Help my mind has gone blank.  I need some more of the elastic that has the sticky surface, you know the one that you use round tops of wedding gowns that clings to the skin to stop the gown slipping down.
Damned if I can remember what they call it or were I got my last lot from. Can anyone help?
It's not easy being this perfekt

Woven elastic with silicone strip @Wawak

I am massively allergic to this thing. Ugly, leaky welt-level reaction...

If you're looking for UK suppliers... I've had one inch elastic with silicone strips from a couple of places but I think that's probably wider than you want. Venacava Design sell that and also one at 12mm. It's pretty expensive, my one inch wide was cheaper.

I got it from MacCulloch & Wallis but Kleins and Tailor Mouse also have it.

I've just bought some from Tailor Mouse.

I hadn't used them before, but I certainly will again - I ordered it on Sunday and received it on Tuesday!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.
