Friday Photo: Elk-tooth Dresses

Happy Friday! Our celebration of Women's History Month ends today, but remember that you can look back any time at the posts labeled "women."

From Montana Views. Original in Montana Historical Society Photograph Archives, ST 001.338
These young Crow women modeled their elk-tooth dresses circa 1906-1908. Elk-tooth dresses may be embellished with hundreds of teeth and are treasured by their owners. The photo was taken by N. A. Forsyth.

P.S. On the topic of fashion history, remember this fancy outfit? Or these bathing costumes?
