QUESTION:

What kind of clothes do you wear?




ANSWER: March-30-2009 by Wellesley Gayle

Very interesting question Marissa :-)

Traditional Jamaican dress for the women consists of a skirt, a top and a headscarf that is made from calico, a type of cotton cloth.

The dresses that Jamaican people wear are very colorful which mirror the spirit of the Jamaicans...' For the entire article click here
