DIY Maxi Fringe Dress

Loving the fringe and  maxi dress trends?

Today’s post is a little out of my norm, it’s suuuuuper casual, and inspired by outdoor summer concerts.

Fun beats, dancing, cool breezes, extra loud singing, and laughing with friends.

So when I spotted the most interesting fringe dress at Top Shop and thought, I can make that!

And I DID make it using the same pattern I used for The LWD post (McCall’s Pattern, M6886).

The problem?
It was a little too Fred Flintstone-yish for me.
Maybe I did not cut the stripes thin enough..?
Maybe I felt too old..?

Either case, I found a way to make it work using my Fringe Tutorial tying info.

To take advantage of this Top Shop look, there are two ways…

  • Make the Dress, using McCall’s Pattern, M6886.
    • Extend the hem to the floor line.
    • Ditch the sleeve and hem armhole.
    • Make the fringe. Evenly cut 1″ stripes of fabric to desired length (I went to the knee).
  • Buy the dress, here, here, here, or here.
    • Make the fringe: Cut, cut, cut!
