Re: sequin fabric source suggestions... & HELP!
- Thank you so much for the suggestions, Don. I got a swatch sent from
Britex but it isn't what we are after. I will try the 17th and Mission
shop. In the mean time, I have made a discovery via my friend Claudia,
the owner of tutu.com and it is Mary Jo's fabrics, and they have some
black sequined at $20.00 a yard, and it was 42" wide. I also ordered
a swatch from a NYC fabric supplier. It is much more expensive, we
shall say, but 60" wide. Waechter's had an EXQUISITE sequined fabric
(silver =( of course) with black organza ribbon roses, which mimic the
black and white ribbon roses on this coat she is basing the entire
outfit on. It is perfect-on a black lining fabric..but she won't
budge. So, while I make the muslin I will get those swatches and get
up to SF to Mission-that visit may negate the other two..it would be
nice to stay local (well, Livermore isn't that local to SF, but BART
I shall keep you updated on the great sequin search!
