It's that time of year again, when children dress up in tea towels and dressing gowns to represent first century Jews (who wore neither tea towels nor dressing gowns).
As I was doing this anyway for a project, thought I'd post a simple, no-sew, historically accurate first century costume.
Could do with cloak-draping instructions too, but that will have to wait. Basically, wrap a bit of cloth round you for a cloak.
If you really want a hat, a beanie would probably be a bit more (very approximately!) accurate than a tea towel.
A girl can have the same costume ankle length. If she's depicting a married woman, she should cover her hair with a shawl.
