    I seen one in the shape of a cape, you know the kind the fancy shawl dancers use. Well it was shaped like that in the front and back, beaded and everything, it was nice!

    Osiyo supergirlie_fancy1!! That would be awesome. A friend told me since this is the first dress I ever made.....well first of any clothing i made that I should make a practice one out of cheap matieral so that i don't waiste and ofthe good material. Then I could use that for my pattern which makes alot of since to me.

    Once I do this Then I will go and buy the things I need. there is a place here that sells the rolled cones which is a good thing for me.
    You said you live a half an hour away thats not to far at all. Do you live north or south of us? I have a friend in Cloque that her niece helped teach my daughter how to jinge some. I have to say she was very scared but after a while she was going for it. Right now she only knows a basic step. I am trying to teach her to go with the beat of the drum. he he she is stuck on a fast beat. I have her practice jumping up and down so her leggs get some strength in them....what do you think of this and do you think it will will work? Do you have any other ideas that will strengthen her leggs. WE have a Little Otter tape that we got from a pow wow on the Milli lac Rez. I love it I go to sleep listening to this.
    Well let me know. Wado, Wally

    Siyo supergirlie_fancy1 Wado for that. I never had the chance to learn my culture until now so I am trying to be sure she knows as much as she can, plus she said she wanted to be a jingle dancer. So since I am the one that sews I am the one that will do it. Plus I have a strong desire to do this for her. I have a little fear that I will mess it up, but I know that Creator is with me. So this will be a great path for me to take with my daughter.
    Wado/ Miigwetch/Thank you. smile, Wally

    You should make a yoke. .... use duck cloth- sew the edges first so they dont fray...and then draw a design on it and bead away.. after you can use edgework to sew on a lining!!you could make a simple yoke that is a circular shape....or a v-shape..its really easy

    My daughter is 8 yrs old, and very small for her age. I call her tinker bell because she is so tiny. But she is full of fire. I will putthe beading on the yoke which I think is a good idea. Wado for all the help. I think I will make her a beaded vest. Thiswill look awesome I think. This is going to be her very first Dress and she can't wait. What am I saying....I can't wait. lol

    I also think that the yoke style or the vest style is the best way to go if you want to add beadwork to the dress. If you add it right to the dress itself, its going to present a problem when you need to clean the dress, it makes it a lot more fragile, and that is the last thing you want if you have a little one wearing the dress. That way, you can use the beadwork for a while, and just make new dresses to go underneath if your child grows out of a dress. Anyways, thats just my 2 cents. Let us see some pictures when you finish :)

    Yeah go nuts! if you like beading then you might want to have a commitment to your yoke to bead it... It would look beautiful and you better share some pics of it when you are done!!!!!!

    and a suggestion to millsdrumming, since you are doing for best, i think that beadwork that is universal, so you can use it on more then one dress in the future, is a good idea. i think it saves time and effort. Also, that is so nice of you to help your daughter! how old is she?

    I finally finished my first fully beaded yoke dress! It took me so long because I was constantly putting it aside to work on stuff for other people. Also, I dance Jingle most of the time so I wasn't in any particular hurry for a Traditional dress.

    Dentalium Shell Dress
    by Segnewe


    I've shared an image of an Omaha Dentalium Shell Dress. I was wondering what your thoughts were on this since I normally see women from northern plains wear these kinds of dresses.
