RED SAUDI ARABIAN THOBE/Cover Up
Now THIS is a firecracker of a dress!
This is a candy-apple (bright) red THOBE, usually worn in the UAE, by the Gulf Peoples, and in areas such as Saudi Arabia. Often considered folk clothing or national clothing, this thobe is typically worn at fancy events, weddings, and often by dancers demonstrating the folk dancing and singing of these areas.
This lovely thobe is sheer (as is typical) and is used as a cover up for clothing underneath (which could also be fancy). The general shape of the thobe is rectangular, where the arm holes being very long (more than halfway down the dress), and it is thus quite roomy and flowy.
The entire front is emblazoned with gold thread and sequins sewn into beautiful geometric patterns. The design extends to the back, though it is not as heavily patterned. It is said that this outfit may be one of the inspirations of the 70's glamour gown looks....
