Just by using different materials and a slightly modified pattern, you can create the one-of-a-kind dress for your little girl! When did fringe clothing come popular? In the 20’s, then again in the 70’s and maybe even nowadays, according to the New York Fashion Week for 2016. For me personally, I love fringe! I may have gone a bit overboard on this gold fringe halter dress but I have to admit, she looks adorable in it!
This tutorial is part of both, a modification to a regular knot dress (I’m using my own pattern, the Whimsy Couture ‘Knot dress’ pattern) and some luxurious gold lame’ spandex material. Wow, what an awesome feel this material has! It’s definitely not an all-garment material but for a skirt part on a dress, it’s perfect!
Gold Fringe Halter Dress
….a modification to a regular knot dress pattern.
For this example I used my own pattern, the Whimsy Couture Tie Band Knot Dress pattern. Any knot dress or other pattern would work well too, to turn it into a halter dress. The gold material is lame’ spandex that I purchased a while ago. The backing is smooth and dull. It’s a great and sturdy material. You want to sew it a bit differently since it’s so thick but more on that in the tutorial.
How To Make A Gold Fringe Halter Dress
The following images have illustrations of the halter ties. Position the ties diagonally onto the front bodice with an equal distance to each other and slightly slanted towards the sides. Place the lining of the front bodice with right sides together, onto the ties.
