Since I saw this sequin fabric I fell in love with it … I’ve never seen a sequined fabric like this. It’s a two faced colored sequin fabric with colored horizontal sequin (green, fucsia, blue, purple) in one face and the other face is matte black.
I couldn’t resist making a skirt from scratch with this cool fabric in which you can draw with your finger on the sequins… In this tutorial I will show you step by step how easy it is to make a skirt like this.
- Sequins fabric (it’s stretch fabric) from “Ribes & Casals”
- A skirt to use as a template or pattern. (If you don’t have, you can use this PATTERN)
- Sewing machine
- Scissors and pins
1. Place the skirt as straight as possible and cut around it with 1-2 cm margin on the sides and top and 4cm margin at the bottom.
2. Cut two equal pieces. (They are the same because the fabric is knit and it can stretch)
3. Face the pieces. Leaving the sequins on the inside.
4. Sew the sides of the skirt with 1-2 cm margin depending on what you previously cutted.
5. Tour and try on the skirt to make sure that it looks good, if not but adjust it.
6. Fold the lower part of the skirt up 4cm. Fix with pins.
7. Sew by hand with loose stitches.
9. Place edge to edge the strip (waistband) you cut in the waist. All set with pins and sew with a margin of 1 cm.
10. Fold the waistband upwards and then inwards securing it with pins. Sew it with the sewing machine right in the union. The waistband not only polish the top of the skirt, also serves as a protection so that the sequins do not scratches your skin.
Here is the fabric in action! As you see, you can change the black to multicolor skirt just passing your hand over the sequins. Such is fantastic sequined skirt will look great with a jean shirt for a more casual look or with a top or a blazer for a more glamour look.
I hope you liked this fabric and this tutorial! Until the next post DIY’er! 😉
