hi all!

hi, i'm cindy, and i am excited to be on the the etsy raqs team! i am a new member, i just got my etsy shop up and running this month. my shop name is 'cinderelly', after a pet name my grampa used to call me...i'm cindy, so he called me his 'cinderella', but cinderella seemed to always be taken, and also a little more formal than i am. i liked the form of the name the mice on the disney version called her, 'cinderelly', kind of a little more laid back, like me!


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!

Thats beautiful top. I'm glad you got to post about your store and you. I'm sure everyone is quite sick of me now. Please inform us when you post more of your lovely tops and other belly dance items.
