Hi my name is Jerry Baer I have been making bead gowns and costumes for girls and boys in pageants and stage wear since 1970's.. The costume in question looks like the design was beaded and used as appliqued to the fabric... Now the fringe takes a long time to make You string one bead at a time as long as you like your fringe to be and leave about 3-5 inchs of thread so you can sew it on the costume
If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 1-330-453-1055 (Eastern Standed Time Zone U.S.A.)

Was looking at the picture from "Nine" again.

The beaded trim has been applied up side down, at least in the center.
See that 3-D fall of trim?? That's the trim secured down under the
band, tightly, up-side down. When turned right side up, it flows. ie,
besides a good effect, another way to hide the band.
