Before I could start on this fringe skirt DIY, I had to make sure I had the perfect bodycon skirt. I didn’t have one at home so I went out to buy one but if you have a skirt sitting in your closet, feel free to use it! 

Sew a fringe skirt

I also made sure to buy these gorgeous fringe trims. I think I bought about 5m of this trim. I bought the white fringe because I thought it would make for a stunning contrast against the black skirt.  

DIY fringe skirt


At first, I played around a little with the fringe trim. I had to figure out how much I wanted to use for the skirt. 

White fringe skirt

I decided that I would create five layers of fringe. I grabbed a pencil and started marking where I would cut the trim. I also used the pencil to mark where I would stick the trim on the actual skirt.

Attach the fringe

I made sure to open up the skirt’s zipper so that I wouldn’t stick fringe over it by mistake. I started at the top of the skirt and added a generous amount of fabric glue.  

How to sew a fringe skirt

I gently pressed on the fringe trim and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. I then flipped over the skirt. 

Add fabric glue

After turning the skirt over, I applied glue to the backside of the fringe trim. I then went ahead and attached the fringe to the other side of the skirt. 

How to make a fringe skirt

The top layer was looking great, so I cut off the excess fringe so that I could use it for the other layers. 

Start the next layer

I decided that each new fringe layer should start at the border of the layer above it. I went ahead and attached the other layers of the fringe trim just like I had done previously.

    I was cringing when I saw that you were putting the white fringe on a black skirt but it works so well!!! This is a great no-sew facelift for someone who doesn't sew....and if you do sew it's a easy way to sass up that old skirt. Gerta idea!!!

    I think it might be easier to make sure that the fringe doesn't get caught in the upper levels is to start at the bottom of the skirt and work up.
