Trim sites round-up?

Lady Rosiland...

The knockout trim I used for my Mary, Queen of Scots gown was from http://www.mjtrim.com/

Here is the page where the trim can be found...http://www.mjtrim.com/catalog/product/123526/26955/26955.aspx

Trims on this particular site do run a bit more, but this particular Iron On trim was so worth the expense to get the look I was searching for when I did this gown to recreate as close as I could the Couching style of Embroidery common to the Elizabethan period.

I also order trims from http://www.pillagedvillage.com/ Thewy have trims that work for Medieval through the 18th Century that could be hard to find.

Just a note on cheep trims, while they have fantastic selection there is a minimum purchase amout of 60$ I think it is.... now if you are a trim-a-holic that should be no problem... Or surround your computer monitor with a group of friends & bulk order :)

I haven't purchased anything from them personally, but the person making my wedding gown {way too daunting for me to attempt - I STILL haven't finished my 'simple' skirt!  >:(} recommended that site when we were picking out colors, etc. They have TONS of trims and the prices seem to be reasonable {hence the name, I suppose  ;) }

I just ordered last week another boatload of lace trims in white and black from CheepTrims that I use for Chemises and Men's Shirts.

Lady Rosalind:
Thanks, everyone! We will be looking through all of the choices, and figuring out what would look best on her new gown. Lots of work to do!!!  ;D

Lady Kathleen of Olmsted:
A gown for a Queen must have the best. No ordinary trim will do. Same goes for choice of fabrics.
