Sewing beads can be a beneficial activity that illuminates your dresses. You can sew beads on almost any parts of a dress to give it both charm and style. A dress can be accented by sewing beads onto the sleeves, waist, chest or along the bottom.

Prepare the things that you will use in sewing the beads. These are scissors, beads that you will use for designing, needle and thread. Make sure that the beads that you will use have holes where you can insert the thread and needle. Choose a thread that has the same color as the dress so that it will not be visible when you sew the beads.

Pick a bead pattern. Choose which pattern you’d like as well as where you’d like it sewn onto your dress. You can choose beads or sequins in shapes like stars, squares, circles or diamonds. Make sure that the beads or sequins have holes in them, so you can sew them onto the dress.

Put your needle through the underside of your dress before you put the beads on. Once the needle is straight up and the thread is all the way up through the dress, put two or three beads down onto the needle to begin your pattern.

Bring the needle back down directly where the third bead ends. This will enable you to tie your threads at the end. When you’re done taking the needle back down, cut off the end of the thread and tie it to the end of the thread you began on the underside of the dress.

Repeat Steps One, Two and Three until you are comfortable with your pattern. Make sure, before you begin adding more beads at a time, that you are comfortable with your pattern. If you go too fast and make a mistake, it will be very difficult to go back and change it.

Test your sewing by pulling the dress up into a sitting position. Tug very lightly on the beads to make sure that they will not slip off. Obviously, you do not want to pull so hard that you unravel your work. You might also want to pull the dress over something such as a pillow to make sure the beads won’t come off when you put it on.

Turning a plain dress into something fashionable does not need magic nor big amount of money. Your creativity will bring new life to your dresses.
