Blue rough cotton woman's shirt with pointed sleeves.
submitted by S. Suleiman

Plate 36. The sleeves of this shirt are cut out of one piece, and not put together, as is the case with the shirt shown on the previous plate. The seams are often decorated with multicoloured silk stitches. The native women of Jerusalem used to wear garments cut in a similar fashion, but of huge dimensions. They were gathered in the ancient Persian manner, and the upper sleeve-edges were tied together behind the neck. This produced a very picturesque fold arrangement.
