  • shawls and dresses

    i have a few diferent dresses and shawls that all go together. I was just wondering if it would be okay to rotate a shawl or dress so that I was wearing a different one during competition at a powwow?:)

    As long as your colors coordinate, I dont see any reason you cant mix and match pieces. You might also try different color scarves to make them look different.

      most cloth dancers i know change for day and night dancing.
      Like I'll wear a certain one for a day dance and a different dress for night.
      I have no idea if that helps.
      Well will wonders never cease.....

        by cherokeemom06
        I have a couple of cloth dresses and have finally decided to put the time, effort and money into my first buckskin dress. I tried to buy one (don't yell at me, I have two small kids and finding time to cut all that fringe was a bit daunting! ) but everytime I almost made a deal with someone,...
