DIY Jil Sander fringes
I´ve been wondering the whole summer how could one make a dress similar to SS09 Jil Sander draped fringe dresses. The longest fringe ribbon I´ve been able to buy from my local button shop is 25cm high. Looks great but still way too short to cover an entire back of an dress. Valerie from Bleach Black has made her own fringe fashions by using yarn and tape so you are able to make the fringes as long as you need. To help you make the fringes exactly the same length, wrap them around two pieces of cardboard (with the right height) and steam iron any creases out. Takes a bit of time, but totally worth the trouble. Check out her tutorial and the entire SS09 collection from Jil Sander to get more ideas on how to arrange the fringes.
