    Well, I'm glad to hear it. Hopefully one day we'll be at the same powwow and I'll get to see it. I've been busy my self with a new outfit and some beadwork. Hope the rest of the outfit turns out just as well.

    There called drops, if she is beading then she needs to go to Wal-mart or somewhere that sells baby stuff and get some crib sheeting also called water proof padding, do your beading on that and then back it with leather, to attach it to your hair you can put a barrettes on the back. You can buy packs with nothing on them from craft stores. Way don't you email with your email address and then I will email you back and give you my phone # that will make it easier for us.

    As far as the barrette goes you can buy them out powwows or if you know some one that beads you could get them to make it. Now for them plums there are a few different things you can use. If you have a metal coat hanger, you can cut a piece of it to the lenght you want bend one end into a circle, take some sinew and tie the plums to the striaght end of the hanger. MAKE SURE IT'S TIGHT... TO MAKE SURE IT WILL HOLD YOU CAN SHAKE IT AROUND THE SAME WAY THE WIND WOULD TO SEE IF IT WILL HOLD. After that you can sew the hanger to the back side of the barrette so that it want fall out. That is the worst thing that can happen. You can also use a chopstick, or a dowrod, they make them small enough aroud to work. There are some websites you can go to for beadwork if you need to buy a good one is KQdesigns.com, and there are some on the links on powwows.com.

    If your Aunt sews than you will be able to figure it out. You can get alot of great skirt patterns, and if she good she can turn that into a dress. Alot of girls wear dresses with a yoke, but you can do the skirt & shirt, its up to you. Buying regalias is pretty pricy ($250-$500). I website you can look at to buy one is nativeamericandanceoutfit.com. Good luck you have my email if you need advice.

    Thanks for the help. I might attempt to make my own, with the help of an aunt who sews, but if I turn out to stink at it, I will need someone to make it for me, so I'll be looking around...

    Yeah just be sure to get something that isn't too heavy or thin and won't WRINKLE easily! When you go to the fabric store, grab a little handful of the fabric and scrunch it up- if it looks wrinkly, don't get it, unless you like bringing an iron to the powwow :) Silk essence is a good fabric that's lightweight and colorful...but pretty much anything that isn't too heavy or too thin, which would rip from the weight of the ribbon.

    Outfit pattern
    by appleprincess
    I am back for those of you who used to tease me when I used "Ahpi Shikopa". No, my name hasn't changed, but I decided that if you were going to tease me with "Autumn Apple Princess," I might as well use the name. No hard feelings to anyone anymore.

    Anyway, for those...
