Talking How to cut out a top to bead on?

I am currently making a northern tradish buskin dress. My top is gonna made out of canvas and fully beaded. Have my design and everything. Just have to cut out the top and bias tape it and what else? I am confused, I'm scared I'll ruin it some where along the way. I've been checkingout others and the good ones too. I have an idea, but some good advice from ya'll would be nice?

Talking beaded top

well it depends on what type of style your lookin at. If you can give some examples (dancers) I can tell you how they do it. But over my way, we have two pieces. The front and the back. Even the cut of the top can tell you what tribe you are. But good luck!!

Talking alrightie then.........

i know what i want but it's hard to explain. i'm obviously from the north so we'll start with that. I'm making a northern traditional buckskin outfit for myself. the top i was thinking of to cut out is in 3 pieces? ya know? front left---front right and the back. a metal zipper in the front center, this way when i dance, all i have to do is just put the top on like a jacket. so that's my idea. i wanna make sure i cut it out right so on my shoulder's it doesn't look like it's rounded or too boxy looking? get it. so i guess i should be more specific huh? sorry. i just want some advice on which direction to get started in, because i'll be beading this and wearing it until i die........so to speak......hehe

thanks for your info though, very helpful.

Question beaded top

hey schoolgyrl
when you say you make it like a jacket, do you use a pattern for a jacket or free hand it? I'm attempting a fully beaded top also and any ideas would sure help.

Unhappy Beading top

well yeah, that's why i posted the first thread. i was wondering how to cut out the top. i doubt if i'll use a jacket pattern. i'll probably measure from my neck to shoulder, then the length i want it from my shoulder to the end. then with the front and back i'll measure from my neck to what length i want it be which will probably be about 3 inches from the bra line down. (hehe, best way to explain) then for the sides, under my arms, about the same length will be sewn together.

this is my best guess. i'm still checking out others and whut not. but i have not cut out my top yet. kinda scared.....hehe but i should have it cut out soon, very soon, like this weekend soon .

hope this helps.

Smile Cut it out already

Well I cut out my top. Just the way I wanted, in three pieces. I biased taped it up, sewed on some paper backing, and have began to bead my border. After seeing it all cut, it seems to have been cut out just right. The area to bead doesn't seem all that huge as I expected. Now that I've started, it's coming along just fine. I'm pretty satisfied with the out come. I'll be ready to dance in a very short time.
