New "Old" Costume

This is my latest finished costume creation. I took it for a test drive at the hafla this week, along with my new solo (which could have used more than 30 minutes of rehearsal!). I was going for an "antique" look, with the lace and pearls. The pink fabric just struck me as being very '20s-'30s. I made a triangle bra top, some ruffles "bloomers" and an apron overskirt. There is also a lace choker, but apparently it decided to get lost in the small room I call my belly dance costume closet (aka the guest room). I'd like to add some pearl details to the coin belt. This is the one time that I'm happy my belt and other gold coin accessories are so tarnished! They fit right in!
