CREAM N SILVER/DULL GOLD SEQUINED VEST TOP


 

Hi Huns...

So that's where they keep the sparkle...Phase from carry Bradshaw in sex in the city...

Sparkle...Sparkle...This is remnants from a dress cut in 2017 and has yet to make its way to the sewing machine...Ooo darling...how rude...1st time working on sequins...Had a sweat on...As you do...


Tip: Shave/Remove or clip as much of sequin away from the edges...Not too much...but just enough for you to sew your stitch line, without stopping and starting...Becoz the needle will get snagged in with the sequins and essentially pull your fabric...And you don't want that...

Cardi...I'm a sucker for cardigans...I swear I'm like a lil granny...But hey, we gotta give props to Cardi's as there are...some really kool ones out there...Well, i guess old habits die hard...

Snow, rain, sun come shine...I'm wearing one...I blame my mum...in a good way of course...

When i was younger every time i stepped out that front door...


I would hear...Have you got a cardi under that..coz its cold out there and you don't wanna catch cold ...I mean, at my age...She still try to say that to me now...Mum's aye!...Gotta love em xx
