Long I know sorry.

I'm working on a costume for Halloween Columbia for ROPS.  I had a good idea to glue sequins onto a tube top as I didn't have the proper corset.  So I found a tube top bright pink, and got some sequins, and started gluing using Alieen's Fabric Fusion.  I was making the sequins VERY dense as I didn't want any of the pink tube top to show through.  I started last night.  Today when I looked at my progress I realized that where I've glued the sequins the fabric now no longer stretches ~sigh~  I need the stretch...lol.  I'm not putting sequins on the back as I will be wearing a jacket so I am wondering if I will still be able to get the tube top on, and over the girls.  If it doesn't stretch what could I do to alter the back?  Would cutting up the back & adding sewing elastic work?  I don't want to start over.

Then there is the hat.  I got a black hat at Value Village in their costume section, but it is all black.  I need it gold, and very sparkly VERY sparkly.  My plan is to spray paint it gold, then use modge podge, and put gold glitter on the hat.  I really want it to sparkle do you think that will work?  Also to seal the hat should I use a spray sealant or do a second later of modge podge to seal the glitter on.

I have shorts that I will add ribbon too.  I'm going to glue the ribbon on hopefully that will work.

The jacket.  Yikes.  I wanted something already sequinned, but so far haven't found on at the Thrift Store though I will keep looking.  I do have a Plan B, but it is big on me & black.  So could I spray paint the jacket gold?  Has anyone done that?

I just did my first pair of glitter shoes and I would say put two or three coats on the hat- then LIGHTLY spray a coat of clear spray paint in a gloss finish.

I would go ahead for the jacket do something other than sequins- spray paint, fabric paint, or I think gold fabric glitter would work nicely! If you have time to sew a jacket similar to what she has, just cover it in gold glitter. I remember seeing something at Micheal's about fabric specific glitter or glue?

Thanks for replying.  The hat ended up fantastic.  I do need to spray it with a sealer still as I think I will use it next year.  I ended up finding a sequin top that worked as a jacket at a Second Hand Shop so that worked Cheesy
