DIY: Sequin Pocket Tee

I’ve been playing around a lot with sequins, it’s so much fun. A couple days ago I made this embellished sequin pocket tee.

I love how it looks peeking out behind  a shrunken blazer. I always buy my blazers in the little boys section of thrift stores. I have a full section of my closet devoted to such thrifted blazers.

It was really easy. I started with some sequin elastic and  a white pocket tee. I got the 1” wide sequin elastic from my local fabric store. They normally have three sizes: single strand, 1” and 1 1/2”. The 1” was I think  $2 a yard.

I cut the sequin elastic into three strips plus a triangle shape for the bottom tip of the pocket. Sequins fall off a bit when I cut but I kept them around for later.

I hand stitched the sequin strips on, starting with the bottom tip. If there were a few sequins that had fallen off and it looked like there was a little empty spot, I simply strung a couple onto my string while I was sewing it on.
I love the festive touch it gives! Stay tuned, more sequin embellishment projects coming up…
