    I looked back and your regalia is even more beautiful than mine. You did a fantastic job... as for the colors, great minds think alike.

    My favorite colors to wear are red, green, and black.
    Our shirts are even pretty close in pattern.

    Waleli, wado. My daughter and I added some edge beading to our regalia similar to this. Now we are inspired to add more ribbon work. This is beautiful!!

    Amount of Fabric Needed

    Siyo Steelemagnolia63,

    Sorry, can't tell you how many yards needed for the matchcoat. I bought 6 yards for both the skirt and the matchcoat. I ended up having some left over. This is always how I buy fabric so if I make a mistake I still have more to correct it. I hope this helps.

    I would use same amount of fabric as would go into a shawl - about 2 yards . If that is too much for you , then shorten it some .

    I am making this and a Eastern Woodlands caped blouse in the next few weeks. I think that this is going to turn out way better than my tear dress that is still in various stages of dis-assembly in my scrap box.....My hubby is Lenape so the eastern is a bow toward him and his people, and I can't wait to dance in a traditional style Cherokee dress. I will make it out of cotton since I am allergic to wool...

    Ladies your do look wonderful.... makes me all proud to see how talented we are!!!!!

    Very interesting reading this topic on Cherokee clothing ! My mom used to make and wear the tear dresses . I prefer the look of the older style wrap-around skirt with the blouse - just "easier" style of clothing to make ( for me anyway , my mom was expert seamstress and it's alot of work to make a tear dress ...all those gathers ! ) .

    I am from the North East and made my regalia last year. I had no idea the EBCI had adopted the new dress. I had seen it up there on the rez. Glad cuz them tear dresses are not very attractive- makes me look dumpy. I'm not Cherokee, so I wouldn't wear it. I just researched what was traditional for the Algonquin/ Abenaki and made this myself. I sew ribbon shirts and dresses, so it was pretty easy. You don't really need a pattern. <table style="width:auto;"><tr><td><a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/GJ_6kiIUTeRBqYcpCXn_9g?authkey=QEHjT1JdDlI&feat=em bedwebsite"><img src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_R85DfVhels0/SWZcp3T5LvI/AAAAAAAAAYs/YXGv5s80vig/s144/IMG_2407.JPG" /></a></td></tr><tr><td style="font-family:arial,sans-serif; font-size:11px; text-align:right">From <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/Spiderbear59/PowWow2008Crossville?authkey=QEHjT1JdDlI&feat=embe dwebsite">pow wow 2008 crossville</a></td></tr></table>

    I would like a dancing outfit for my 14 month old son.
    by ReneeWCase
    I would like a dancing outfit for my 14 month old son. I saw one for sale for an 18 month old, but it was $250. I can't really afford that and am wondering if anyone has any ideas for me. Perhaps I could make one out of suede fabric, but I don't actually know how.

    What components Make a Tradtional Outfit
    by scottlollar
    I'm talking about the actual pieces that make up your outfit. I was recently told that Northern Traditional Dancers were supposed to wear aprons that cover hip-to-hip. Now, I've been wearing a tradecloth apron for years that doesn't cover hip-to-hip. And I've had a few boys ask me pointers on dancing...

    Sell your outfit?
    by WhoMe
    Some outfits have been handed down from a family member. Others have been value beyond dollars because of personal reasons. Others like mine, have been specifically made for the dancer.


    What would you do if a collector, museum or powwow dancer offered to buy your outfit?
