Elvis Suit

Posted by adrian_2007 (My Page) on

I am looking to make an Elvis suit. I want to make the white one with the fringes and beads on the front. Can anyone tell me where I can get the fringing with the beads on or do I need to get them separatley. The fringing is about 12 inches long I think.

RE: Elvis Suit

Do you have a picture of the suit that you can post? Is it leather fringe? If it is, I think you can get the leather fringe at fabric stores or craft stores, then you can buy the beads separately and slide them on the fringe yourself. HTH

RE: Elvis Suit

White microsuede won't fray at the edges. If you can't locate readymade fringe that long (I have never seen it and assume Elvis had his suit custom-made), make your own. Like Noinwi suggested, slide beads onto the fringe.

It will surely take some time to accomplish this ambitious project, make sure you have a sharp, new blade in your rotary cutter!

Post pictures when you're done so we can see it.
