Question Curtain weights

I knew this lady that sewed curtain weights to the inside of her shawl for the swing effect. I also heard of them being used in buckskin dresses. Do you think that's cheating?

BUT I WOULD NEVER DO THAT!

weights, bells, soon whistles???

The sway is all in the way you dance.........adding weights is WEAK! I can't believe someone would actually do that. What looks really tacky are those women who swing thier arm just to get the swaying effect, that looks really bad!!!

As for bells, we were always taught that women don't use bells on thier outfits, my Kauly told me that they use to put bells on the "lose" women to keep track of em cuz they were always "runnin' around" where they shouldn't be. But that's just the way i was taught, of course other tribes have other teachings.

That's truly a new one on me, I never heard of such CRAP!!
my problem (and no, I don't use weights or swing my arm/hips):

How do you get the shawl/fringe to NOT sway???


OH!!! And I have brass thimbles on the bottom of my breastplate, does that count as a bell??? hhhmm.............it makes a noise....
