My daughter wearing the finished article. Not a very good picture I am afraid.  This is a pattern from an old book - maybe around the 1940s - called Practical Knitting Illustrated by Margaret Murray and Jane Koster. 

This is a detail of the fabric.  It is all Solomon's Knot work and since I was using a reel of floss intended for use in an overlocker I couldn't slide all the sequins on to the thread beforehand as they would have worn it all away.  Instead I used a needle threader to slip them onto the loop whenever I wanted to put one in.  The original pattern does not have the sequins.

Here is a picture of the original


And this is the original pattern
