Every thrift store in the world has an 80's sequined black dress.
You might be able to take it apart and use the fabric. It would save you a great deal of money.

I second (third, fourth?) the idea of using pre-sequined fabric and putting coloured sequins over it.

I've sewn a bag and put huge amount of sequins on and it took me hours, and it was nowhere near the amount of sequins that are on this dress. It would take years. haha

i'm totally into this. does anyone have a pattern for this style of dress though?

i was shopping the other day and walked past the express.
i went in since they were having this big sale and i saw a sequined dress like this.

they have it in gold and black and another color.  (not that that really matters, but...)

it's about the same length, sleeves looked pretty similar.
i didn't look at the price.  i'm sure it's a pretty penny, but nowhere near what the proenza dress would be.  if you were having a really hard time with the sewing the dress part and just wanted to do the colored/extra sequins part, it'd be a great jumping off point.

anyway, i glanced on their website, but didn't see the exact one.
(plus i don't know how to link to the exact image on their fancy animated site.)

so, yeah.
don't know if it helps.
but i thought i'd mention it.

Have you guys checked out ebay?  They have some great vintage patterns and most of them are from the 60's which will match the silhouette of this garment.  Plus depending on the pattern, you can get it dirt cheap.

Here are some suggestions:

Does anyone here have any ideas on how to sew/glue sequins on a hello kitty face???. I started one but its taking me a day and a half to finish it and I am sewing each individual sequin. Thanks. AL. Kiss
