Sewing With Sequins

It’s time for a bit of Sparkle and Glamour on the run up to Christmas. I’ve been busy making my Christmas day outfit and wanted to show you that you really don’t need to be scared of working with “tricky” fabrics like sequins and velvet.

I have used our ‘everyday’ Regan Sweatshirt pattern but in a fabulous fabric combo. I think this is spot-on for the perfect Christmas Day top. Comfortable and relaxed but with a bit of sparkle. It would look great paired with the Ariel Cargo pants for some informal glamour. Or maybe even a pair of soft wool Portia trousers. Obviously with comfy socks and slippers too!

Why don’t you try making a simple pattern but with some glamorous fabrics to see you through the Christmas season. We have the whole project plus tutorials on how to work with sequins and velvet in the Technical Library section of our online Subscription Club; The Sewing Studio.
