I teach regular classes on Monday nights for the past decade and my students have a bi annual student recital. In 2011 we did a saaidi performance and I wanted to have something that would work with all dancers and look good on stage. I found this fabric on the local fabric market and made eleven saaidi dresses. Months later I still found sequins everywhere. They work great on stage, and we’ve used them for student recitals, with baladi perfoamcnes of Sense of Bellydance and my fello teacher borrowed dresses for her student recital. The pattern was included in the costuming book that I wrote and published in 2007.
