I just wanted to share the Lakota style leggings that I just completed. The leggings are of an earlier style of plains clothing. I find the earlier style plains indian clothing more interesting than the later, more tailored look. Each legging is made up of one german tanned deerhide. It's hard to distinguish it from real brain tanned leather. I did not do the beadwork but sewing it to the leggings was more than enough work in and of itself. The strips are beaded in a classic Lakota style. Attached to the top of each beaded strip I attached two red ochered ermine hides. The first picture is earlier in the construction phase before I added the fringe and sewed the beaded strips on. The last two are of the completed leggings. I am glad to get these done because they took a lot of work and I have more projects to finish, even ones I started before these.
