Oh, such fun! In collaboration with Fat Chance Belly Dance, the talented folks at Folkwear created this pattern (Folkwear 144) for tribal style belly dance outfits -- a fusion of traditional Middle Eastern belly dancing and American ingenuity. The style is distinctive in its elaborate costuming that begins with the basic components included in this pattern and is then embellished according to each dancer's individual style.

This pattern is the perfect starting point for creating your own stunning style, whether you are a dancer, historic reenactor, or lover of exotic fashion. Layer the Coin Bra on top of the Choli, the Tassel Belt and Hip Shawl on top of the Ten-Yard Skirt and Pantaloons. Your personalized selection of fabrics, fringes, tassels, adornment, jewelry, and make-up will turn this tribal collection into a wondrous extravaganza of color and movement. Pattern includes graded pieces for choli, cutting diagrams for other garments, and complete instructions for all garment assembly, fringe- and tassel-making, and embellishment.

Suggested fabrics for this pattern, Folkwear 144: For the Choli, choose medium-weight cottons and cotton gauze. For the pantaloons, choose medium-stiff taffeta for the legs and medium-weight cotton for the hip band. For the ten-yard skirt, choose light- or medium-weight cotton broadcloth, any weight cotton gauze or voile, light- or medium-weight rayon challis. For the hip shawl, choose sturdy, medium-weight fabrics that can stand up to the stress of being ted snugly around the hips. For the tassel belt, choose a sturdy piece of decorative fabric for the belt and medium-weight cotton for the belt lining/tie band. For the coin bra, choose costumers' buckram bra cups or a ready-made bra, decorative, sturdy fabric for covering the cups, and the same or contrasting fabric for straps.

Choli: Misses Small (10-12) to 2X Large (26-28) in B, C, and D cups; other garments gathered or tied to fit.??

Since the 1970s, Folkwear patterns have been used by theatre and dance costumers, historic reenactors, art-to-wear-aficionados, and anyone who enjoys dressing up. Folkwear patterns are based on vintage fashions and traditional ethnic garments for an authentic look. But with a fresh eye and creative touch, these timeless styles can become exciting and trend-setting wearable art today.
