    Beautiful fabric! I made a maxi dress out of the very same. Seeing as i’m inAfrica, getting the very same fabric isn’t difficult

    Nice! I love the boots you’ve paired it with too – the whole thing looks like a great outfit for a night out.

      To answer your question, in it’s tunic form it was a dashiki, an African garment worn by men. Dashiki’s became popular (at least in the US) in the late 60’s. My mom got her hands on some fabric for making them around that time and made a dress too :)
