I am a Christian! Can I wear a muslim dress?

I first received such an e-mail in far 2012 when we just started Annah Hariri. I was very pleasantly surprised and took my time to write a long reply with quotes and Quran and Bibles references. I think that that time my reply simply put the question sender off. 
In the run of 5 years Annah Hariri is existing, those questions about permissibility of wearing our dresses by Christian, Jewish or simply modest loving women were coming. When I had received that 1st letter in 2012 I thought that it was rather an exception and misinformation but now I see it is more like a common stereotype. And I can't understand where it is coming from?
What is your opinion about why non-muslim women are afraid to buy & wear modest dresses? Why do they attribute our dresses to muslim ladies only?
What will be your reply to the question I receive lots: "I am not Muslim but can I wear your dresses Annah?"
I would love to read replies from women of all faith in the comments!

    I wonder myself over such a question. For I am a Christian women I am thinking about changing my fashion image. I was a little concern how family and friends even society would be confused with my choice as well as my faith. however if we go back biblically the dress between Christian women and Muslim women was quite the same, So there should not be any confusion in the matter. I think its a beautiful thing for women of faith to go back to our roots if we wish. I see this style of dress chic, sophisticated, stylish, spiritual . So I see nothing wrong with Christian women wearing Muslim attire after all it was our attire as well unlit we adapted to societies modern life style.

    I guess Christian women have a right to wear modest dresses. As we go back in history, jewish people which considered to be the origin of christianity wear modest attire with the cover on their hair. It was also written in the bible about wearing modestly but during this days, it is not mandated to christian women to wear modest attire. It depends upon the person if she is feel comfortable on the attire. I am a Christian women but I confidently wear modest attire like Muslim women do. I love to wear modest dresses because it defines me as I am, I feel comfortable wearing it and it makes me to be myself. The only thing that makes me uncomfortable wearing modest dress such as muslim attire is when some muslim people will talk to me, and I cannot understand their language, that could be shameful. But over all, I like how Muslim women dressed. It just shows that body is sacred and it should be covered to prevent lustful sin. ✌ this is just my own perception, and I know that we have different perception about modesty. Sometimes, it should be physicaly and moraly
