Wanted - Black lace and PVC! OR perhaps VELVET (see PS)?????
« on: January 25, 2018, 07:20:49 AM »
OK so a friend has asked me to alter a basque - it's black PVC and deep black lace (if your imagination is running riot the actual item IS just as you are thinking!)
I need a piece of black PVC 1' long and 10" wide and about a foot of heavy black lace 10" deep - have any of you got anything laying around I could buy off you please?
It's a"just job" (could you just.........??) so I don't want to order a FQ of PVC - even assuming they sell such a thing!
Thanks for reading ladies

Just had a thought a bit of black velvet would do and I could alter the front ties to velvet ribbon rather than the PVC laces they are  - if anyone have an offcut of black velvet OR PVC I would be most grateful!!!!!

I think most of the peeps at TSP are 10 years plus past such things!!!!    :o

Although I do (IIRC) have a container of various rubber items slowly deteriorating in the loft somewhere!

You could try eBay for a remnant or offcuts... I haven’t ventured into sewing PVC/lace.... although some of the theatrical/dancer costume folks may have either....

Imi.... I’m shocked  :o fancy letting good rubber deteriorate in the loft ;)

I had some pieces of black PVC which had been lying around for a few years, but sold them on ebay a couple of years ago...(I also had white, gold and a  :x  sickly shade of pink.)

I've had a quick look, but don't have any of it left.  :(

It's such a nuisance having to try to find suitable matching fabrics.

I do have some black lace, but no PVC.  I'll dig out what I have later to see if it's suitable.

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Past such things?  Oooh, you never know... no... you're probably right  :[

Various rubber items eh?   :P  It's all coming out now  0_0

EDIT  Sorry, I can't help with the PVC or lace, good luck in your search.

I have some black pleather but suspect it's not shiny enough for what you want.

Glad to have brightened up your Thursday - made my eyes bleed just looking at to to be fair-
Ellabella is your pleather just off cuts or a big piece as I can't find anything on eBay to suit!? Just had a tour of the charity shops in town and didn't have much joy in any of them either.
Woe, woe and thrice woe!  :D :D :D

Sorry lizzielogs but it was what everyone else wrote that made me laugh out loud.

I have some 'Jet Black Crushed Stretch Velvet Dress Fabric' I bought just before Christmas and haven't used and have more than enough to give you some. If you think it may be suitable then just let me know how much you need and I will send it to you tomorrow morning? It's a nice weight and great quality.

Lizzy

p.s.I didn't see that velvet may do until now.

When looking for the pleather I found a couple of off cuts of shinier pvcish stuff.

One is 18" long and is 3" at its narrowest and about 8" wide for the majority of its length.  The other is 13" by 11".

If either of these are any good PM me your address and I'll pop them in the post for you.
