** The companies that sold flour and feed realized this and started to produce flour and feed sacks in bright, cheerful patterns. They reasoned that the more attractive their feed sack cotton, the more likely a woman would be to purchase it over an un-decorated competitor when she took into account the clothes she could make from the fabric.
** This trend continued into the 1940's, when good-quality fabric for clothing was rationed due to UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. Sewing companies even produced patterns that took into account the narrower fabric width & pre-existing seams women had to work with when repurposing flour sack fabric.

* Due to the economic hardships of TheGreatDepression, some women actually resort on making clothes out of sacks of flour or feeds, hence they were called "feedsack dresses".

* In ''Literature/{{Neogicia}}'', the protagonist has to take advantage of a MercyLead to escape from a castle that is in a ''very'' cold place, and the NoMisterBondIExpectYouToDine treatment she got from her captor resulted in her getting only ''interior'' clothing. She eventually gets the idea to wrap herself in a curtain, break a window, and rely on acrobatics on the castle's exterior ornaments to avoid pursuit. Once she's outside, she has to arrange an improvised cloak out of the curtain and a non-essential belt to avoid getting too cold.
