Adopted as the official dress of the Western Cherokee's over 30 years
ago. We are pleased to offer these dresses designed as taught 20 years
ago. These old style Cherokee Tear Dresses have one-piece set-in waist,
¾ length sleeves, white rick-rack and white band of diamonds. Our
dresses are made the traditional way tearing squares and rectangles to
complete the design. Each dress has heavy-duty "hidden" snaps instead
of buttons all the way down the front to replicate the look of "no buttons".
All seams are surged and finished to prevent fabric raveling. Originally the
dresses were worn right above the ankle, but we will be happy to shorten
if you prefer.
