  • Question

    Okay, lately I've been seeing the cloth dresses, with the buckskin frings on the yokes. If you do this, is it considered cloth or buckskin??

      My daughter's dress is like that.... I would consider that cloth.

      What would you call it, tho, if someone wore a cloth cape, with hide fringe, and a hide skirt? A friend of mine has a dress like this. She has a beautiful velvet green cape, with light-colored hide fringe. She has two skirts to go with this. One is velvet green, and the other is the same hide that the fringe is made of.
      I am who I am. No more, no less.

        There's a lot of women here in the NW who wear dresses with a cloth yoke, buckskin fringes and a buckskin skirt. And they dance with the women's traditional buckskin.

          I agree with lightning, buckskin fringe and skirt always dance in buckskin categories where I've gone. However, there is a particular dancer that I recall whose dress is satin with buckskin fringe and she competes in cloth.

              In our area... they juss put all cloth/buckskin traditonal together.

              I have a dress like this also. If they divided up the categories.. I would go into cloth. In schemitzun, women with dresses like this also went into "cloth." There was only one woman in the "Northern Traditonal" category without a beaded top. Her top was made of a pendelton blanket.. I guess. It looked really nice, too!! I hope they have the cloth category again in Schemitzun this year.

                by Guest
                Hello, I have a question for you all:) I did have a cloth dress that was made in almost the exact same style as a buckskin dress, right down to the long fringe on the cape, and underdress.
