I'm not quite sure what these wonderful flowing dresses are called.
These photos were taken in Ifni and Tiznet in Southern Morocco.
So far as I could work out, the entire costume is one piece of fabric wound rather elegantly around.
The garment is wonderfully billowy. I really wish I could have asked the women if I could take their photo --but since that wasn't possible, everyone is walking away!
The garment isn't worn exactly like a sari....
..it's more all-enveloping somehow.
Anyway, when I discover how they work, I'll let you know.
My friend Barbara Jamila Fitzgerald answered this question in a comment.
Many thanks Jamila!
This garment is a rectangle not as long as a sari and called milhefah. In my son in law's family the women who are lawyers, doctors and teachers wear them.
The little schoolboy could come from almost anywhere.
