Diy Fringing

Written by: Zanita Whittington


Heres the result of my DIY fringing, obviously not rocket science, I’ve just hand sewn the black fringing I bought from Lincraft around the collar of this Kookai long sleeve shirt. I’m so happy with the result though! I’ve teamed it with my drop crotch/harem pants I bought in thailand – they aren’t quite like the Comme de Garcons I’ve been craving but theres no H&M in Oz so they’ll have to do.
Its great having this location near my apartment to shoot for my blog, theres never anyone around so I don’t feel self conscious about posing with the timer and the sky always looks great. 

altTo go around the entire neckline I purchased a metre of black fringing, which cost about $15 dollars. One thing to remember when hand sewing is to make sure the edge of the fringing overlaps over the edge of the shirt so as to have a clean line around the collar. I’m also going to be hand-washing this shirt (argh!) as the fringing is at risk of getting in nasty tangles, its quite delicate.

 Sorry my photos aren’t any clearer I’m using my little Sony cybershot.
