wow, was that your first time sewing on sequins?
i have to tell you, i've been sewing for quite awhile
and have no real understanding exactly HOW you
sew on sequins!  that looks great and really dresses up
the already cute cotton fabric-
it's one of those skirts that you can now wear day or evening
b/c of the sequins.  great job!  Smiley

yeah, it's my first sequen sewing adventure. i have a skirt quite similar to the one i made, so i just looked to it to see how the sequens should be sewn. i drew a little diagram to show you how i did it. hope this helps!
68  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / first post ever! [skirt with sequins] on: August 18, 2005 06:34:16 PM
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
