This is an idea I had for adding a little interest…back there. I originally threw this together as a draft, but I’m happy with how it turned out. The edges of the ruffles were left raw (because it was a draft,) so it’s got a more rugged look. Will be good for Gothic Bellydance, Tribal, or Tribal Fusion. It is also sewn together with white thread on the black cloth…it’s what I had handy. Given my name, I think it’s ok, and you can’t see it much and what you could see is covered by the belt. I will be making more in colors to match other outfits, and in something much easier to gather. It is connected at the hips with elastic for now, my master plan calls for grommets and lacing.
