Currently working on a set of blanket leggings, as a trial run for a future buckskin pair as much as anything else, and was left wondering about construction. From what I've been able to glean, the seams are generally stitched, but I have seen some examples where in lieu of thread the seams are held together by ties. These examples I have found so far seem to be from the Seminole and some Plains and Southwest tribes. Is anyone aware of the tie method being used further north along the Eastern seaboard? I ask as I am in fact lazy and avoid sewing whenever possible, and wonder whether these would be vaguely acceptable for a generic Longhunter impression.
