"Costuming from the Hip" By Dawn Devine ~ Davina

This was my first book! It's an overview of belly dance costuming and is a great place to start if you don't know where to begin.

"Costuming from the Hip" is a comprehensive reference for anyone who works with Middle Eastern dancewear. Dancers, costume makers, designers, and historical re-enactors will like the many illustrations, historical patterns, construction techniques, and hundreds of hints and tips. This 118-page book will take you step-by-step through measuring your body, researching your costume, laying out the patterns, fitting it, and accessorizing your creation.Detailed topics include:
• Making your measurement chart
• Turkish coats, kaftans, and thobes
• Veils
• Jewelry
• Designing for every body type
• Coin, tassle, and cabaret belts
• Bras and cholis
• Shirts, vests, and blouses
• Men’s wear
• Going professional.
