This is one of three bellydance costumes that I made for a show my daughters did. The theme of the show was America, which is why I used the red, white and blue colors. The top and hip yoke are red velvet and the skirt is a white chiffon. The top buttons in the back and the skirt zips on the side. I adorn the outfit with hand sewn sequins and bead trims. I did use a pattern which I altered to give the desired look.
Red Velvet, white chiffon, 4 covered buttons, white zipper, red thread, white thread, sequins and more sequins.
Me, for staying up for 48 hours straight to get them done in time for the show!
