    I would suggest making a new dress, maybe recycle your jingles and put em on a newer one, that way it will look probably better then if you just added new fabric onto older fabric if you know what I mean ;)

    Either that or if you really wanted to keep your dress /... for the hips part you gotta open up the seams at the sides so that when you put on the other part i looks as though its a part of the dress, and for cuffs if theres some on there take em off and add the new ones, Im kinda lazy to type today, lol... sorry if Im no help :(

    Some guys are good with their drum sticks.... and some just arent...:karate:

      I've put a whole new bottom to my skirt before. Boy was it a pain in the A$$. I cut the whole bottom off and ironed on the skirt with the top. My dress has about a month worth of applique. It took me three months to sew. I was able to do that cause the top has no cones , just applicque. It turned out ok. It just depends on what kind of shape the dress is in. I would just make a new one myself. I believe in recycaling the cones too. Pm me if you have anyother questions. I sew a lot too.:Angel: Good luck

        Storing Your Buckskin
        by Dancin' Fool
        How do you store your buckskin dress? I've heard some people wrap them in sheets and fold them, and others hang them up. I just had one made for my daughter and need some advice before I do something I may regret.
