At last, a book devoted to women's dresses and accessories has emerged!
Covering the Northern, Central and Southern Plains, as well as the Plateau,
this comprehensive craft guide shows how to recreate both the cloth and
hide dresses of the 19th century, as well as the accessories worn with them.
Using original texts and other period souce material, the author discusses the
historical background and tribal styles in vogue from the time of Lewis and Clark
to the beginning of the reservation period.
Lavishly illustrated with drawings by Alex Koslov and many fine, full color photos
of some of the most exquisite original examples from world collections, this beautiful
volume contains a wealth of information that no Indian craftworker or living history
buff will want to be without.
