The Tarkhan dress, from an Egyptian tomb, which is a woven, stitched and gathered linen (from flax) dress is believed to be from 5,100 to 5,500 years old.

İmage

The ancient dress would have been a lovely off-white color.

5,100 to 5,500 years is an exceptionally long time for a garment to still be recognized as such.
Interesting... it's not 'simple' by any means.

No, not at all, with the stitching and gathering, which, with linen being easily creased, would be a smart way of handling the fabric's natural tendency for wrinkling.

What? No kilts? No kimonos?

So, you have no special garment that allows freedom of movement?
