    Third tme lucky vinia as it’s a knockout dress. I love this type of fabric as well as the fish scale sequin. I broke loads of needles on the fish scale fabric but the end result is so worth it. I hope your friend was going somewhere special in this dress as she looked fabulous x

      I got a tip after i made three dresses out of the fishscale fabric. I was told to pull the sequins of in the seam lines or else use a very fine needle. .the heavy sequin fabric’s like wearing chainmail lol. Did you line the dress?? I find this helps vinia x
