    Does anybody know where I can get a hold of any 60's style lace or netting, either in a hawaiian style or heavy paisley style, for doing some lace panels, have tried everywhere over here in England and some places in the States, but so far no luck, and am getting desperate now!! HELP! Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. :eek:
     
  2. You mean in a country where damn near EVERY house has lace curtains, you can't find lace?:eek:

    lol lol

    My small home town in Finland is famous of one single thing and that is some freaking old lace and craftmanship how to make it...... I've never thought that I could use their models in a kustom car..... :) Maybe you can use google image and scissors for a template...

    Back in 71 I used the girlfriend's kitchen tablecloth.

    Thanks for all of your help, I think I have managed to find a great heavy design, don't know whether there is enough of it or not, but it is discontinued, so it will have to do!! Will post some photos when the car is done!
    Goober thanks for the bit about every house in England must have lace curtains, you would think so wouldn't you, but not anything Kool enough to put on a car, unless you want butterflies or dolphins!!! Thanks for the link though, I had tried them already, I am actually so fed up with looking at lace websites, I never want to see another one again!!
    Thanks!!;)
