Hoping for some advice on adding Swarovski crystals to my dress.
The bodice of the dress has a very thin, sheer layer of material that the current crystals are sewn onto. I want to add hundreds of crystals so I was thinking gluing them on using the hot fix applicator would be my best bet as opposed to sewing them on, just figured it would be less time consuming than sewing them on, the thing is though, I can’t get under to separate the two layers so I’m guessing using the glue is going to stick the sheer layer to the fabric of the bodice. Does anyone know if that’s going to cause me any problems?
Also colour wise, I was originally thinking of adding the AB coloured crystal but now I’m wondering if that will be too costume-y and if I should stick with the silver? All the crystals currently on the dress are plain white/silver.
Lastly, would i be able to get it pressed after the crystals are glued on or will they come off? It’s very flat and i’m thinking they may be ablet to puff it out more?
Would love to hear experiences from any other bees who have added crystals to their dresses, or added them to anything really!
