Tailoring uses cloths as main materials, but you don't need any gathering profession to gather cloths, so Tailoring can be combined with any gathering profession. One other popular choice is Enchanting because you can craft a bunch of cloths then disenchant them and use the dust and essences to level your enchanting.

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.
300 - 325
460 x Bolt of Netherweave - 2760 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 also just stop making them when you reach 325 and only make more when you need them. Then you will only need around 450 x Netherweave Cloth to reach 325.
325 - 340
90 x Bolt of Imbued Netherweave - 270 Bolt of Netherweave, 180 Arcane Dust
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 skill give points. But you should make around 12-13 of them until you reach at least 335 even if you don't want to make all of them now.
340 - 345
5 x Netherweave Boots - 30 Bolt of Netherweave, 10 Knothide Leather, 5 Rune Thread
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 Robe - 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.
You can also make Netherweave Tunic, it costs the same.
360 - 375
15 x Imbued Netherweave Tunic - 90 Bolt of Imbued Netherweave, 30 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.
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!
