My dress is Justin Alexander and the lace is soo pretty! (picture below) I wanted to use just a small bit on my shoes. The dress store priced one yard of it for $100!
Anyone have ideas on how I can find something similar to it, or get it cheaper? I don’t need much of it, and a yard was the smallest cut they could sale me.
Thanks so much for your help!

Do you live in NYC? You can go to the garment district.

Do they have to cut it/hem it for you? You could ask for the remnants. Other than that, I have no suggestion

Find a store in your area that sells millinery supplies. Here in Vancouver that would be Dressew.
Here are reviews of Manny’s Millinery on http://www.yelp.com:
You can buy individual or clustered lace flowers and other designs. Take the pic of your dress on your phone so you can match.

Can they remove two of the flowers without ruining the dress. I love that dress and dreamed about it. Other than that go to a fabric store. Try Etsy and do a alchemy on it. That is a great way to get things that you can’t find elsewhere.
