One word: Fray-Check!
A high school dance team booster parent recently revealed that she was having issues with the sequined fabric on her team's costumes. She noted that some trailing plastic threads were exposed and looked as if they may unravel, causing the costume to lose its sequins. To fix the problem, this resourceful mom mentioned that she knotted the loose threads and tied them off.If you want to keep your costumes in good repair and prevent potential costume chaos, you NEED to be this conscientious when checking for loose and trailing threads!
There is, however, one additional step that I suggest in order to further prevent threads from coming undone. To protect your costume, use a drop of “Dritz Fray-Check” on the knot and give it adequate time to dry. This quick-fix liquid dries clear and you can use it to stop fraying on any fabric or trim. It should be included in any performance "Safety Kit" to keep costumes in good repair.
You can find this fantastic product in the notions section of any fabric store.
