Garment Construction Tip: Sequined Fabric Deserves Topnotch Seaming
To keep seamlines in sequined fabric smooth, it’s best to remove all the sequins that fall along each seamline. If you leave them in place, you’ll have half or partial sequins in the finished seam. To remove individual sequins without cutting the thread that secures them to the fabric, push the thread out of the way with the tips of the scissors and then carefully cut to the center of the sequin. Sew the seam, then, sewing by hand, fill in any bare spots with sequins snipped off scraps of the fabric.
