What biblical costumes did common people wear?

Common religious costumes

Common religious biblical costumes were very basic. For men, shirts with simple rectangles folded over and a bound neck hole with openings on the sides for arms. A simple button and loop to hold it closed. Fabrics would be white, off white - cotton or linen, or a simple stripe that looked hand woven. This was worn with baggy pants cut from a wide rectangle. Women could wear pants like the men's or harem pants, with a tunic, under a longer, looser tunic and maybe a coat. Women's tunics had "angel" sleeves. The key for women's clothing is to have layers. Children's biblical costumes are the same as the adults. One exception to this is that the kids biblical costumes are not layered as much as the adults.
