Today I’ll be sharing how to make your own kimono with fringe! This is a perfect afternoon for all my thrifters out there! You can snag an old floral robe for a couple bucks and turn it into an amazing layer to toss on over any outfits to add a bit or color and texture!
I love different ways to upcycle or recycle thrifted or older clothes! It’s such a fun project and I can see myself making a bunch more in the future! I’ve been finding myself checking out the old, sheer robes every time I’m at the thrift store now! Haha! I hope you try it out and love your as much as I love mine!
Here’s how to make a kimono with fringe:
– Go to a thrift store and buy a sheer kimono style robe of your choosing – there are always loads of them.
– Buy some brush fringe – you can usually find it in the home decor section. I bought mine at Joann’s.
– Chop your robe to whatever your desired length is.
– Fold 1/2 inch around where you cut and iron. Repeat again. [to prevent from fraying.]
– Pin the fringe on top of the ironed fold.
– Sew in place.
I also chose to alter my sleeves because the fit wasn’t right.
And there you go!
