I often wear this in my Pirate Costume, but You can also wear it for bellydance, clubbing, whatever.
It's made from an old Chinese dudou that I bought in Flushing Chinatown New York (2002). But, it was so poorly made that there was no use in fixing it, since I'd fixed it multiple times.
So, I made this!
Sounds like psychic sewing! LOL!
Same deal, poorly made, cheap plastic fiber fabric. It's machine embroidered with a "feng huan" (often translated as "Chinese Phoenix").
The inside lining is real vintage 1970s silk from China.
