Home Sewing Tips from the 1920s - Trimming Your Dance Frock with Pearly Sequins!

In this tip from Ruth Wyeth Spears and the 1920s, the application of purchased sequin bands adds sparkle to your dance frock or evening gown. Note her recommendation to use a "heavy dull silk crepe" for the best contrast with the shimmering sequin bands.

Such bands of sequins on net can still be found - check out this example in Suhafuha's shop on Etsy. And Creations4Keeps on eBay has sequin bands too, just not on net.
