    Three questions: 1) Is this dress actually studded? 2) Did you do the studding yourself? and 3) If so, how did you do that? And if not, any ideas on how one would go about it? I saw an amazing shirt in Paris Vogue with studding similar what (it looks like) is on this dress, and I want to make my own version. Thanks!

      no i did not do the studding myself, the fabirc came like that as part of the Cabaret line at Fabricville. They are like little globs of metallic glue, very hard to iron!
      If i were to go about it i would look at a craft store like Michaels for some kind of bead/embellishment that you could hot-glue onto your garment! Try googling around, hope I helped :)

      Thank you! I used simplicity 2147, it was super easy. I added a belt because the final product is a bit tent-like especially if you are tiny like me and using a womens pattern!
