Hello all! This isn't a dance related question but I thought some of you seamstesses might know. My prom dress this year is chiffion and I was wanting to bling it up a little because it is a wee bit plain. I was going to use my hot fix tool, as it is my bedazzling bff, but I am worried if it will burn the chiffion...Has anyone ever tried this? I thought about just buying a little peice of chiffion and trying it out to see if it would hurt the fabric or not...
Thanks so much!
A.G.

good idea to try on a scrap piece of fabric first, but you could always just glue them on also. E6000 adhesive is the best to use.

I have used hotfix crystals on Chiffon once BUT! I made sure that if I was using a 20ss crystal i used a 16ss tip- 40 ss crystal- 34 ss tip--always use a smaller tip so that the tool does not hit your fabric(it will melt instantly) it is a good idea to test anyway just to make sure that YOUR fabric does not melt- if there is a small piece inside the zipper that might be your best bet

use gem-tac. seriously get a 'glue syringe'... lovetocrystal.com
i've had fabric melt/discriminate with a cool iron.

my daughter's dress is silk organza and velvet i just use gem tac.

it holds great!

do NOT use E6000 on delicate fabrics, it can melt them too!

Best to use the gem tac. It really is the best.
