Brooklyn, New Yo...
I had a wedding to go to, old friends, I had to make something special. This 80s-inspired number was my first time working with sequins! My apartment is still sparkling 6 weeks later!
I made a liner, same pattern sans hem, out of black cotton jersey for comfort, warmth, and in case it was a little see-through. All those pleats gave it a little more oomph.
If you decide to work with sequins, edge stitch around them before you hem.
The bottom hem on a shortened Marie leaves out that extra piece, and has to be hand-stitched due to the drooping tulip angle.
Zebra sequin, lined with cotton jersey.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
