Have you read the info articles about original frontier buckskin clothing and how I make mine?

If ordering buckskin clothing or rifle cases also send appropriate section(s) of the Measurements Form.

About Modern Ceremonial/Dance Dresses:  There is much less physical movement in women's traditional dances than in men's.  Very long fringe is often added to dance dresses today to create the illusion of increased movement.  About 24" to 30" long (61 to 75cm), depending on your height,

People are much more conscious today of their figures than ever before.  Modern buckskin dresses are often made without fringe down the sides, since side fringe gives the appearance of extra "bulk" to the hips than most women care to have.

Though they are modern, I still do NOT lace or machine sew buckskin clothing.  It would be an insult to native ancestors if I made cheapened "look-alikes" just to make a buck.  My buckskin dance dresses are made with the same quality and smaller, authentic stitches as my historic clothing.

Yokes are cut to traditional styles of the western regions. Hides are more tailored to eliminate "bulk".  Total length is a couple inches below the knees, plus about 5" (12.5 cm) fringe cut all around the bottoms.  A few more dangles than on "Late Style" dresses are added on both front and back.

Note:  Sample buckskin colors may vary slightly depending on your browser.  But then, colors vary slightly anyway between batches of buckskin during the smoking or dyeing processes.
