It's pretty much like a Cherokee tear dress.

Yes, there are not as many gathers in the material, so it's a little less ruffly. And they also usually wear an apron, kinda like the Choctaw dresses. What size do you wear? I have a Creek-style cloth dress that I might be willing to sell.

Yuchi (Euchee) dress

Below is a picture of a Yuchi dress from the Gilcrease Museum. It should be very similar to a Muscogee dress. This particular dress was made by my great-aunt Julia Winningham.

you know looking at these pictures and having tear dresses myself and seeing other southern(SE) tribal dresses makes one wonder why they are all similar but reflects each tribes differences....

jsut a thought out there

I'll take pics of the dress I have available and post on here this week sometime. I'm not sure exactly what size it is, but will get the measurements.

Ok, so it's taken me a heck of a long time to get the pics up of the dress I have for sale. Anyway, it's currently on eBay, take a look:

It's more of a sky blue - the top of the dress (it's one-piece) is blue, the sleeves are white with blue ribbon trim, and the skirt is white with blue ribbon trim. The shawl is also blue, with white ribbons for the fringe.

I didn't realize how close the Muskcogee dress is to the Chatah and Chikasha. but then of course, we speak their language. I've never seen the Creek dress because so few of us Southeastern women wear the stomp dress. So maybe this helps:
This is my little one's dress. She still needs her beaded collar but I'll wait until she gets over the pulling stage.

Your daughters dress is really nice!!! What a cuteee!!

You mentioned you hadn't made her the net necklace......I've been wanting to make one for my new dress. I have an old necklace but its not as long as some of the ones ladies wear now (not sure that "long" is the right word....from the neck to the edge of the necklace...maybe that describes it better). My old one is only 2 1/2 inches.....I've seen them wear they are closer to 5-6 inches.....hope this makes sense!!!. Plus that necklace is getting kind of old and delicate and I'm afraid to wear it.
ANYWAY......do you have some directions on how to make the web necklace? Anybody that could help....I would appreciate it.

I've enjoyed hearing the discussion on the Muscogee women's dress. Not a lot of ladies dress in the Creek dress......so it's great to hear your feedback.
See you later,
Nancy Jo

I know exactly what you mean. I'm real careful about mine. Partly because I didn't make it. A lady in Ada, OK made mine for me and she's does really good work too. I want a wider/longer one too. Mine stops right at the ruffle on my yoke. I've seen Choctaw women with collars that drape way below the yoke though.

Thanks for the compliment on Miss Thing too.

I like the wider/longer ones......they look really nice.
I got some tubular beads that are royal blue and have kind of an iradescent sheen to them and I would like to make them up in the collar necklace. Just not real sure how to do it.
The one I have now was given to me by an aunt (that has since passed away). No one else is sure how to make the necklace.

One of these days I'll just have to try and figure it out.....but if anyone has any instructions....I would love to learn.

Where are you in Texas? If you want I could email the collar maker in Ada and exchange info. She usually teaches a class on collar and stomp dress making.
