✂-Designer's Tip of the Day- Embellished Fabrics

Materials such as beaded, sequined, and embroidered fabrics and cracked ice are among the most glamorous fabrics available. They can be used for complete garments or accent trims.
Sequins and beads are frequently applied with chanstitching which, when inadvertently pulled from one end, will unravel a large section.
Take care when using such fabrics, however, they make a great dress for a night at the Oscar's!!
