size / dimensions: ed in seeing it
Selling by the foot or by the yard or purchase all of it? It is over 200 inches. Each of the seven different colored 'bands' is hand sewn on this piece. All of it is cotton. 17 feet long, over 200 inches. The colorful bands are 4" wide. Including the yellow, thin cotton, it is 6.5" wide. Six colorful cotton bands all hand stitched unto that beautiful cotton backing. The top yellow part WAS a full, multi-paneled light cotton skirt made into a full circle which was too old and fragile to withstand the weight of the bottom multi-banded layers (so I cut it and will be making a short twirly dance skirt out of it eventually.) The backing is really interesting also. Appears to be a very fine handmade cotton cloth hand dyed an interesting shade of pink and thicker than the cotton parts and appears to be hand woven. Let me know if you would be interested in seeing it. Better appreciated if you actually see and touch it.
