Careful  not to use that fabric right against the armpit/underarm if making a sleeveless shirt. I made a sleeveless mod-dress with it and it rubbed my underarms raw by the end of the night. If you do, (I was told later) you should pull some of the sequins off with a twizzers on the underarm section.
BEASTLY to sew, unless you use some type of silicone lubricant on the needle and a little on the thread. I've heard people use astroglide, etc with some success.
I use the brand called Sewer's Aid. Works like a charm and only costs around $4.00 at the local fabric store. Without it the glue holding the sequins on will gum up your needle terribly and break your thread. Don't even waste your time trying the cleaning of the needle with alcohol trick. I tried that first and I was cleaning the needle every 10 seconds, very frustrating!
Good luck, if you have the patience to sew that type of material it makes some amazing outfits.  Love the cowl neck shirt suggested by the previous poster!!!

There's this free top pattern as well (along the same lines as FlooZySue posted):


I really need to add that top to my favorites list so I don't have to search through the "Free Patterns for Clothing" thread looking for it.  I don't think I'd ever make it for myself, but I've suggested it more than once.


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

Yeah: How about a Newsboy Cap?


This one is an easy sew pattern. I've made several of them. The most difficult part is attaching the brim.

I've made one out of a sequin fabric. The Sequins were a bit tough. But, removing them from the seam lines made it a bit easier.

How about a skirt?

My husband's work used to have a crazy shorts contest at the company picnic. I made him some purple shorts out of the fabric and a wifebeater to match made out of shiny rainbow colored  foil fabric. He won the contest and caused a minor traffic accident on the way home. Someone at the stoplight was too busy staring at him and they ran their brand new car into the back of a cargo trailer. Smiley
