When should one make an impractical, shiny, sparkly piece of garment? The silly season, of course!
I made a skirt out of sequined fabric. Not the heat-bonded type, but the individually stitched on type. Which, as I find out, is my absolutely least favourite fabric to sew! I tried removing the sequins at the seam line before I sew, but ended up having a visible gap. I stitch any closer, the sequins get caught in the machine needles, and I broke 2 needles. In the end I just hand-stitched it.
