I bought this wonderful 1950's gold lame from a dealer friend who lives in France. He has the most amazing stall absolutely full of of French haberdashery, trims and fabric. He had bought out an old haberdashery shop somewhere in the South of France and had boxes of this gold lame and also gold metal thread. His stall is like an Aladins cave, fabric everywhere, boxes and boxes of trims piled on top of each other. this is normally where I salvage my French fabrics from. Long may it continue.
