Hi All,

I am working on a solo dress and the child wants a sequin skirt. What I am trying to figure out as I order- do I want the sequin on jersey or mesh? If I have it on Mesh- I will need another fabric under it right? Anyone have experience with this?

its easier to work with the kind that isn't stretchy. Its on netting or chiffon. And yes you'll need something under it, but I find I need something under most fabrics anyway.

I just noticed I have some on stretch mesh and some on non stretch mesh...not helpful :-/ you might check if its in the description.

I was leaning towards the mesh - based on the design of the skirt. Good to know about the differences on stretch. The jersey one too is much more expensive.

I think how the sequins look is more important than the backing. But if they're equal I'd go with the mesh.
