I've been panicked about an upcoming bellydance thing and having no costumes. so I went through my scrap and hit this website http://homepage.ntlworld.com/crispin.roche/sewing.htm which has a nice generator for panel skirts.  The pattern is mainly for flamenco, so I had to drop the waist and put in elastic, but it's not half bad for an evening after my first day assisting a homeroom teacher in a Japanese elemantary school (which is why my face looks like that)

Thanks, for skirt and abs complements! Both the sewing and the abs have started to fall into place lately (I thank craftster, my used sewing machine, and over a year of weekl/bi-weekly bellydance lessons)

Yeah, I was so happy when I found that web page. And the fabric comes from Cambodia (The pattern is typical of the Seam- reap temple area) i picked it up for about 4-5$. I was going to make a bed spread but realized I bought too little of it.

Not to take away from the lovely skirt,
but have you really noticed a difference from bellydancing?
i've been reading about it for awhile now
but had no teachers around here until recently
Just had a baby so i want to try something fun to fix the new spare tire

I've been studying bellydance for about a year now, I'm now going to class up to four hours a week and I'm looking forward to my first solo gig next month ( read "looking forward to" as "vaguely terrified of")

I've always been pretty solid at dance, but it was a challenge.

I started in because I needed something to keep me in shape and mentally sane here in Japan. It worked. You can just do it for fun, or totally geek out on technique, or get into studying about the history and costume styles, it's rather addictive. I used to do aerobics back in the states, but bellydance has really changed my posture, abs, stamina, and body image in a way that repetitive crunches or hyper-active stepping didn't. I can now do some wacky belly undulations and hip slides that surprise me.

That being said, a great deal depends on if you have a fun teacher who makes sure to keep competitive crap and bitchyness outside of the classroom, and balances technique with general doses of fun.

I'd highly recomend it as a hobby/excersize to pick up after a relocation/ body change/ life change/ what not.

And my craft background means that I have some great embriodered hip-scarves and I am taking on the chellenge of making my own bra and belt set.

YAAAAY! ME TOO! I'm very pleased to find other dancers on Craftster! I love the fabric for that skirt. It's beautiful!
