hegs,

I'm with ndn and Eagle on the sinew.

I cut out my buckskin fringe to the length I want it. (usually 16-17 inches)Then I thread it into the sinew on the outer perimeter of the breastplate, in between each row. I then tie a knot to secure it to the sinew which produces two 8 inch pieces of fringe since the original fringe is doubled. It ends up looking nice and full.

Nobody even notices it is just for decoration. Even at ceremonial events!
