  • Need Help in making daughters regalia

    I have a 13 month old daughter right now. I want to make her first regalia. I have her Shawl almost done. I need to know how to make a little dress for her. Can someone help me out here?

    Thanks

    My mother sews professionally for a lot of pow wow dancers and has made regalia for dancers around the world, literally. But, I don't think she sews for such a little one. Have you tried looking at patterns for dolls, then adapting the style to what you want?

    I don't think Missouri River has a pattern this small. I hope you find what your looking for. Congratulations on your new little dancer.

      Keep you design work simple is the key. Make it a "T" style dress. Keep it one color; add ribbon for decor. For her leggings, just make a small tube design. Instead of sliding her leggings on and off, just use velcro closures. Make a cloth belt with some applique on it (to match the shawl that you've made and add velcro closure) should complete the outfit. Just think about the times when she'll be extremly hot, your tired and cranky, and you daughter just wants out of her dance regalia. Simple is better! Hope this helps you!!

          When you say "T" style dress, what do you mean. I don't sew very often and this is all new to me. I think I understand what your talking about when you talk about the leggings and the belt. I just don't understand "T" style dress.

          Thanks

            "T" style is like taking one of your t-shirts, shrinking it a bit, and putting it on your daughter. Or think about those long pajama gowns that little girls like to wear during the summer months. That is the basic concept. Go to www.littlecrowtradingpost.com and click on the "Pow Wow Regalia Photos" to give you a better idea. Look at the Womens Plains T Dresses to get an idea of the "T" dress. You just need to shrink it down to your daughter's size. If you have more questions, PM me!

              i just made a dress like this for my 18 month old niece and have a really easy way to do it--the biggest thing you have to be aware of is making sure her head can get through. anyway im me and i can email you an explanation.
              good luck.
