NSC Question

Where can I find wide lace and a large variety of lace to make some extension slips for my tunics? I have seen some slips that have four different lace lengths and designs all in the same color. Where do I find them?

Hi! Many fabric stores carry lace and lace trims. Also, if you need multiple lace trims in different widths all in the same color, you could find a lace fabric with a fancy edge and cut different width off the edge.

Hope this helps!

    <strong> Ticket 38700 Where can I find wide lace to make floor-length curtains? And where can I find the strips a weights to sew along the bottom? I fell in love with the curtains I made in Germany 25 years ago but haven’t been able to source the fabric or rods since. Help!

    CheepTrims is also a good place to find lace and other trimmings. But they have minimum amounts of purchasing things. https://www.cheeptrims.com/

    What would be the main problems if you only have enough fabric to cut out pattern on the straight cross grain instead of the straight grain.
