I have a dog that's half pit bull, half poodle. Not much of a guard dog, but a vicious gossip.
I've got no shortage of things to blog about this week but as it's Monday I'll talk belly dancing costume (tonight's my class).
I will be making my first public performance in a couple of weeks so I'm costume obsessed at the moment.
I've made my first Choli.
It's a combination of block printed African fabric and Amy Butler. (I had scraps of both and this was really just to test out the pattern).
I can actually say it looks better on me than my mannequin, she hasn't got the stuff to fill it out. Sometime I'll get a picture of me wearing it - maybe tonight.
Anyway, I'm delighted with the pattern. It fits me perfectly! It was an adaptation of the Folkwear Tribal Dance Choli. But I changed it quite a lot.
There's an amulet hanging from the centre front and two at the side slits. I copied the beaded amulet from one of my vintage Afghani dresses.
[Speaking of breast amulets, I just got the news that I have been accepted to the Playtex MoonWalk Marathon in May. You'll be hearing more about it, no doubt.]
beautiful vintage sari fabric.
