    New sheath for my wife

    I made this buckskin dress for my wife for valentines day. Just finished it yesterday, whew, 100 hair pipe, 250 glass beads, 30 miles of fringe and one great big smile and the fit couldn't get any better.

    Hope you like it

    Wasn't the wife supposed to model the dress?

    You did a real good job. A lot of time goes into a piece like that. Fringe and beads a lot of time.

    Are you into buckskinning or powwows? I do a lot of that kind of work.

    Thanks all, pic's updated with the lovely model

    We don't attend events unless they are nearby and we are both off work but, we don't go in costume. I do enjoy making period pieces, this is my first article of clothing.

    The tassels are white rabbit fur

    That's madness! You don't really get how complex it is until you see her wearing it. Did you hand sew it? Very cool. Pretty wife with a great smile too!

    The only parts that were hand sewn are the fringe to the sleeve and laced around the neck plus all the fixtures otherwise the skins were put together on my old treadle singer patcher. With that, it still took me a week and a half, about 45 hours.

    That smile is why I take a break from knife making and get myself involved in these sort of projects

    Making her smile like that is well worth all you put into the dress.

    I danced in powwows for years until I got too old and I've been a member of a buckskinner club for most of my life.

    This dress would be worn in the "Ladies Buckskin" category at Powwow. "O s' da di'galv' wi s'da Ugi'nali' " (Good Work Friend)
