i am a professional seamstress, sewing out of my home for a bridal salon most of the time, and sometimes for a local designer. but i love bellydance and sew bellydance costumes, way more than i can use for myself! i have serious commitment issues...i have taken lessons in cabaret, and gypsy, and tribal, and now back to cabaret again....so you'll never know what i will be sewing up next!
i have this choli in my shop right now, it ties in back to make for a good fit, and has vintage sari edges detail on the sleeves. they have pretty, sparkly, tiny, sequins and gold thread sewn on chiffon. (i adore sparkly!)
i have made many of these cholis in the past, and i also have a couple that i dance in. they are really comfortable and look great whether worn alone, or under a coin bra. i only have two things in my shop right now, but hope to put a lot more things into it now that the bridal season is slowing down to a crawl finally (thank goodness...it was a crazy summer!) i have a pink one cut out, and it also will have the sari edges but a little different pattern. i bought several yards of it from my favorite tribal vendor, silk road tribal, so i have a few ideas for projects to be coming!
