Halloween is just around the corner, so naturally we’ve been brainstorming some simple DIY costume ideas. One costume idea that we love is the classic flapper, complete with a fringe skirt and an embellished headband. With this in mind, we dreamed up this DIY fringe skirt that would be perfect for any 20’s inspired costume. It’s incredibly simple, and you could keep wearing it long after Halloween is over. Check out our tutorial below! You can find our flapper inspired items at mjtrim.com.
1. Get your supplies. All you need is some fringe, scissors, fabric glue, and a plain black skirt. If your skirt is elastic, make sure it has a zipper in the back. You may also want to stretch it out a bit with a piece of cardboard before you attach your fringe.
2. Measure out and cut a length of the fringe that will go all the way around the skirt, and perfectly lines up with the bottom of the skirt. Cut another length of fringe that will go all the way around at the top of the skirt.
3. Use your Unique Stitch glue to glue down the bottom piece of fringe. You may want to use a ruler and pencil to draw your desired line before you glue it down.
4. Add the second piece of fringe at the top of the skirt, gluing it down in little sections with your fabric glue.
