A costume I made in 2007 for the PA Renfaire (photo is 2008) from Folkwear’s Turkish Dancer pattern. One of the easiest patterns I have ever worked with and makes an attractive and flattering costume. Unfortunately, I lost the pattern in a move. The Entari (gown) is made of polyester brocade and bound with bias tape. The hat is a Lynn McMaster’s Italian Pillbox made of velvet and pieces of a pair of earrings that were too heavy to wear. The pants are a silk blend and based off a salwar pattern on Shira’s Belly Dancing page. There is also a jacket, not pictured, of raspberry crushed velvet lined with golden paisley rayon jacquard and a vest (not pictured, and long gone) of red brocade. I’ve been sitting on this post for 3 years waiting to get another picture, but I don’t see that happening any time soon as I’m selling the costume.
