  • Muscogee cloth dress

    hello. i'm new... i was wondering does anyone know exactly what Creek regalia looks like. my friend's mom let me borrow hers but i was wanting to make my own. the one i wear now is red calico, a ribbon dress.

    any help would be greatly appreciated:)

    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
                  Well will wonders never cease.....

                    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.

                                You know.. I realized I don't know much about the T dress. Anyone, can you tell me a bit of the history about this dress? Where does it originate from, does it have any special representation? I always like the Tdress.. it looks comfy LOL! I'm not saying I want to go out and make one to dance in.....

                                I have 2 cherokee tear dresses made from the crazy crow pattern, but I look like a buffalo in those things :Cry.

                                I've shared an image of an Omaha Dentalium Shell Dress. I was wondering what your thoughts were on this since I normally see women from northern plains wear these kinds of dresses.

                                by laughingcrow
                                Has anyone seen a traditional two deerskin strap dress worn at any pow wows? This style of dress was common among the Cree, Ojibwe and Metis people of the Great Lakes in the past but sadly, I have never seen a contemporary version of one worn in the circle. I have heard of people wearing a cloth strap...
