  • Ladies: Help with identifying a type of modest dress?

    First, thank you for reading this.

    About ten years ago, I was given a very beautiful garment. The person who gave it to me said it was a type of modest dress, and she believed it was made in Pakistan or India. However, I have been unable to find a duplicate, nor have I been able to input the appropriate search terms online to find another. I was wondering if any of you are familiar with this style of garment.

    From outward appearance, it appears to be a long-sleeved, loose-fitting dress. It felt like it was made from cotton. However, it had two layers of fabric. The outer layer was made so a woman could pull it up and over her head, and therefore cover her hair. There was no way to fasten that into place, so I would think perhaps it was a housedress or some such -- so a woman could quickly cover if a visitor came, but could wear it as a dress when just around family. Or, perhaps, it was meant to be held in place with your hands or teeth, like a chador.

    Thank you again for your assistance!
