I'm making Burda Sequined Tank. The sequins are sewn to sheer mesh fabric, and I'm planning to line the top with Bemberg. The lining would be attached to the sequin hem, sleeves, and neck. The sequined fabric is really heavy, and I'm wondering if I should quilt or tack the sequins to the lining to prevent sagging. Or perhaps use a substantial underling?

Pink rectangular sequins-scroll down and they're on the right.

If your sequin fabric is stretch you might want to consider using a stretch lining instead of bemberg.

I think if you attach it anywhere but the neck, arms and hem it will hang oddly. Were you thinking of the side seams maybe? I can see the seams staying put and the rest of the top pulling downward, at least over time. Also, don't hang this top up. It will need to lie flat for storage, preferably with no folds.

Patty, thanks! After a much closer look at the sequins, it would be difficult to sew underneath them, because they're really small. Luckily, there's some opaque nude swimsuit lining in my stash!

Thanks, Tourist! I was thinking to quilt it to Bemberg a la $hanel, to keep the stretchy sequins and the stable lining together. Your advice is much appreciated, and I will use stretch swimsuit lining. No hangers for storage--not sure if I have room for flat storage, but perhaps I could use tissue paper between folds.
