Belly Dancing Costume
I made the costume very quickly but I was happy with the effect.
The skirt is Vogue 8818, and the fabric is a sequin fabric from Spotlight. The gold trim fabric is from Spotlight as well, a gold circle fabric. The hip scarf was purchased.
The top is made from a black organza(I think) from my stash. I used McCalls 5050. I just cut it off at the waist and didn't add any elastic at the waist because I wanted a loose top, I just added the elastic at the neckline.. I put a row of the gold trim at the bottom but I didn't do a very good job.
The costume was effective and comfortable so I was happy. My kids only took a video so that's why I used the mannequin for pictures.
Happy Sewing and Shimmies !
