I have been asked several times over the last few months on how to make bellydance costumes in particular how to make belts. So I put together a class on how to do just that and more! The class will cover how to make basic pieces for beginning dancers or if you are looking for new ideas. We will have time to share ideas and learn from each other. Pass the info on to anyone you think would be interested. Please contact me if you are interested so I know how much materials to purchase. Email me or call me 223-1356 to confirm you spot.
