Fwd: Trims for Eowyn's green dress
- Sharing some info on trim from one of our fans.... -Cat-
Hi. I contacted you before about Eowyn's green dress. I wanted to
thank you for all your help on that.
But I also wanted to mention, I went to NYC on Monday to buy the extra
velvet I needed, and to go to MJ Trim to get the trims for the neckline
of the dress that you have listed on your site.
After an hour of confused workers unable to find either trim, they
finally had the woman who is in charge of all orders come and help me.
The trims in the gold color had been sold last week to the Metropolitan
Opera(oh my God, I hate the Met now). The bought all the rolls of both
gold trims. We looked everywhere for similar trims- first me with the
other workers, then me with the woman in charge that I mentioned. There
is nothing similar- and while I was looking the second time around, the
woman told me that really there is nothing similar. That trim style as
unique to the company that made it. Problem is...they went out of
business late last year.
That company produced both trims for the green dress that you had listed
on your site. She told me that MJ will for sure not be getting any more
of the trim in. And she doesn't think they will get anything similar
from any other suppliers.
I was lucky. The Met bought all of both the gold trims, but there was
still some left in a silver color. I'm going to spray paint the trims
in an antique gold.
I only bought half a yard of each. There is still about half a roll
left of each trim. But that's it, once its gone, there is nothing similar.
I just wanted to give you the head's up, in case you want to buy the
remainder of the trims, or in case you want to list on your site that
the trims are going fast and there will be no more, so if someone is
considering the dress they might want to scoop those up right now.
And thank you for posting the trims and the item numbers on your site.
It was a big help, and I probably would have never found the silver ones
if it wasn't for you.
