    Thanks for that!
    I have never though of making my own costume, but I think I might actually give it a try ^_^

    Thanks for that miss shimmy!!! I just have bought some coins and was wandering how to destroy some of my lingerie and transform it into a costume. As soon as I have some results Iíll share them with you.

    My fingers ache and eyes are watering from so much sewing at night. But if I manage to get it right it will be done by Sunday I guess. And along with the bra I also made a belt to fit.
    Iíll show the results afterwards

    Default ooh!!

    ooh lylyth,can't wait to see!!

    I hear if you put a tenny blob of glue on the back of your sewing,it strengthens the sewing and stops beads/coins being shimmied off so much!

    Another way to strengthen the thread you use to sew on coins is to run each thread through beeswax, then run an iron over the thread so the wax soaks in. Sounds like a lot of hassle, I know, but if you a bunch of threads all at once, it is not so bad, and it makes quite a difference on thread strength. Also keeps thread from tangling so bad.

    Default one more tip...

    I made about 5 coin bras now...so i now what mistakes you can make...if you use strechy material, watch out if you cover the cupssometimes they go back...annoying!
    And i got about an E cup, so i make my neck straps always some more wide...or else my neck hurts, and i never change the back straps for ribbons, i first cover them with strech jeans, and then with velvet...

    Post But where to buy coins?

    But where do you buy coins, can anyone tell me?

    All I find in stores is those thin tinkly aluminum ones, so I'm afraid to order coins online. Does anyone know where to get those heavier ones that are on heavy hip scarves and make such a wonderful sound? Thanks ahead.
