सा तदा समलङ्कृत्य सीता सुरसुतोपमा । प्रणम्य शिरसा तस्यै रामं त्वभिमुखी ययौ ॥

श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अयोध्याकाण्डे एकोनविंशोत्तरशततमस्सर्गः (११ श्लोक)

After wearing the divine clothes and ornaments given by AnsuyaDevi, Sita prostrated before AnasuyaDevi and saluted Her.

Performing namaskarams to elders after wearing new clothes is indeed an ancient custom of Indians.
