Since I use an upholstery needle I can even make the thread double for the whole length by making a fat knot on the end!
For the fringe take one piece of leather the length of the breastplate, and the lenght you want for the fringes, lay it down on a SOLID surface and cut the fringes, then apply with the same needle to the outside of the breastplate,,, AFTER all the beadwork is complete, otherwise the fringes will interfere with beading progress and get in the way of the threading!!!
You can also add a bit of ribbon work to the fringes as a colour divider example braid the 4 colors then add to the edges of the support leathers on all 4 uprights.
