  • T-Dress Question

    I have the Missouri River cloth dress pattern and in my infinate wisdom thought it would be a good idea to cut the little section off with the fabric with and length requirements off and keep it in my wallet so when I went fabric shopping I would always have it. So you may have guessed but I lost it... Could any body out there let me know what it is? Thanks... Don't laugh too much please!

              t-dress?


              I have a question I am trying to find out, this t-dress I hope everyone is knowing the orignal T-Dress is not the same as the southern tear dress. Northern tribes have a t-dress that it is shaped just like a big "T" simple tradinal pattern. It sounds as though you have adapted this T-dress to fit short for tear dress.??? Are Northern people understanding this is not the same? So when I and my grandmothers speak of "T" dress this is just that. Some people are confussing others.

                ??? What is the real question? A T Dress is exactly that, a dress shaped like a T .... a Tear dress is exactly that! A dress TORN into squares then kinda gathered and sewn together to make the Tear (as in rip) Dress. NOT a shortened or adapted version of the T Dress which takes a whole lot less fabric. The Tear Dress is longer than the T dress which needs leggings to be worn under the skirt. The Tear Dress is supposed to be long enough not to need leggings!

                Hope that answers your question.

                    AAHHHH I see, said the Blind man ...... it might be that your friends are a bit on the confused side, or someone told them wrong. I know many people who would do that on purpose just so they can turn around and laugh at them later!
