Belly Dancing Costume


The gals on Britex’s’ 3rd floor created this jeweled belly dancing (or “danse du ventre”) costume with a few trims and items from their floor, and a couple of snippets of wafting chiffon from the remnant floor. The fitted top is constructed using a beaded lace overlay top, with metallic coin fringe providing jingling interest. The collar is made of a pair of gemstone encrusted appliqués in shades of amber and coffee, the belt is of a length of swishing beaded trim, and the skirt is made of several panels of chiffon. Please come into our store, or call Darlene at 415-392-2910 if you are interested in buying any of these glittery and delightful trims or jewels! (Fitted top $19.85, gemstone appliqués $27.95/pair, bugle bead trim $13.95/yard, coin trim $21.95/yard)
