Subject: I like to bag line them with organza or light satin or lining material (depending on the color). Keeps the hem clean and tidy, and gives the potentially droopy sequins a bit of body.

In reply to: Any ideas? 's message, "What do you ladies think about the best way to finish the bottom edge of a gathered sequin fabric skirt? I don't really want to bind it with a satin band. Could I leave the cut edge and not finish it? It's sequins on mesh. Line it with lightweight fabric and let that seam be the hem? Serge it? Fold under a hem and hand stitch? It's dd's dress so I can please myself." on Wednesday, May 01, 06:18:04pm

Binding works really well, gives a neat finish and doesn't scratch legs (NT).Friday, May 03, 12:08:03am

    So do you line your ruffle first or just bind a single layer? Or I suppose it depends on the sturdiness of the sequin fabric? (NT)OPFriday, May 03, 09:02:31am
