375
17 x Imbued Netherweave Tunic - 102 Bolt of Imbued Netherweave, 34 Netherweb Spider Silk
The recipe is sold by Arrond in Shadowmoon Valley. You need to have a neutral Scryers reputation to be able to talk to him. Fortunately, it's not BoP, so you can ask someone else to buy it for you if the NPC is hostile to you. (or just buy it from the Auction House)
You can also make Imbued Netherweave Robe, it costs the same, and it's sold by the same NPC.
Both recipes will be yellow for the last 5 points, so it's possible you have to make more than 17 to reach 375.
Congratulations on reaching 375! Please send feedback about the guide if you think there are parts I could improve, or you found typos, errors, wrong material numbers!
