Reg Input to curl from tar command compressed output

Hi ,
I need a clarification on sharing input to curl using pipe.

I want to share the output of tar compressed image to curl as an input
using pipe.
Commands i tried to pipe :
1)tar --create --file=- --directory=/dir1 ./ | gzip > gzipimage.tar.gz
2)curl -v -T gzipimage.tar-gz tftp://

I have tried the following. But unsuccessful.

tar --create --file=- --directory=/dir1 ./ | gzip > - | curl -v -d
"@-" -T gzipimage.tar.gz tftp:// > gzipimage.tar.gz

My intention is to avoid creating the intermediate compressed image (
gzipimage.tar.gz ) while uploading the compressed file using curl.
