Does the pattern need to meet in the middle when
I have tied my scarf? No, the pattern doesn't need to
meet, it is personal preference. You can always add some coins to
the less decorated areas!
Will my scarf stretch after I have tied it a
few times? It may stretch if constantly pulled tightly
over a long period of time. Adding a hook and eye to close the scarf
around your hips then loosely tying it is one suggestion to avoid
this. You may also wish to safety pin your hip scarf closed, then
loosely tying it.
Are the hip scarves very heavy with all the coins
and beading? Generally they are not as heavy as they
look. We mainly use aluminum coins on our products. They are lighter
to ship from the Middle East, so that keeps the cost lower and they
are less damaging to the fabric, not to mention easier on the dancers
Skirts and Veils:
My skirt is a little long, how can I alter this?
You may want to try rolling down the waist band rather than hemming
the skirt. Generally, a belt or scarf is placed over it as a final
touch. This is also a good idea as it makes the waist band not so
The skirt I purchased is sheer, do dancers wear
it on its own when they perform? This is personal preference
again. Some dancers do, some add a privacy short (like biking shorts)
and some layer it with another skirt or harem pants. A contrasting
color underneath always looks pretty and unique!
What is the standard veil size? A
veils length will vary with the dancers height, preference and how
it is being used. Generally you will find that veils are between
2.75-3 yards in length and at least 45 inches wide.
What is the difference between silk veils and
other materials? Silk flows and has a life of its own.
It is more difficult to use outdoors as it is so light weight, but
it really flows beautifully. Other materials tend to be heavier,
especially decorated materials so they are easier to control. Again,
it is personal preference, but its a good idea to familiar with
many types of fabric and how they move.
The top I purchased doesn't show my stomach as
much as I would like, what can I do? You can shorten
the straps a bit, maybe cross them in the back if they are detachable.
You may also tack or pin up the center base line of the top in the
front to make a reverse V cut on the stomach or do the same on the
The top I like is a scoop neckline, but I would
like a "V' neckline, is there a way to alter the scoop neckline?
You may just pin or tack the neckline from the inside,
hiding the pin or thread, downward towards the center of the chest.
Can the tops with all the sequin designs be washed?
When an item is handmade with sequin, stones, beads or
palettes do not wash them in a machine. Hand wash them gently, pat
dry the sparkles. The more you wash them they will lose their luster.
Try washing just the underarms and airing them out now and then
rather then washing the item often.
How can I wash the harem pants? Non silk harem pants may be washed in the machine on cold
or hand washed. Hang them to dry. To remove the wrinkles you can
steam them, iron them or after letting them be exposed to steam
in a bathroom, blow the wrinkles out with a hairdryer kept a few
inches from the fabric. We do not recommend washing the silk harem pants.
When I clasp my chain belt closed I have a lot
of extra links overlapping, what can I do? Try removing
some of the links so it will be easier to put on and take off.
One of my coins has fallen out, how can I stop
this from happening? It is a good idea to tighten all
the small loops connecting your chain belt with pliers before wearing
it frequently. It takes a bit of time, but it is worth it!
