    well what do you consider expensive?  you may want to try ebay.  Try fabric.com or hancockfabrics.com  they may have something.

    If you live in the Middle Atlantic region of the US, consider stopping in to the G Street Fabric stores in the area around DC.  They have beautiful laces and specialty fabrics as well as every other type of fabric immaginable.  If a trip there is out of the question, contact them via their web site http://www.gstreetfabrics.com.  If you send them a scrap they will match it or contrast it to go with your outfit, whichever you desire. 

    They are truly a wonder in todays world.  Everyone who works there is knowledgable about fabrics and the fiber arts!

    If you're using silk charmeuse, a $20/yd. fabric then you'd want to keep on & use the quality lace e.g. French Chantilly lace or Alencon lace.  http://www.supremefabrics.com  If the "silk" is indeed a polyester look-a-like (and they do look good!) you might try http://www.maryjosclothshop.com (in Gastonia, N.C.)  I found some very nice lace for a bride that didn't want the expensive stuff.
