© 2011 Runway Sewing. All Rights Reserved.

Make your Holiday Sparkle this year with a sequin dress. Can't find the right fit or color? Not in your budget? Make it yourself ! Show everyone how fabulous you are!





Here is another Pattern Free Runway Sewing project you'll love! This dress was made with mesh sequin fabric.




Material:

1.) 2 yards of fabric
2.) Trim (optional if self fabric is sheer) 2 yards of lining fabric or wear a cami slip.


Duration: Approximately 4+ hours
Sewing Level: Beginner to Intermediate


1. Cut fabric (see dimension above) and layer on top of each other for front and back with grain line in same direction. Make sure to note the front and back (red) neck lines are cut different.
2. Mark in chalk (see blue line above). you will need to add 1/4" seam allowance.
3. Finish the neck line, armhole and bottom hem by turning over and single needle stitch.
4. OPTIONAL: If fabric is sheer, attach the lining at neck and armhole openings. The lining should be cut -1/4" all around. The bottom hem should be finished loose. OR if you prefer,  wear a separate camisole slip that you already have in your closet!

HEMLINE: Note, the length can be longer than above dimension. The length above hits very short on the body. See Picture on mannequin. If you want the dress length to be longer just cut longer as desired.

Happy Sewing in the New Year Everyone!
