Description

i came into possession of a one and bit meter piece of sequined net for a ridiculously good price, so i decided to stretch the fabric to it’s full potential. I managed to wing a straight shift dress with side darts at the bust to improve the fit. amazingly, i had enough and with some careful cutting i managed to use the scalloped embroidered edge of the fabric as the hemline and the sleeve. the dress pulls over the head, as it has no zipper, and i used satin bias binding to finish the neckline. it’s pretty slick!

Material Notes

the sequin stuff isn’t that hard to work with, really. i managed to avoid cutting through sequins at the side seams as best as i could, but where i couldn’t avoid it i just picked off the sequins with a stitch ripper so that i could sew the seam. after i constructed the dress i sewed some sequins on that met the seam exactly. the fabric and the design are a perfect pair!

    I love it! I’m a suck for a scalloped edge and this is totally hot as a minidress.
