    Crocheted skirts

    Are crocheted skirts out of style? Does anything in bellydance truly go "out of style"?
    I am thinking about the mermaidy-type skirt with a big flounce at the bottom. Tulay wore that style sometimes.
    Thanks!

    I don't think they went out of style so much as they became impossible to find! Threads come up periodically where we all beg each other for information on where to get one and no one ever knows.

    Once a vintage one came up on the swap meet and we all foamed at the mouth and tore each other to pieces over it. I don't remember who won, but the rest of us tore our garments, ripped out handfuls of our hair, and mourned for weeks.

    There are some pics in this thread:

    Here's another of the older threads: Turkish Beaded Crochet on YT

    I wish I still had one. They were really amazing.

    HAha, I even replied to that thread.
    Very much like the green costume in the picture Ozma posted in that thread.

    I have seen other skirts cuts, like Tarzan type ones, too, but I like long skirts.

    If someone could make these with matching arm things, what would be a good price? What if the set were sequin-less?

    Hah! If I'd known they were in such hot demand I would have raised my price! As it is, I have a never been worn one in emerald green with gauntlets promised to our very own Sabrina. For
    $150. If she should however change her mind, I'll let you know. I sold the silver set, eons ago. I remember I had to order them from Turkey and they took 6-8 months to get in. I never wore the green because the belt I had was cut too high in the back and the fringe was too short. Worked great though with a fringe monster belt!

    a couple of years ago, I saw a duet where both dancers had these crocheted skirts-one in a dark blue and the other in a purple. I tried desperately to buy them after the show, but they absolutely would not sell them.

    I bought one at Wiggles of the West last summer from Fatima al Wahid. Red. I had to fight some people off.
