Now on to the latest...
My already limited photography skills have met their match in trying to take pictures of a sequined skirt that I just finished in time to wear to a holiday dance last night. So I will try my best to describe this quick but fulfilling project.

I wanted something festive to wear and had this sequined fabric waiting in my resource center for just such an occasion. Mr. Lucky and I do not go to fancy dress balls for charity or corporate galas and I won't be seeing our pictures in the society pages next week. Years ago friends had invited us to their community holiday dance and I saw a woman wearing a black sweater and sequined skirt. I thought that's exactly the look that would fit my sense of style, dressy casual. Finally I had a winter event to bring that memory to life.

So sue me, I took the shortcut and didn't remove the sequins, sewed the darts and seams as usual, pressed with a silk organza press cloth and I'm happy with the result.
I did thread trace my darts and didn't even have to cut them down to get them to press flat.

Sewing metal sequins is hard on needles so two metallica needs bit the dust in service to this holiday outfit.
