The Native American Indian princess costume is a good one for both women and girls. To make a Native American Indian princess costume, find a long skirt and long-sleeved blouse in brown polyester microsuede. Find some microsuede fringe in a matching or complementary color. Sew or hot glue the fringe on to the end of the sleeves and neckline of the blouse and the end of the skirt. Get some microsuede boots or moccasins to match your skirt and blouse. If you like, you can also sew or hot glue a decorative beaded or woven trim onto the Native American Indian princess costume. If you would like more decorative designs, use iron-on transfers or fabric paints that are safe for microsuede. Find some beaded jewelry, a leather headband and some colorful feathers. Attach the feathers to the headband. If your hair isn’t long and dark, wear a wig.
For a sexy Native American Indian princess, wear a shorter brown microsuede dress with spaghetti straps, short sleeves or no sleeves. Apply fringe to the neckline and the hem of the skirt. Wear high-heeled brown lace-up sandals or boots. Wear some sexy turquoise or beaded Native American Indian jewelry and a beaded headband with a feather.

One way to make a Native American squaw costume is to make a long-sleeved, long-skirted Native American Indian costume like the princess costume, and add a papoose to strap on your back.

To make a plus size Native American Indian squaw costume, pick costume pieces to accentuate your best features. If you have problems with your tummy but have great legs, choose costume clothing with a loose waist and a short skirt. If your legs are heavy but your waist is relatively trim, belt the Native American squaw costume and wear a longer skirt. If your arms are toned, go with short sleeves or no sleeves. If your arms are a problem area, wear longer sleeves with plenty of fringe. Add lots of accessories such as beaded Native American Indian jewelry, feathers, thigh-high high-heeled boots, faux fur boot covers, hair ornaments or a headband with feathers.
