    "We Walk in Two Worlds"

    I'm making a new regalia for myself (a dentalium shell dress), my 10 yr old is getting mostly new regalia, but using same apron and bustle (he dances tradish) and my baby is getting his first regalia. Thats what I'm working on for family. 2 of my friends daughters are getting new fancy shawl regalia and my other friends daughter is getting traditional regalia (Innuit style)

      I am working on my back trailer type thing, some people call it a train. Not quite sure but it will be fully beaded with a floral design to match the rest of my beadwork. I also have started a set of beadwork for my sons girlfriend and I have to finish edging a small set for my friends daughter.

        almost done with my new lazy stitch set I've been doing off and on passed 2 years, then another floral outfit by the 4t of july hopefully.

        Other than that, been doing a lot of featherwork and fans.

          I made a Eastern Woodlands Turkey Beard Roach, a Eastern Woodlands Porky Roach, a featherd scalplock, a neck knife and sheath. My wife made me 2 new sets of eastern woodlands center seam leggings with breech cloths and a Revoltionary War Brittish Loyalist frock trophy coat. We are in the mad rush to get all our regalia finished before our first pow wow this year which is in less than a month. We got all the big projects done just finishing up the little extras that make it all come together.

                  glad it's almost half over.... makes me work twice as hard for slacking off the first few months of winter.

                    I know that I am running out of time... Our first event is March 7th.... and since Feb has only 28 days, that makes my time even shorter....

                        Ya'll gonna post some of your projects? I'm working on bead orders and trying to get my beadwork done for my new outfit. LOL I haven't officially danced for alot of years so I'm not in a hurry to get mine done.
                        I am finishing up a beaded roach spreader for my youngest and then will start a harness for my oldest. Kids sure keep you busy don't they.
                        Powwow is next weekend and I'm trying to get the youngest fixed up for that. I will have everything done except his mocassins. Whew!!! I am so excited though cuz I miss pws.

                          Here is Jim's coat, leggings and Eastern Woodlands breech cloth that I just finished( put the last touches on it today).... I have got to get him a shirt made. I just finished washing the material for that so after I get my repairs done on my buckskins (I am taking them in), I'll zip that shirt up...
                          Soon as I get the ribbon on the leggings I'll post a shot of my new Eastern Woodlands....

                            Finished the ribbon on the leggings this morning... lol.... finshed the repairs on the buckskins... now it's on to Jim's shirt for the frock coat and my Traditional Cherokee.... oh and the repair of a pair of mocs, that I havebeen putting off since last year....

                            Here is a picture of the finished eastern style. I think that it makes me look like a line backer with all the ruffles around my chest and shoulders....

                                by ojibwaysweetie
                                I know for many of us, the fall and winter times are times for planning, creating and designing new dresses and beadwork. Is anyone planning any different designs, or sticking to your own unique style, or anyone going old style, going contemp? What are your plans for the long cold season ahead of us...

                                This is my first post after "lurking" for some time now. Anyway, thought I'd start off with a question.

                                Getting back into dancing after nearly a 20 year absense. No real "connections" here where I now live, so I have been "out of touch" for a while. Anway,...

                                Hello everyone. I am posting this primarily for insight because I am new to the art of fancy feather dancing. I have danced the style for a long time, but I do not own the proper regalia. As a matter of fact, I don't own any. That being said, I would like to know, based on the experience of other...
