  • Sister starting dancing

    My younger sister is starting to dance So. Cloth. She has her dress and shawl, and also leggings and moccs and a belt. She is making a breastplate and hairties, although I will probably end up making the hair ties. We know she still needs the fan, but what about other accessories? A beaded crown might be in the future.

    Any replies are appreciated. Thanks,

    If the fan is not feasible at this time, make a purse. It is a nice accessory to
    have no matter what. It takes less time than a fan to do. How about some barrettes til a crown is possible. A nice rosette
    to hold a feather in her hair.

      I would have to say beth is right.You can also have barratte hold a plum which looks real pretty.The purse is very easy to make I've made many with my mother. I think i still have the pattern i'll have to look. If you want to you also can order some accessories at crazy crow. Thats where i get alot of my accessories. :)

        Buckskin designs
        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,...

        Old School womens costumes vs New Order style
        by Elo Janis
        I took a number of years away from the powwow circuit while building my life and career in the white world and upon return I have noticed to some discomfort the many changes in the dress of my tribe. For women gone are the traditional old school shawls (with intricately woven fringes and heavier fabric)...
