Missouri River's Indian Woman's Accessories pattern consists of several patterns with illustrated instructions. Northern and Southern belt sets (strike-a-light, awl and knife cases), mirror bag, large knife sheath, Northern Plains leggings, medicine pouch and buckskin purse are all featured.
Ladies' outfits require a number of accessories in order to make them authentic and historically accurate. Because Indian dresses were very simple and usually contained no pockets, articles such as purses, knife sheaths, strike-a-light bags, awl cases, mirror pouches, and other bags were necessary in order to keep up with the various tools and materials required for everyday living in the wilderness. Sketches and paintings from the period show that these accessories were used on the Northern and Southern Plains alike
