I've finished another bellydance costume.

The bra cup base is hard cups from sugarpetals.com, the belt base is of my own design and cut from thick felt reinforced with interfacing. The fabric is chinese brocade.

Usually I do beading intensive costumes, but this was mostly layers of beaded lamp fringe to speed up the time. The metal accents are kuchi jewelry.

I an currently working on a similar costume and photographing it at most steps.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Gorgeous as always! 

I love it with the lilac skirt - is that just a cirle skirt?
And how does the belt do up?  Is there just a strip of velcro on the sides?

It's a circle skirt, a simple one.

The belt is two panels. I've overlapped stitched it on one end (but the stitches can be opened up in case of adjustments) and three hooks and eyes on the open end. I never use velcro because most of my costumes are too heavy to use it, it takes up too much space and needs too much flat space, takes more work if you need to make a belt larger or smaller, and I simply don't trust it.

I add the hooks and eyes after lining the costume.

Absolutely stunning!!  I *love* how the circle skirt really does pick up the lighter colors in the brocade BEAUTIFULLY!  Hope your dancing was a blast!
