First of all, I suggest WONDER UNDER instead of Heat and Bond, or at least heat and bond LITE.

Use a medium heat setting on the iron, and iron the WonderUnder to the wrong side of the sequin fabric. Lay something under the sequin fabric in case the adhesive from the sequins oozes out...left over WonderUnder paper works great, or the new silicone ironing sheets, or just white paper.

Work gently, because the act of ironing the sequins loosens their own adhesive. Let it cool down between steps.

Then trace your design on the paper side, cut it out and peel off the paper, place on your base fabric, cover with WonderUnder paper backing or white paper, then iron into place, being careful not to heat it up too much, or move the sequins, or fabric out of place.

You will still need to zig-zag stitch the edges down...hence the use of wonderunder instead of the deadly heatandbond.

On the dress: just an A-line dress would be fine. The flared dresses/skirts are cool.

Agree 100% with wyorose. WonderUnder is lighter in weight and more flexible than the Heat n Bond LITE. If doing single appliques then the Heat n Bond LITE will work fine and will be easier to use. If you are layering the appliques, use the WonderUnder instead. Don't use regular Heat n Bond. It is too heavy/stiff.
For the sequin fabric, never iron it directly or all your sequins will come off onto your iron! Try to iron from the back side only and with the paper buffer.

I like the look of a circle skirt which gives a nice flare without bulk at the waist.. If you choose a dress pattern, just make sure that the skirt hem will be wide enough to accomodate your leg movements. Good luck!
