A sewing update

Yes, I've finished the edging. Well, at least the basic edging, on the bra & belt. There's still the edging to do on the dress, and I'm slightly more concerned about that one, because it needs to be fairly elastic, which I'm pretty sure is feasible, with the technique I'm using. But hooray and yay, the bra & belt edging are done.

Now I'm adding the big sequin dangles to the belt lower edge (in lieu of fringing- it's my attempt to be baladi). I will also be adding the big sequin dangles to the side splits of the dress, and possibly to the neck edge (I'll see how I feel about it nearer the time).



I also added a few beads to the neck strap decoration.



Update:
I finished adding the big sequins to the hip belt.



And up close:



I love how the flash has pulled out the colours in the hologram sequins!

Beautiful!! Since this post isn't locked down to your friend's list (not seeing the little lock dohkie on it) do you mind if I send a link to it to one of my gals? She's trying to design and new bra/belt and I wanted her to see the fabric and beading on this one because I think its close to what she had in mind as a general base for the rest of the desgin.

Link away to your heart's content, if you think it will help. You can give her the tag link, so that she can see all the posts for this project:

Awww, shucks, thanks everybody! I'm pleased with how it's coming along, and I just hope I don't mess it up in the later stages.

Love it! I have a fetish for huge sequins :))) What is the diameter?

Not that big- only 24mm.

Love it! I'm not usually a fan of holographic sequins, but they work really well with the simplicity of the belt.

Well, the plan is to bling the belt up, so it may yet disappoint you! I am a magpie and love how you get much more shine for your buck with hologram sequins. And they go with the AB crystals really well.
