diy tutorial embellished sequined tights inspiration

I didn´t know Refinery29 had also DIY fashion tutorials. Well they do. And the´re not that bad. Quite stylish actually. Like these embellished DIY sequin tights. Project inspired by Fall 2009 collection accessories by Zac Posen, Doo.Ri, Miu Miu.

Materials Needed:
1. A pair of tights
2. Sequins
3. Fabric glue
4. Needle and thread

How to:
1. Place a piece of cardboard (some tights come with it) inside each leg. The cardboard will prevent both sides from sticking together, and will also stretch fabric to work on.
2. Use a super duper strong fabric glue to smother small areas on tights.
3. Cluster sequins on top of glue and spread all over the surface of the tights. Feel free to layer on top of one another for a more three dimensional effect. If you have any sequins or broken mirrored jewelry lying around, use them. Traditional sequins aren't the only option for tights—get creative!
4. Once dry, reinforce sequin clusters with a needle and thread. Use similarly colored thread to blend in with tights and sequins.

  1. Wow. I had the idea to make a top with potato stamps, and triangles, exactly like that xD I'll definitely do it now, it looks even cooler than in my mind

  3. hei! osaatko sanoa, mikä on parasta kangasliimaa? olen etsiskellyt. saako helsingistä esim. hobby pointista tai jostain ompelutarvikeliikkeestä?

  4. CASCO "Maitoliimaa" löytyy melkein kaikista rautakaupoista. Punainen tuubi, jossa valkoisella teksti "Textillim, tekstiili ja maitoliima". Todella monikäyttöistä liimaa, joka käy nahan, villa- ja puuvillakankaiden liimaamiseen. Irtoaa hyvin käsistä ja kankaasta (jos sottaat) + kestää 60-asteen konepesun. Tee aina koepala ja pese se koneessa (jos teet konepestävää vaatetta) ennen kun alat liimata oikeaa työtäsi.

    Askartelukauppojen maito- ja tekstiililiimat ovat olleet minun makuuni aivan liian juoksevia ja sottaisia ja taas kontaktiliimojen hajusta lähtee taju :)
