Hi, just thought i'd try posting here to see if anybody can help me locate a fabric thats similar to the image i uploaded. I want it to make a waistcoat like the 1 in the image but cant seem to find the fabric design anywhere. Thanks in advance for any help/advice given :)

RE: Looking for a fabric

Here's similar in black and gold (I searched on "fleur de lis brocade fabric")
I suggest you don't try too hard to find that exact fabric--it was probably manufactured specifically for that suit maker. It can be an exercise in frustration to try to find the exact same fabric as any ready-to-wear item.

And decide as well: do you need the fleur de lis, or to you need the black-and-purple brocade?

These guys have nice brocades.

and gold-and-black

This isn't the same but might have a similar effect
