My Homemade Tiger Lily Indian Princess Costume is made entirely out of brown paper bags. They were cut into strips and sown together with hemp to make the skirt. The vest was made by turning a bag upside down and cutting arm holes and then trimming it down to size.
The front of the vest is held together by a “breastplate” made of swirls of hemp. It was attached by toggles made from sticks. I also made a bow out of a stick with a piece of hemp strung from end to end and a feather attached to the top. I then added feathers all over the costume.
