I got a whole roll of purple sequin fabric, about 3mm sequins glued on mesh fabric. Very beautiful fabric and I can imagine it being very useful for my two girls. But what can I sew using this large amount of fabric? The girls are 4.5 yo and 10 month old and they don't have any dancing classes or any activities related to dancing. What else can I use it for?

Make a super-awesome-sparkly-princess play tent! You could make a teepee style tent or a pup tent. And you'll probably use only a third of your fabric if it's a full bolt.

I suggest a non-clothing option because if the sequins are only glued down and not stitched, repeated wearing/washing will eventually lead to lost sequins.

I think a fairy or princess dress would be fun for the 4 year old! Tulle and sequins go together nicely for fantasy dresses!  She will probably outgrow the dress just as the sequins start falling off...I bet it is lovely fabric!

I bought this fabric like 2 years ago, wanting to make a purse, but it might be to delicate for a purse.
It's satin... and about 2 yards. Today I was playing with my fabircs, seing what I can match and I found this pink chiffon, which might look good underneath it, so I was thinking maybe a dress.
But I'm a curvy girl, so I dunno if a dress would be the best, maybe a blouse or something, but I have no idea.

Any input would be appreciated  Cheesy

Ooooooh, does it have any stretch? How much flex does it have on the bias? I saw it and immediately thought of the Twister. There's a version as a top with a slightly different draft, as well.

Gosh, that fabric is so pretty! I keep scrolling down to look at it Tongue

Ok, another thought is a pretty feminine blouse, perhaps with sheer sleeves, or some other detail that uses that lovely chiffon. Maybe a pattern like BurdaStyle's Ute.

And one more idea. A wrap-tulip skirt, kinda like this. Vogue has a similar pattern.

 Definitely a blouse!  Maybe one with a butterfly sleeve?

Thank you!
I know right! I bought it without thinking twice, and now I am thinking twice to make sure I use it for the perfect project, because if I'd ruin it, I'd be very sad. LOL
That skirt is very pretty, I wonder if I could pull it off.

The fabric has no stretch to it, I dunno about grain, but it is very tight webbed. (is that putting it correct?)

I really like the butterfly sleeve idea. Like this
Or maybe a one shoulder fitted shirt, with butterly sleeve or just fabric hanging there.
But that means I'd have to make/modify a DDD bra to wear it with.

   You are a DDD?Huh You could always make a peasant blouse, with that sleeve. The chiffon would be perfect under it, as shown. 
   I think you need to test your patterns out in sheeting for fit, or even a lining fabric. Experiment with cutting things on the bias. A blouse with a front yoke seam could work. Just add plenty of fabric to the length of the
bustline area. If you need to stretch out yardage, consider making the upper back a sheer with the pink. Cut the back above the bra line; you can even do a flounced neckline in the chiffon.

What beautiful fabric!  I certainly would not want to screw it up either!  And, you would want to make something you love to wear a lot for a long time!

I have been seeing a lot of halter style tops with sheers used as a shrug, tied in the back...I definitely would make a blouse...it would feel lovely next to your skin...

Thanks for moving my topic into this ongoing thread, I have to make a bookmark folder for crafter.  Cheesy

Yes, I'm a DDD.  Sad I hope if I shed some weight, one or two D's will vanish too. LOL

Okay, so either something constructed and well fitted, or something loose and flowy.
