FRINGE FABRIC RECOMMENDATIONS

Since the original Fringe pattern was released a few years ago, I have seen it made up in so many different fabrics, and as with any pattern, the fabric can really transform the look and feel. You can check out the hashtag #fringedresspattern on Instagram for inspiration. You really can’t go wrong if you use one of the substrates mentioned below – in fact, you probably have something suitable in your stash right now – but I thought I would round up a few recommendations inspired by some of the tester versions.

As a reminder, here are the recommended fabrics and yardage requirements.

Recommended main fabrics: rayon challis, rayon crepe, rayon voile, cotton lawn, cotton voile, cotton shirting, linen, double gauze.

Required trims:

  • ½ yard (0.4 M) of Tricot fusible interfacing or lightweight fusible interfacing

  • Five 1/2” (1.25 cm) Buttons (VIEW A ONLY)

  • Optional: Safety Pin, Turning Tool

It can be hard not to be able to touch and feel the fabric when making your selection, but I have found that when I purchase from a trusted indie fabric shop, I know the fabric will be high quality. I can recommend the shops listed below since I personally shop with them, but there are a ton of great online shops all over the world. I have linked to their woven fabric sections for easy reference.
