Making a cover-up for in between belly dancing shows. Planning on using this pattern from Decades of Style.
I am really struggling with the fabric choice though. It is for belly dance purposes, so I definitely don't want something too plain. But I am only 5 foot nothing and with too bold a fabric, that would definitely be too much look for my short round body.
These are some fabrics I am considering, conveniently on sale at Gorgeous Fabrics....
Any favorites? Or other recommendations? Or would all of these overwhelm me and I should just go with a solid of some sort?
Ack! And Shimmy!
ETA: Hmmm. The more I look, the more the subtlety of 13 and 14 appeal. Hmmmm. But then again, subtle not exactly the belly dancing way. :-D
More ETA: Now I may also be considering a pattern like the one below....
