Description

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. Full details can be found on my blog here http://chainstitcher.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/sequin-and-red-velvet-christmas-party.html

    It takes a long time to become an expert fiona. Not bad work I’ve seen some of your projects. But I’ve been designing, since the 80s when I went to fashion college. You would be better off going on a proper fashion course. The results you would get would be far more pleasing to you. I tailor clothes and if you want to learn that, that is the top end of the clothing market. Do feel free to email me if you wish to. Happy sewing to you.
