Sequins and lace and pearls, oh my!

I had a circus performance (cerceau/hoop) on New Year’s Eve which called for some extra sparkle on my costume. It stared out at a plain nude slip and a full-length vintage layered fabric crinoline. I shortened the skirt by about two-thirds and attached it to the slip. I gathered some of the left over material and used it as trim to line the top of the bodice. I added lace (which I dyed with tea to match older lace on the skirt) behind the spaghetti straps, and pearls on top of them. I then added sequins along the seams of the cups and front seams of the bodice. I was really happy with it in the end, but I am still discovering random sequins all over the house!
