As you can see from the back, the sequins are sewn on. At the selvedge edge, there is a strip of unadorned jersey that might come in handy somehow. I will pick out sequins along the stitching line before sewing with the machine. Then I will hand-sew sequins to fill in where it looks naked. It should look seamless when I am finished. I will finish the edges the same way.
I am not using a pattern. I'll find a cheap knit in my stash to develop a muslin and fit that right on her. I'll take apart the muslin and use it as a pattern. Actually, I think it will be a 2-piece affair; a tank top and a slim mini-skirt. I think that will just be easier to move around and sit in. And let's just admit it, these are wardrobe building pieces. You know you want one!
Another thing that crossed my mind is how nice it would be to have a black cardigan with this. I have the perfect fabric for it, too. I was thinking something like this:
You don't think I am ambitious, do you? Yeah, well, I can always mail it to her if I don't finish. But a girl can try, right?
On a completely unrelated note, there are websites where you can load or link a photo and grab a color palette. We were discussing wardrobe color selection based eye color; perhaps a no-brainer, but I am choosing paint color for a room. It made me think how useful this is for interior decorating!
oops, sorry for the big eyeball.
