so, i've been lurking on here for a little while, and i finnally decided to join.
i made this skirt after being inspired by this post with tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44683.0
i got the fabric on sale for $3 a yard at jo-anns and bought a 59 cent bag of like 800 gold sequens. the skirt took like 2 hours to make, but sewing on the sequens individually by hand took atleast 4-5 hours.
the fabric has a little bit of shimmer to it on parts of the pattern.
a couple of my friends spent like $70 for a solid colored skirt similar to this, which is just crazy. making your own is so much cheaper, and more fun!
btw, the sequens are only on the front half, and i used about 230 of them
