I have tried DSI & Chrisanne and I have scoured eBay, Etsy & Amazon

Can anyone else find me any?

Have you looked at Edda Hsu?

PolkadotsAndMoonbeams Fri 05-Aug-16 17:51:13

And what are you thinking by spectacular?

Katymac Fri 05-Aug-16 17:56:09

This is the best I have found

But it's a bit pedestrian really? Maybe I am unrealistic

PolkadotsAndMoonbeams Fri 05-Aug-16 17:57:49

So you want something that looks a bit like guipure but is actually stretch?

Maybe or the very fine eyelash lace

The dance florals look a bit net curtain-y?

Something different

(BTW bookmarking that site for next dance dress - thank you)

My university society's first set of matching dresses had flowers cut from net curtains on them - all about effect from a distance isn't it? grin

My last dress was from Edda Hsu, that's why I thought of it - it has some stuff that's a bit different.

This site maybe?

this is interesting

& I can't work out if this is printed fabric or lace

The second could be either I think, the description's not very clear. You can ask for a free sample though.

What are you making?

Well I have been asked for a crystalled panelled lace dress with a train of feathers

But I have pointed out you will see all the seams unless it is lined so suggested stretch lace possibly a mistake

So I'm thinking Paso Double?

Have you had a look on etsy? You might find something there

Have you tried craftswomanfabrics.com ?
Bit spenny though......

Katymac Sat 06-Aug-16 16:28:18

Not found anything on Etsy much

But that other site is lovely (not what I want but still lovely grin)

Could you put guipure all over a nude stretch mesh? Or get her to find her own material grin

I wondered that but where do you put the opening? Under the arm?

Non-strtch over stretch would be good I guess - I am working on them finding their own, it's not going well - I my give up
