I am new to this forum business and not sure how it works so please forgive any gaffes.
I recently bought some material and I don’t know what it’s called. My guess would be “spangled”. The backing is a light mesh and it is covered all over with shiny black disks attached by one stitch on the edge. It looks very glamorous and showy, but I’m not sure how to sew it. I have sewn with sequinned material before, just sewing through the plastic sequins, but these disks are bigger…maybe about a half inch in diameter. Do I need to sew it by hand? Have any of you any experience or tips on how to handle this kind of material? It would be much appreciated.
I am using a very simple pattern with no darts, which I think is necessary… McCall’s 7995, view B. I am using black velvet for the straps. What should I do about the hem?
