    I suggest using the baby crib liner, top it with some canvas.... it should never ever fall apart, or be too thin or too thick....... In my opinion anyways.

    will hold pretty good, and be about a proper weight..
    NO MY EYES REALLY DONT LOOK LIKE THAT........ THATS ME AS A BRATZ DOLL ;)

      I think I would use a canvas material, too. The canvas I like to use is called Duck Cloth. You can buy it at the fabric store for about $6-$7 a yard. And I think to make a yoke you'd only need 2 yards at the extreme most.

      I couldn't imagine beading directly to the buckskin. But there are people here on the board who have done so. Selena has some very nice pictures of her regalia, which was done directly to buckskin.

      When you asked what all do you need.......were you talking about other accessories you need to make to go along with the dress???

          What kind of accessories are you talking about? Northern or Southern? That would be good info for all of us to know:)

                Well I wish you luck! It is hard work. N. Tradish beaded accessories: hairties, belt (optional), Beaded Barrette (big one), Leggings & moccs. Other items could include a beaded choker with neck piece, but thats optional. Depends on if you want to go tradish or contemp tradish.
                My dress took 1 1/2 years to complete (straight stitch).
