    I asked some relatives of mine about a Cheyenne wedding dress. They didn't know what I was talking about?


    Is there such a thing? Are there dresses made specifically for Cheyenne weddings?


    Are you Cheyenne? N or S?


    Why not commission someone to make a Cheyenne buckskin dress and use it?

    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

      ^^Ditto^^ Did you mean a buckskin dress w/ traditional Cheyenne designs? If such is correct, WhoMe is right, Northern or Southern will make a difference.

      My suggestion is to ask either family members or people w/in your community to assist in making your dress. When I got married, my momma, aunties, sisters, and gradmother all contributed to the dress. My dress contained both traditional N.Cheyenne and family designs; and I was really proud to wear it.

Is there a pattern that exists that would allow me to easily make the dress bigger/smaller in case I were to lose or gain weight?
