Hi everyone!
I would normally post this in the General Cosplay boards, but I'll probably get the answer I need here faster..

Anyways, I'm looking to improve upon and finish my Lavender Lightgown from Star Wars Episode III. One of the things I need to get it as accurate as possible is a trim that could resemble a faggotting stitch. (like this http://www.countrybumpkin.com.au/shop/images/Style-113.jpg ) I would try the actual stitch, but I know I would just mess it up. So what I'm hoping is to find this trim in Canada. I've looked in both Fabricland and Walmart, neither with any success. Does anyone know of a place that would sell this type of trim?

Thanks in advance!!

I think my mom bought something very similar to that today actually O_O

We picked it up at fabricland in mississauga (hurontario/dundas)

I can take a pic of it tomorrow if you'd like. (Hopefully my memory is correct that its similar :x )

If your ever in the Toronto (Downtown Area) there is an amazing ribbon store called Mokuba on queen street. It is Japanese inspired I believe (after the japanese ribbon art stuff... you'll see it in the store if you go) and they have everything there... lol... some of the ribbons are amazing though expensive.. it ranges from $0.90 per meter all the way up to over $100 for the most expensive ones... you can probably find what you need there.... here is a link to it's address

I'm also going to suggest the Fashion district of Queen Street.
And be sure to plan a whole day for it! There are so many stores and so much neat stuff to look at *_*

So a visit to either a larger Fabricland or Queen Street seems to be in order... Hopefully I'll be down in Toronto some time in July then. I'm more in the Ottawa area. :P

Thanks for the help so far! :D
