Not a panel skirt, also not gold. Just another rectangular piece of fabric. Can be MADE into a panel skirt (but isn't there yet).

We contacted the buyer and offered to take the skirt back and refund. The buyer has decided to keep the skirt. It is always a disappointment when our handmade products don't meet expectations. There are many types of panel skirts and we feel that we described this 2 panel skirt with the front panel width and back panel width plus length. We also stated that there were no seams; edges were finished. We strive to describe plus photograph as accurately as possible as our items are often unique. The fabric is a blend of gold and silver metallic threads; it reflects cooler or warmer depending upon the temperature of the light source. We encourage all potential buyers to contact us with any questions, requests for additional photographs and measurements. We will gladly provide any of the above.

Not really a wrap skirt--just one rectangular piece of fabric. However, the fabric will work for making a slim panel skirt with matching top.

We contacted the buyer, offered to take the skirt back and refund. The buyer has decided to keep the skirt. We are always disappointed when our hand made items are not what a buyer expected. The buyer stated they expected the skirt to overwrap and be made of soft flowy fabric. We believe that our description of the skirt as one piece of fabric with no seams is correct. We listed the size at the hip band; overlap depends upon the dancer's size. We realize newer knit fabrics often have sequins pressed or formed into the fabrics; these fabrics will drape. This vintage fabric, as was shown in the close up photo and described has sequins sewn on chiffon. Lots of shine but less drape. We encourage all potential buyers to ask questions and request detailed photos; we will gladly provide any additional information.

About

Creating handmade quality items at affordable prices for all sizes of dancers.

Halimeda's Oasis started out as a collection of dance costuming and practice wear for Halimeda's dance students. During the 1990's, Halimeda provided a variety of costumes for her students; some were hand sewn and others were imported. Other dancers outside of In Step Studio, Inc. started asking Halimeda to bring costuming to their local events for sale. As a result, Halimeda now brings costuming to a variety of shows and workshops in the Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi area. With the addition of the travel to the teaching and performing schedule, it became necessary to have help for the handmade items. Two wonderful seamstresses joined the shop and continue to create new dance wear. Both Beth and Lee are dancers, performers and love to sew for other dancers. Mike, also a dumbec drummer, does the photography and shipping.

We love to create quality costuming for all sizes of dancers!

    Halimeda's Oasis started as a way to get quality custom made items for Halimeda's students. It continues with the same philosophy, though it takes several of us today to meet the demand to create, sew and ship world wide.

  • Beth

    Creator

    Beth creates many of the truly gorgeous ATS bras and belts in the shop. She has that very special artistic ability to tweak the basic design into something special.

  • Mike Redig

    Photographer, Shipper

    Mike loves the art of photography. While most of his work is done underwater and in other nature settings, he assists with Halimeda's by photographing the beautiful costuming. He also assists with the shipping when needed!

  • Lee

    Creator

    Lee has been creating belly dance and tribal costuming for many, many years. She not only does very detailed work but has ideas for new items continuously. She has provided many of our special dancer items such as cropped tops, skirts, and belts.
