  • Custom Made Buckskin or War Shirt

    I am looking for someone who can design and sew me a custom buckskin/deerskin or war shirt.

    I live in Oklahoma, just outside Tulsa and would like to find someone local, but am willing to work with anyone who has experience in making these shirts.

    Thank you kindly.

      Are you talking plain buckskin or beaded? I sew with buckskin all the time and can whip them up pretty fast but if you're talking beaded, then count me out cuz that takes me too long to do and I only bead for my family. :)

        Well I knows someone who makes buckskin dresses and I am sure can make a shirt,,, and I bead,, so it depends on how much beadwork you want done, :)

          Thank you Kakeeya for your reply post. We are looking for a plain buckskin war shirt.

          I've attached a picture of a Plain Palomino War Shirt - we liked this style of shirt very much.

          What are your thoughts?

          Thank you,

            Thank you Twobraidzz for your reply post.

            We are looking for a plain buckskin war shirt (photo attached). As of right now, we are unsure if we want beadwork sewn to it.

            What are your thoughts?

            Thank you,

              Hi Tracey, we're in the same canoe... I just need to learn how to sew buckskin. But I'm sure the professionals could sew a shirt 10 times better than my best effort.

                The shirt is way different than what I thought you were talking about. I thought you meant the traditional buckskin style shirt, I've made many of those, along with chaps breechcloth, etc. Good luck in finding someone to sew for you! :Angel2

                  Thank you Kakeeya for your reply.

                  I have been searching for the past 2 months for a nice traditional buckskin shirt. The two posted pictures were of war shirts I ran across and liked... I'm sure they are way out of our price range plus they are more decorated than what we are wanting.

                  I completely understand how you would not want to sew either of those shirts.

                  If it is not too much trouble and if you have one available, could you post or email us a picture of your traditional buckskin shirt??? That is, if you are still interested in possibly working with us.

                  We do appreciate your help and kindness,
                  Tracy and Crickett Bohanan, Collinsville, OK

                        With a leather punch and lace that is all you need!!!!! Go for it! trace out a shirt and leave and extra inch for the seam that you will lace shut!

                            take an existing shirt, trace it out on leather, then cut the pieces, the punch holes along edges, if sides clamp them together first so the holes match!!!! otherwise you will have a mess!!!!!
                            Now there are ways of lacing and other ways of lacing that everyone does.
                            A way I was taught was to braid three strands together and then lay that over the holes. Then with a new strand start with a knot inside of the seam. Then pull the whole lace through the both layers of the leather. Then take the braided lace and lay it over the hole, the take the lace that you are sewing with and go over the braid and back down the same hole!!!! Very important to do this. Then underneath travel to the next hole, go up, through both layers, over the top of the braid and back down the same hole again,,, next hole till you get to the end. This way you get neat and tiddy braided sides and joints. If you can see my album under my name, there is a pic of a dress that I did that way, as well as the black bag that is there too! All done with this old algonquin lacing technique.
                            All the knots are hidden inside of the project and not on top to be seen!!!!
                            Leave about half an inch after the knot so it can not undo itself.
                            Listen to my heart, not just my mouth! The most powerfull thing we can do is,,,share,,, if we don't it dies with us.

                              Buckskin?
                              by OkieTraveler
                              Hello everyone,
                              I am located in Oklahoma and I am interested in learning to work with buckskin (to make jackets, mocs, etc.) I was told that sometimes hides are sold at powwows. Does anyone know of any specific powwows in OK where I can find someone who sells buckskin? Or can anyone refer me...

                              Wonder if anyone out there would be willing to tell us about selecting the right leather for projects.... moccs...fringe...dresses..etc. and how to know how much to buy for a project. :)

                              Did I say pretty please? :Angel2

                              by VIP4life
                              I've noticed lately that some northern buckskin dresses aren't all buckskin. Most of there skirts are made of canvas or ultra suede. Now you put all that work in to it why not make the whole thing with real hides. It must make it light without the hides but still. What do you guys think?New...

                              by ndnhottie79
                              I am from the Uintah Ouray Rez but moved before grandmother had a chance to show me the rest of the regalia. She taught me how to make my T dress. Saddly I am the only one in my family that attends pow wows, dances, and does beadwork. So I am pretty much on my own here...
                              So I am wondering what...
