Are the Amish restricted to certain colors when making their dresses. No pastels? Are there restrictions on length, and do the patterns differ in style from one Amish family to another? ~Caroline Hatley
Each community has its own set of rules on what colors are and aren’t acceptable for dresses. They also have rules on how short a dress is allowed to be. The patterns don’t vary from family to family. Instead they vary from community to community.
