ADVICE ON HOW TO PROCESS WITH SEQUIN FABRIC.

Before sewing seams , remove sequins on seam allowance up to seam lines. Reinforce sequins near seam line with one or two stitches to prevent their unpicking. We also advice you to set special sewing machine foot to sew the zipper, so that the foot goes along seam allowance where sequins are unpicked. You can also sew these seams by hand, with close back stitches; in this case, you do not need to unpick sequins.

 

1. Sew front/back darts into fabric and lining. Sew back middle seam. Lay lining back part on fabric back part right side together and overstitch along upper edge.

 

2. Lay lining front part on fabric front part wrong sides together and tack along edges. Fold one-piece facing to right side and overstitch armhole edges along. Turn right side out and press it.

 

3. Sew side seams leaving closure slit into left side seam. Press closure allowance to wrong side. Sew the zipper under slit edges with its teeth hidden.

 

4. Press straps along the center, right side out. Fold the stripe out. Fold edges to bend line and press along this line. Topstitch along the edges. Sew straps front edges under front part corners. Try the dress, adjust straps and sew their back ends to back part.

 

5. Sew the hem by hand so that lining hem was 2 cm shorter than fabric one.
