  • Harness

    Another little questions regarding grass dance outfits. Umm...I am the one making my first grass dance outfit and it is for a 4 yr old boy. I was told that those "half harnesses" are sort of "in" for grass dancers. Just have like half the harness hanging down from the belt..and the breastplate is worn on the top. I've seen some pictures of this fashion and looks pretty cool. Any comments? I think I am going to make this style for this boy. Wow, its cool, because I get to experiment on the making of my first grass dance outfit!!

    Any comments from you grass dancers would be appreciated again! *LOL*. Thanks a bunch!

    Comments and/or Suggestions?????? Anyone??? LOL
