    So come on ladies.. how about being a little more discreet. ;) :Angel2

    ICK! I agree. I know that alot of dancers make their outfits like that ( I'm one of them) because it saves material and $! BUT if your gonna do it that way PUH-LEEZE make a underskirt that you can wear under all your dresses. C'mon do it for us! Ayyee!

      hmmmm.... I don't like showing too much (yall know what i mean). I think if I wore a dress w/o an underskirt and/or tights I'd have a blanket or somethin to cover up when I'm sittin down. Then again, that's just me.
      SHAKE IT!!!!

                Help with Jingle dress outfit

                Excuse me if I must ask. But I have a question in making a jingle dress outfit. Its for my little girl. The question is do I have put the design and jingle cones on before I sew the dress together or what? Do I have to sew the dress together then do the design and the cones. A little bit confused. It maybe a dumb question but not afraid to ask for help.

                  well its easier to first buy rolled cones and make sure theirs enough opening by useing an awl right through the jingle...the string bias tape through the jingle and crimp it.... then after cutting out the pattern (useing cotton/poly material) before any sewing or basteing pin the ribbon on according to the design you would like(ex:rick rack, straight,) and sew the top part of the grow grain ribbon with a sewing machine (only top part first)..
                  then take the jingle/bias tape and place underneath the sewed ribbon about 1/8 inch or enough so that the jingle wont fall out but enough to show over an inch or bias tape...and machine sew each part of bottom part of ribbon/jingle..... then when your done with all the jingles/ribbon machine sew the dress together.... by the way if you have lighter material then you need to double it or use this binding so that the dress wont tear ....

                    What about those jingle dress dancers who unzip their dresses and let them drop on the ground to step out of them. These are the dancers who wear t-shirts and bike shorts under their dresses, they don't even find a tent or something to change in.

                    I was taught to respect my dress and never let it touch the ground.
                    I have seen too many dancers drop their dresses on the ground and I shudder at the sight.

                      really? wow. I lay down a blanket, step on it, then take my dress off. I don't even like my dress to touch the floor, let alone the ground.
                      SHAKE IT!!!!

                                Boozhoo Everyone!!!! I have a question that I would like some HONEST opinion on. I am getting married soon to a Kiowa man. In the past few weeks, we have been discussing our wedding. One of the things that have come up was what we are going to wear(we are very simple people....not into the whole 10,000...

                                I've been told it's only proper to have an underskirt underneath your dress. Lately shorts or spandex are the common thing to wear underneath.. do yall think this is something that is approporiate?

                                Hello all!

                                I am trying to decide between long or short sleeves on a dress with extensive applique work on the torso, I mean extensive! I know the long sleeves are more traditional, but I see so many young girls with the short sleeves in summer.

                                My daughters other dress...

                                Rights to Jingle?

                                If someone makes and sells a jingle dress, are they also giving the right for the buyer - to wear and dance in that dress?

                                If you buy a jingle dress, do you automatically have the right to jingle dress dance?

                                What if the dress maker is not Anishinabe Kwe?
