Okay, third mockup with an angled flap! I spent some time drawing out the spangle pattern for the waistcoat, although I still have to do the facing (which folds over). I ordered sequins like 2 years ago from MJ Trim in oyster white and matte black — and looking at them today, I realized — duh, these are supposed to look like metal! Matte black totally doesn’t work. Now I checked their site and it doesn’t look like they have the color I need in the size I originally ordered (8mm), so I may need to order more in 6mm. Luckily, they’re not too expensive!
