Panel skirts are long rectangles of fabric that hang down the front and back center in a mock skirt. They look great layered over salawar or flared leg pants & full skirts. Here’s a quick guide to how to make a tribal bellydance panel skirt using only a bandhini wrap and simple notions.
About Tribe Nawaar
Tribe Nawaar Marketplace LLC is dancer owned and operated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado, USA. We hand select or hand make our pieces using only the finest materials and sources.
We know how every piece of our clothing, costuming, jewelry and accessories performs with movement, how it wears on stage and off and we would proudly dance in any of the garments we sell!
Just added: a great mix of new bellydance belts plus helpful tips & tricks from Tribe Nawaar. In our updated article you’ll learn how we deal with less than ideal belt lengths in our troupe.
Traditionally worn low on the hip, our hand-wrapped silk tassel belts are a favorite of tribal belly dancers! With amazing color & movement, it’s no surprise to see them turned into festival tasseled skirts, too!
Here are a few of our latest and greatest treasures…
Costuming Combination Of The Month
The hand-dyed bandhini fabric is only part of what has made our Jaipur Skirts, Pants & Tops so famous. These cotton gauze fabrics are also lightweight and flow beautifully with movement. Add in a traditional gota band Kuchi belt and necklace and you have a stage ready look!

What People Are Saying...
So where do I send that glowing review of the always fabulous customer service for Tribe Nawaar – your skirts are much better quality than others. I’ve pawned off a couple from other vendors that looked great in the pictures, but were not anywhere near as nice once the real deal showed up.
You always send the order quickly too – are you sure you are real belly dancers?
Jennifer is an excellent instructor of ATS bellydance! I have studied various styles for over 20 years (mostly cabaret) and have performed professionally, but have always had a desire to study ATS®. I am so happy that the universe led me to Jennifer. She started me with the basics, ensuring that I understood the specific postures and body inflections that are so classic to ATS®. I greatly appreciated her gentle corrections that were so important to getting the style right. I am now an active member of the Tribe Nawaar performance troupe and love it! The ladies are awesome and very welcoming. This is definitely a supportive sisterhood environment. Jennifer has done a fantastic job with this troupe. Her teaching style is gentle, but firm. After class you have access to browse her bellydance boutique which is a major bonus. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much for quick the shipment. I am not a small woman and I found the sizes and comfort of your clothes to be amazing. I love the Sassy Flared pants and have seen many instructors in them but could never find them in my size. They are so comfortable and hide a curvy belly really well, add the rose hip skirt and I almost cried at how good it looked. Imagine a large size girl in tight pants and not feeling self conscience. Everything fits great, looks great and I cant wait to dance in it.
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your marketplace! I received my order yesterday in time to wear it to class and it was wonderful. I and several of my friends have ordered from you and your products are always of excellent and consistent quality; I never have to worry about what I’m going to get.
The skirt is gorgeous; as a silk dyer, I am very appreciative of the lovely dyework on this piece. I am a new fan of Tribe Nawaar Marketplace….blessings to you!
“One Of The Best Things To Happen To Me”
The classes from Jennifer are one of the best things to happen to me, and I wear clothes from the store all the time (so much so that I carry Tribe Nawaar business cards in my pocket for people who ask me where I got some piece of my outfit). The studio offers a warm welcoming environment to learn American Tribal Style. If you have any interest in this dance format Jennifer will give you precise instruction and a fun class!
“I feel like Goldy Locks”
I have bought cheaper pants like these in the past, and I have bought more expensive ones also. But yours fit ‘just right!’ I LOVE these pants!
I rec’d my package and I have to tell you I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that red Jaipur skirt and can’t wait to wear it. You are right it is pretty, bright and will be great for our outdoor performances. Thank you again Jennifer for your prompt response and beautiful service …greatly appreciated!
“Best Belly Dance Instructor”
Jennifer is an incredible teacher who helps you reach past your limits while being entirely supported by her and the community of dancers she has organized. It is obvious that Jennifer truly cares about her students and is dedicated to the promotion of Belly Dance. She teaches with her body, mind, and spirit in a fully committed, beautiful fashion. Her insights into the evolution of dance and the personal empowerment to be gained through practice, makes her the best belly dance teacher!
I have placed orders several times with Tribe Nawaar in the past and have loved everything I have ordered. The quality and beauty of each piece was really far and above anywhere else I have shopped….
I want to thank you for your excellent customer service- the speedy delivery …and the clarity of your description of what you had available. We were in quite a pinch and they absolutely saved the day (and my sanity)…thank you thank you thank you thank you!
~I will recommend Tribe Nawaar to anyone!
“She Teaches From The Heart”
If you have taken a class from Jennifer, you know how lucky you are. She teaches from the heart. Jennifer works hard to create a dance environment where, seasoned and new dancers alike feel comfortable, and questions are welcomed. Technique is a must, whether it’s learning arm placement, hand floreos, how to isolate and much more, and instruction is given in a way that encourages and supports students.
Do I look forward to class, and seeing my dance mates? Absolutely!
By the way, if you haven’t visited her boutique, you’re missing out on a superlative shopping extravaganza!
Hello, I just received my first order on the choli sutra tops. I have to say that I am beyond excited. It has been an ordeal trying to find a website that has choli top for the well endowed dancer. The fit is perfect and the velvet streches which make dancing alot easier. Thank you for making a well made piece with affordable prices!
Lots of friends own your skirts and state they’re the best and excellent value for money… I have seen the skirts up close and definitely agree…
“Such A Great Experience”
I started tribal (belly dance) in February of 2010 and I loved it! The girls were so nice and encouraging and Jennifer is great at teaching technique and is very patient. This is the perfect fit for anyone willing to put in the time to grow and explore this style of dance!
Just wanted to let you know that the skirt is fabulous!! Everything arrived in plenty of time, and the whole audience was envious!!
I am a high energy blues singer, and the skirt flowed with my every move! All my friends want to order one!
Of course, I will be ordering more!!
Very pleased, and thank you so much for all your help!!
I have never been more pleased with a company’s products/personalized customer service/prompt follow through. The quality of fabric in every piece I’ve purchased is awesome. Tribe Nawaar has great colors and creative designs ….I was amazed how well they fit and the craftsmanship… Keep up the Awesome Marketplace!
“Jennifer is Very Empowering!”
Jennifer is an amazing and sophisticated belly dancer. She’s also the sweetest person! If you are a beginning student you will feel very welcomed and free to move at your own pace. More advanced dancers; her posture and arm technique training is the best! I highly recommend Jennifer, whether you want to dance for fun or on a stage!
YAY! This just made my day! …You are amazing. If I had gold stars I’d give you like 50!
Wanted to let you know that I LOVE every item I ordered.. the quality of merchandise that you carry really is top of the line. I love the white/purple cupcake skirt. The color of the skirt, as well, as the teal choli is so deep and rich, they will look great when I perform..
Excellent instruction that is easy to relate to, (Jennifer) is detailed and is considerate and interested in your overall dance progression. A great place to get acquainted with/study the American Tribal Style dance format. Tribe Nawaar also has built a familial atmosphere where dancers can help each other and grow together.
