Festival season is here! For the past few years, I have attended Coachella to watch my favorite bands perform, but the fashion scene is always so fun to see as well. Fringe and beautiful lace trim details are great ways to complete a festival outfit. Instead of shopping for something new, why not reinvent a piece in your wardrobe to have that festival flair. For this DIY, I took a tank from my closet and updated it with a lace fringe trim. You can easily follow the steps below for a variety of garments from crop tops, kimonos, or even shorts.
1. Lay the trim onto the bottom hem of the tank (starting at one sideseam). Then, sew along the top edge of the lace onto the tank. Remember to backstitch at the start of sewing to secure the stitch.
2. Continue sewing until the lace trim covers the entire hem (overlap the lace by ½” to create a seamless look). Backstitch again at the end of sewing.
