Scissors, ideally of the badass tailoring variety (Any lucky Londoners reading this should check out William Gee near Shoreditch) because of the sharpness and length – in this instance, I’m afraid it’s more about size than how well you use them, simply because the larger said size is the easier the latter should be – sorry!
Knee length black dress (a little black one will do – you can’t beat the classics!)
Gold or metallic gel pen for sketching out lines
Medium-easyFiddly in places but smile of you like a bit of cut, stick ‘n’ colour!
Total cost£46, which just covers the fringing, so near enough the original predicted budget. I used an old dress. Also, you’ll need to stock up on sticks for your glue gun because, boy, you’re going to need them! Costings were the reason I gave this entry a late seasonal entrance and while I knew the budget would be a big ‘un, I can validly say, don’t let it put you off!
…Oh, and also, I think the original comes within the region of £9000 so my sartorial solution’s a drop in the ocean by comparison, to say the least. Besides, the original’s officially sold out online meaning it’s not an option anyway – so there!
