Sequin Mini Dress Sewing Tutorial

Over the past weekend I celebrated with some of my closest friends at my bachelorette party in Austin! Each and every one of them worked together to plan the best weekend of all time – games, crafting, a custom cake, a tea party, a cocktail party, and a wig wearing extravaganza! I’ll be sure to share more of that on my Instagram. The only thing I knew before the weekend was that I was going to need a dress for going out on Saturday night, so I decided to whip up this little cutie!

Something short, sweet, sparkly, and white – perfect for a bachelorette! This was the perfect little white dress to wear out dancing, and it is so much more comfortable than you might imagine. The sequins are not itchy like some I’ve worn before, and they provided just the right amount of shimmer.

When I decided to make this dress out of sequins, I was honestly a little nervous because most sequin fabrics have to be hand sewn or have the sequins removed so that the fabric can be sewn with the machine. Not this fabric, though! It’s incredibly easy to work with because a sewing machine can sew right through it without having to remove each sequin at the seam line by hand.

To make this little white dress, you will need a yard of white sequin material, a yard of milliskin tricot fabric to line it, and some white cord for the straps. The construction is a simple 4 pieces of fabric with only 5 seams total – this project could not come together faster! Check out the tutorial on Fabric Wholesale Direct.
