I also belly dance and make costumes.
Here is a bra I made for my teacher.  I was rather proud to see her in it on a flyer around town.


That's gorgeous! You did a fantastic job!!! I've only made one bra. It was one week of HELL! I'm super proud of it though! Bras are quite an undertaking!

Thanks for posting this. It combines my crochet and bellydance, my two major addictions! I want to make this belt in a cotton yarn, do you think one of those little skeins of Sugar n' Cream in each color would be enough? (I'm asking before I go to the store, because I don't have much money, and I don't want to overbuy.) I'm making my costume in black, with red, purple, and gold accents. When I (finally) get it finished, I'll post pics!

It took me a little over  2/3 of a skein of each color I used. (I used 2 colors.) So I used the larger skeins of the Red Heart Super Saver yarn. So I'm not sure how that would translate into the cotton yarn. I would probably get 2-3 skeins of each color.

that is neat. As a dancer and a broke college student and other things, its so hard to find cheap accesories. many times i reuse old dresses and add a hipscarf for an outfit. my fav is the a-symmetrical prom dress and a silver coin belt.

Thank you! I was in the exact same boat as you when I made that belt! Now I'm just a broke college graduate. Trying to become a broke graduate student. This belt was seriously just the cost of 2 skeins of yarn and a fair amount of time to make it! ^_^

Beautiful belt Kasihime! I've just started crocheting it...I was wondering how you did your darts? I've just learnt the Tunisian double sided Afghan stitch so that I can start it, but I can't find any information about creating the sort of dart increase your illustration shows...am I missing something?  Wink

*lol* I researched for ages and couldn't find an answer online, so I kinda botched my way through it Rissa, after a bit of puzzling, I created a dart by picking up 5 stitches at the beginning of a row, then casting them off again so I went backwards, then picked them up again and carried on till the end of the row. Does that make sense? It created a dart anyway! Grin
