DIY fly fringing

If you've marvelled at fly fringing on the elaborate clothing of the 1750s to 1770s and would like to add some to your own costumes check out Quaintrellelife for a tutorial.
Fly fringing has that delicate, fragile, spring flower look and the fringing on these sleeves must have been incredibly labour intensive. The effect however is delightful.
Viv has studied photographs and worked out how to produce the desired effect. There are also some links you can follow up if you don't already have many of the books mentioned. 
Will I give it a go?  Probably not as I have far too many UFOs (unfinished objects) including the dress, the hat, the stomacher and the walking stick.  I need to find a shop that sells time!
