I think it's a really lovely weave. It's 1/2" wide.

Vintage Metallic Trim
A while back, I posted about an incredibly lovely vintage silk jacket.
One of its many gorgeous features is the wonderful metallic braid trim. Yesterday at an estate sale, I found a length of the same kind of metallic braid. I am so excited to have some of my own! There is a little over 5 feet of it.
The sale was a treasure trove of antique everything. I heard one shopper say that because there were so many eras represented that it was more like a museum than a sale. So true! The house is only a block away from my house. I've walked past it a gazillion times in the 20+ years I've lived here and never imagined what was hidden inside.
