Sequin-selfmade

I really very badly wanted a sequin-leggins for so long, but in this darn village nobody ever seemed to feel the same, not even one of them fancy H&Ms or Zara-stores or whichever else… so I had to end this desaster, ordered two sequin fabrics online and started sewing me a blue leggins first. The trouble was that even though it said “stretchy jersey” on the fabric description, when I unpacked it I had to realize it was maybe a jersey, but not at all stretchy. I made the leggins nonetheless but they’re not really as comfty as I’d have wanted em to be, so I decided to use the second sequin fabric not for the intended second pair of leggins, but for a freestyle-sequin dress.
Anyway, I was wearing the sequin leggins at college today; regardless of how uncomfortable they felt. But I enjoyed people staring at me in the weirdest way because of my pants. They don’t look THAT weird, do they?

Because of my love for sequin fabrics, I sat down yesterday and stitched the two pieces of silver sequin to an old black summerdress and found out it looked actually pretty nice for some kinda groovy party. I can imagine a hundred things to add as accesories to this funky dress. I really kinda like it.

AND a while ago I already had a sewing-session that found its conclusion in a fun black ruffle-dress with a skirt that I made out of some kinda lining-fabric – also with a few cute sequins sewed on it. That dress is definitely one of my favourite recent selfmades:

    :) I totally agree with you. I dare say sequins are the new leather!

    Gorg leggings and colour I have to say, and not at all weird.
