Yup, Spotlight usually has gld satin binding - if not, have you ever tried making your own? I tried recently, and it was pretty much the most satisfying thing ever lol! It's super easy, and looks great. There are lots of tutorials online, I can't find the one I used unfortunately; just make sure you cut on a 45 degree angle, and start with a big enough piece of fabric!

Static's right.
best bet is Spotlight.
i've got gold bias binding from there before. (:

making your own is more trouble than it's worth tbh.

Hehe, I only had to make a couple of metres - it was for edging a corset. I daresay doing a whole costume's worth would be a pain in the ass. XP

When do you need it for? I might be able to get you some coz I know my spotlight has the nice satiny ones, having just bought some for Rosa, but I'm not sure when I can get out to spotlight is the only thing...
