Tahitian Dance Costume
This outfit is modeled after traditional Tahitian dance clothing. It is mostly crocheted, except for the bikini-like part of the skirt. This was a project in 2009 for the same class as the Poem Dress, although it did not start out as such. The bra was one of my early experiments in clothing form, and became the basis for the Half Knit-Crochet Shirts. The belt and the jewel were also not part of the original design; however, since I had nothing with which I could wear the beautiful shiny belt, I decided to put them together. The jewel was to create a sense of continuity.
Perhaps, someday, I will make a better design and get to see this outfit in action.
