Description

I made this from a long skirt I got at a secondhand store. The print is dreamcatchers, wolves/coyotes silhouette, and Native Americans riding on horses. Since I’m part Cherokee , I call it my Cherokee dress, although I really couldn’t say what tribe is represented on the dress or if any really is represented. I wore it to see my favorite artist ever, Tori Amos, in concert.

Material Notes

cotton-poly blend, I suspect

    Just thought you would like to know that as I came across this creation, my two-year-old sister gasped and said “Princess!!” when she saw your picture. She’s right, this dress is stunning on you, you look fantastic! :] Great job!
