The origin of the Ladies flamenco outfitsThe origin of this dress is the humble working robe that used to be worn by Andalusian countrywomen. The most common cloth used was percale and it had one or more (up four) flounces at a hem that was a cut in such a way that it flared out. An apron was worn around the
waist to protect the dress.
The most common accessories were some modest jewelry or rudimentary wooden rings and bracelets painted in bright colours. A flower was also worn in the hair next to the large ornamental comb that held the hair in a bun.
