inspiration: J.Crew sequin rows silk tee in 2 colors $118
project time: 45 mins. per top
skill level: a confident beginner
project budget: $6-7 per top
3/4 yard of silk/satin fabric (hobby lobby $2.99 per yard)
2 spools of sequin trim for the brown top (1.99 each)
1 spool of sequin trim for the cream top (4.99)
(you can’t even tell i photoshopped this photo huh? man, i impress myself with my mad photoshop skills!)
1. cut the fabric. i didn’t use a pattern, i just traced it while looking at my inspiration.
*you’ll need to keep in mind that the fabric doesn’t stretch. at all. so make sure it’s wide enough.
4. use fray check on the seam of the sleeves. when it’s dry, cut a tiny bit of the fabric around the whole sleeves so it gives a clean, finished edge.
5. put liquid stitch on the shirt horizontally. then put the sequin trim on top of it and press. cut off the excess trim.
6. keep continuing. for the cream top i used 6 rows of sequins and for the brown, 8 rows of sequin trim.
viola! and you’re done my dear!
i saved over $110!
