OMG, you sewed on those sequins by hand? Awesome!! What a nice friend you are to make this and good luck to your friend in the competition. Great looking bikini!

Gosh no! I did not sew the sequins on by hand! This is a sequined fabric.

Very flattering lines on this suit...it looks great. Any good tips for sewing sequined fabric?

To sew the sequin fabric, I used my Pfaff zig zag. I didn't adjust anything - just push the zig zag button. My Janome coverstitch seems like it will sew through anything. Cutting the pieces out makes a huge mess - sequins everywhere! But I love the look. The sequin fabric is uncomfortable against your skin, so a lining is very important.

How glamorous with the sequins, and what a task attaching them!
