Tipis,

Sorry I did not see your post earlier. I based the dress off of the Nez Perce pattern shown in the book: 19th Century Plains Indian Dresses by Susan Jennys. I wanted something that would be appropriate for the late 1830's or early 1840's and made from materials traded at Rendezvous or a fur post. The fully developed sleeve Crow dresses are more 1850's. I wanted something simple that would represent a transition from hide to cloth dresses. It is a very basic pattern: A large rectangle piece for the front and another for the back. Then triangle side gussets and the tapered wings/sleeves. The sleeves are not sewn on the bottom, so they hang open and drape like the hide dresses.

Check out the Women of the Fur Trade website for some more excellent interpretations of trade cloth dresses.
