    There are a couple threads discussing bustle construction recently as well as a good thread by bwhite in the fancy feather forum. You may also want to pick up a copy of the C. Scott Evans book Northern Traditional Dancer. You can get it from crazycrow, nocbay or in the powwow shop on this website.
    The things you are doing today are the traditions of twenty-five years from now.

      or you can borrow it from a friend that dances or is connected to dancing or heck just has a copy!If you intend to use the bustle construction area and you are looking to make a tradishional bustle then a few things need to change on the instructions, like for instance , you don't usually put hackles on tradish bustles , most tradish dancers now don't make they're feathers straight , alot do but most around here don't ,in tradishional dancingyou only have 1 bustle instead of double. there are a ton more things but I can't name them all.good luck.

        I'm looking for help to make a bustle. One of the things I can't figure is how to do the star when you wrap the dowel rods or whatever use use to extend the feathers. I also wanted to know if it would be considered improper to use my husband's firefighter patch in the center instead of a beaded medallion....
