I am working on a Jingle Dress for my daughter for Pow Wow in November. She chose the theme of Fire and Birds. I found this great choker that the whole dress is based around. Its a 2 part dress: The under dress which is a ribbon dress, and the overdress which will have all the fancy stuff and jingle cones.
This is the BASIC under dress with no embellishment
This is the choker and the armbands which I made.
And above is the embellishment for the sleeves. Until I make the over dress, the under dress is a ribbon dress. Once the over dress is done, it will be VERY fancy. I still have to make her a shawl, but I honestly dont think she will use it.
There are several other dancers who have met her before that want to take her under their wings and show her how to dance. Apparently all that Irish Dance training she has shows lol
