    I would love to be able to make my own dress, and I commend you for wanting to learn. I've seen some patterns on how it's done, and I would not mind trying, but I would want some practice first. My daughter will be 1 year old at the end of the month. What I would like to do is make her a buckskin dress. I know it's easier to do when you're making a very small dress, so I suppose this is a good time as any to learn how to make a dress, but I am hesitant about cutting out the pieces for it. I wouldn't be able to tan or anything, so I would have to look for people who could tan and prepare it for sewing. Any suggestions?

    Good luck, Cherokeemom!

        I use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to make my designs. It's great because I just design it then lay the material on the screen and trace it lightly. Of course it only works if you bead on something semi-translucent. I use interfacing so it works nicely. I have access to a clipart library so I use that clipart to do my basic designs.

        If anyone out there needs designs, I would be happy to create them on the computer and e-mail the images to you.

        As far as ebay goes, if you do a search for native american dance outfits, regalia, native american dress, buckskin dress, native american beaded, etc. you can find lots of stuff but you have to be careful. Sometimes you can find really good deals. I bought my little girl a buckskin dress with leggings for $20. And I found a tear dress that couldn't have been made to fit me any better for $35.

            Finished my earrings

            Yay! I got my earrings done and am working on my other hair tie. Not the best I've done, but they're alright. Maybe by the time I actually get my hides, I'll have the beadwork done.

              Tell me about it! I can't draw worth anything. It kills me because my uncle can do beautiful paintings like these.

                  If you send me a link to it and kind of tell me what you want, I'd be happy to do some designs for you. I can do individual piece designs (hair ties, etc.) or just do a few basic designs that you can work into pieces.
