Step Four: Adding sequins and other stones
Sequins take a long time to sew, but using a very strong glue instead will save you a lot of time. There is no limit on how much bling you want to add to the costume. I have made a simple flower with flat back pearls and sequins. Glue the pearl first and arrange the sequins around it. I am using 8mm flat back pearls and 5mm sequins.
Step Five: Adding the braid
The braid needs to be sewn by hand onto the first layer of fabric. Start next to the zipper at the waist and continue around covering the seam waist.
I hope you enjoyed these tips and techniques for adding bling with fabric stencils, sew-on jewels and sequins.
