This is a special Christmas party version of By Hand London’s Kim Dress which I chose to make out of sequins and silk velvet. It was quite a challenge as I’d never worked with either of these tricky fabrics before but luckily the pattern itself is quite a simple sew and it turned out well in the end! I backed the sequins with silk organza to give the bodice some structure and lined it with silk habotai.
