    If you use pigskin, would it still be a buckskin dress?

    Why don't you really save money and use that ultra-suede material from Wal-Mart?

    I typically use about 5 hides....I'm just a skinny little chick too. I use two on the "skirt" portion and one for each sleeve (I use fabric for the "yoke/shirt" part), then another for mocs, leggings, purses...

    That's just my general use of leather.

    I was set up at a flea market one weekend and a guy with a trailer full of furs and hides came and asked if I needed some.
    He sets up once a month at the Nashville Flea Market...He carries all types of hides and most of the hide colors are consistant. I managed to pull out 3 large pig hides of the same color.

    Where did you get pig skin hides from? Did you order them or pick them up from a powwow? If you ordered them where from b/c they sound like a cheap alternative to deerskins.

    Thanks for any help.

    I have 12 deer hides I have been saving for a couple of years now that I will eventually tan myself. I had planned on using them to make my dress..but in the meantime I will try and make one out of the pig hides I had gotten that where a good deal..so I guess I won't feel so bad if I where to mess up.
    At I pow wow I just held a gentleman hand made a scraper to fit my hand and gifted it to me...I guess I don't have anyother excusses on not getting started on those hides...:Angel:

    White hides are tanned hides. You do not want the dark brown, black or other colors. Hides are usually white when tanned then they are smoke to give the light brown color. These hides to breath.

    There are commercial hides and brain tanned. Brain tanned hides are white till smoked or dyed.
    Commercial hides are any color you want. Commercial hides do not generally breath.

    Missouri River makes a good one (for southern style) Depends on what style of dress too, they are made different. As far as hides goes, ive heard up to 6 hides, 3-4 for the dress itself, 2 for skirt, front and back, then if your lucky enough to find a large one in good shape you might be able to make your top out of just one, if not then you have to do front and back again, youll need at least one hide just for the fringes, depending on how long you want them..and yes, they are cut individually..takes alot of time and work, but its worth it in the end. Hope this helps ya, good luck. ;)

    Buckskin Dress

    Go to Crazy Crow for pattern...they are cheaper..thats where I got mine.
    And it takes 3 good size hides.....
    Someone told me to use pig hide because it breathes better..so that is what I am about to start cutting mine out of.

    Good luck on making yours.I know I need luck on mine:D
