This dress was beaded using pony beads in a mid-nineteenth century style. The drops on this dress are also elk teeth and very valuable trade beads. It also took a additional 3 antelope hides just to make the thin, thick fringe on the bottom and sides. I also retained the tails and hair on the ends of the legs for fringe like the original ones.
I originally made this dress for a traveling museum exhibit. And I kept this one, and wear it from time to time.
My hopes are soon to start making another one. A girls got to have new clothes :-)
