    I know Dominica’s National dress to be dwiyet or jip made of brightly flowered cloth, white cotton petticoat, triangular foula and madras tet kasay. Never in my years growing up did I see same colour petticoat and foula. Also the hem is supposed to be lined with white cotton. Why on earth do we want to follow Martinique? Do we want to lose our National wear too? Please let our traditional National wear remain for competition and wear the coloured petticoat any other time. Let the children go back to using the jip, this is what children used to wear when I was growing up, leave the dwiyet for the adults.

    And why a crown as the headpiece, give her a nice tete case with a winner broach sewn on the front. Is not a princess show, the head dress should be part of the national wear

    I know that creativity is part of everything but if there is a competition displaying our national wear be it jeupe or wob, then when do they allow flowered cloths to win instead of the madras. Does it mean that the madras is not the true national cloth?

      No its not, the flowered cloth is more traditional

      @ hip. Let the “dumb person” correct your spelling – Next time add another “o” to properly spell “too.” As in too grown. You smart behind.

    Not good to make them look so “grown-up” at such age.

      I agree. the ti matador show should continue with the jep and not wob. also, some of the children get too much make-up

        I was a bit confused when I saw her with the “wob” because I always thought the Ti Matador’s National Wear Segment was the ‘jip.’

      • I agree
        October 21, 2013

        I agree. If we understood the cultural and history behind the jupe and the wob we would not have the little ones in the wob.
