Inspired by a post from the Megan Neilsen Design Diary blog, I saw some sequined sweater knit next to the cutting table at the fabric store and grabbed it on impulse to try this pattern out as a sweater.
I had never sewn a sweater knit before. I was expecting it to be harder to cut and sew on a machine. My rotary cutter didn't like the sequins but I switched to scissors and had no problems. My machine was able to handle the fabric without any problems with a zig zag stitch and no walking foot (as I don't have one). The only down side is that there are tiny sequins all over my dining room table FOREVER.
Overall, I'm really happy with this sweater. It satisfies my desire for over the top tackiness that I am drawn to - in this case sequins for everyday wear.
My partner is graciously taking photos for me for this blog but is learning in the process so I have decided to add out-takes because there are many. Here's the first one:
