Buckskin dress color help!

So I have been given my godmothers beautiful dress to dance weomans traditional. I have had it tailored to fit me and had it smudged down. The one thing I was wondering is if I can dance at a powwow in it since its NOT a white buckskin but a golden yellow. I have the proper accessories and and bead work but was wondering if this is okay to dance in since I have only seen the white dresses at the powwows I have attended.
Thanks for your time. :)

White is a fashion trend. If you look at historical pictures you will see all variations of colors of buckskin dresses.Only you can decide if it's a "real" dress and only you can decide to honor it.
That's my opinion and take that however you wish !

First Listen to wardancers advice and think it through.

As a suggestion,

you said, it is an old dress of your mothers side with beadwork. That sounds like a real dress. Why not do dance with that dress to honor the past through the present to the future from your mom to your daughter one day?

You will have to dance in it at some event to see if it is right for you. You will know if the creator is pleased.
