Veils – Chiffon

belly dance veil chiffonPolyester chiffon is the most popular material for belly dance veils because it's easy-care - you can stuff it in your dance bag after class and it won't mind!

This red chiffon veil (photo right) from Bellydance.com has a fine trim of gold sequins around the edge, which looks beautiful - but avoid beaded trims as they can be dangerous when dancing in a troupe.  I know (from personal experience) that even the tiniest beads can create a nasty cut if they hit someone in the face!

It's quite easy to make your own veil without a pattern, because it's just a large rectangle.   However be warned - making a neat rolled hem is a fiddly, slow, tedious job if you don't have a sewing machine with the right attachment!

When buying or making a veil, make sure to check the measurements.
