Today my friend and roller derby team mate Cattie has a bash to celebrate her 30th birthday. I joked one training that I should make her a pair of sequin hot pants in our team colours. And since I try to be a person of my word I decided to do just that. I have never sewn anything with sequins before and picked a fairly easy fabric, a knit with the small sequins placed fairly far apart, so I didn't have to remove any sequins when sewing. Normally I think you have to rip off the sequins on the seam allowance since the needle can't work through them, am I right?
It was a fun project and I hope they fit. I'm wearing them in the photo and I'm a bit bigger than her, but they are too snug on me so hopefully they will be okay on her.
