  • Just of Curiosity

    I was wondering, what is seen along the powwow trail, in regards to ladie's fancy shawl.

    Is there more ribbon fringe, then chainette?
    How do you make a yoke?
    What is a "complete set" of women's fancy?
    Is there a good source of video's that teach basic steps?
    Suggestions for sewing your regalia?

    Aiyeee:p

    Anything and everything!

    I know I am asking alot, but heck, just wanted to check it out for curiosity's sake:)

    I see more ribbon fringe now. The way I make my yokes is take some newspaper and cut out a pattern for what you want to make, then cut and sew the fabric. A complete set is a shawl, a skirt/dress, leggings, ankle moccs, a yoke, attatched to a vest or a harness, and the shawl. Hairties are optional. There are several videos out there, but the best thing is to go and watch the other dancers at powwows. But, videos, Gathering of Nations videos are good, and other powwow vids.

      Is there more ribbon fringe, then chainette?
      i see more ribbon fringe, but i really appreciate it when i see chainette. i know the work that goes into tying the chainette. LOL

      How do you make a yoke?
      i draw it on a paper bag, and then cut it out, and sew it... if done properly it should be beaded but i don't have the time for that just now.

      What is a "complete set" of women's fancy?
      moccasins. leggings.
      a dress, or shirt and skirt.
      a belt and cape or a yoke and harness/vest.
      shawl.
      a scarf around the neck, and / or a choker
      hairties and barrettes, and probably a plume.

      and although you don't see it all the time, a good pair of spandex bike shorts.

      Suggestions for sewing your regalia?
      pins, an iron, planning, measure twice and cut once, be careful! and do your BEST work! and BIAS TAPE! lol
