Traditional Dress - Revised Edition
Knowledge & Methods of Old-Time Clothing
An excellent introduction to old-style clothing. Describes materials, tools, sewing methods, and includes patterns for moccasins, dresses, shirts, a capote, vests, leggings, breastplates, and more. Illustrated with drawings and numerous old photographs. The photographs alone justify adding this book to your library. Over 50 vintage photographs show the diversity of styles worn by Native People of various regions – from formal ceremonial regalia to everyday combinations of Native and western pioneer garments. Most of the items described here are accompanied by illustrated instructions for recreating authentic apparel at home.
This revised edition is substantially larger than the original. This has been one of our best sellers for many years!
