I sewed together this really shiny liquid silver metallic lame' single piece short sleeved leotard bodysuit! The fabric content of the item is 100% polyester! I made it as part of my clubbing outfit! I also wear it when I go out on the town as it looks like a silver shirt when worn with pants or tights/leggings! This is my 3rd entry on this site, by the way!

Please tell me what you think of this item?

Thanks!

And yes it was pretty tricky to sew together, especially with the elastic as it is 3/4 inch wide and folded in half and I had to tuck the edge of the fabric inside the folded elastic while it was stretched during the sewing on the sewing machine! Pretty tricky and hard if you ask me!

Well done on managing that elastic.  I can't imagine trying to tuck the fabric into folded elastic while stretching and stitching,  but it has made a very good finish so I guess it was worth it.
