Hmm…this was a pretty bad idea. I bought this great all over sequin fabric, not cheap and very stretchy thinking i could make an awesome dress. KateXXX did warn me when i asked if this would be easy, turns out no!! I never want to see a sequin again. To sew the seams i had to cut off and unpick about a million sequins that are now turning up all over the house no matter how much i vacuum! No hems i just dont have the patience and it would end up too short anyway (Its just 2 rectangles shaped to body)
Well in theory the dress is kinda cool for the Christmas period but i don’t think it suits me at all and I’m not sure i’d be brave enough to wear it anyway. And wow, does it itch! hehe
