          I don't think I have ever seen northern women wearing cuffs.. that does'nt mean that they don't... but other than Jingle dancers, I have'nt seen any myself....Oh, and iroquois women sometimes wear cuffs of velvet that are beaded....

              Finally! I can help someone instead of just asking questions, yay!

              MissTlingit, you can cut out whatever style of cuff fits your wrist. I like the ones with th "point" that comes over the top of the hand, but you have to make sure it is very flexible or it will poke your hand! But it is a pretty style.

              The jingle dancers up here like to wear these and I have seen dozens and dozens of styles around the Dakotas. Basically, just figure out how you want your cuff to look, you can try out several different styles by making paper patterns first. I am doing exactly that later this afternoon!

              The designs are usually personal, though. You can find examples of Northern Plains beadwork designs by just doing a search on the internet under "Northern Plains beadwork designs" etc... There are some good books out there, too, I have seen several books that have pretty detailed traditional designs.

              But I wouldnt use them just like they are in a book or website, because it is probebly someone elses dream or power in it, you want your own. So use them for guidlines is all.

                Cool! I will have to "dink" around with that until I finally get the right one I want I guess :D

                  Patterns for Overdress and Iroquois style skirt
                  by ginabgood1
                  Does anyone know where I can get a pattern to make an Iroquois style overdress and wrap skirt? I have one wrap skirt that I purchased ready made at a pow wow and added my own beadwork to it, but it's getting pretty worn. I don't want to cut it apart to make a pattern from it if I can avoid it. ...

                  Womens Breastplates
                  by dancin_booger
                  What are the proper types of breastplates for Northern and Southern Traditional Dancers? Do the bone always run vertical or would it be proper to run them horizontally?
