 Beautiful soft huipil featuring elegant hand-stitched overflowing flower baskets. This beautiful huipil measures 35″ across the shoulders, 26″ across the chest, and 24″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures 5.25″ x 5.25″. The sides are stitched to create armholes. **Note that the sides of this huipil have been tailored. They have been taken in and cut to create a more fitted look. They cannot be opened back out completely to make square. The sleeve openings are quite small at 9″ around. It might be possible to open them more, but I cannot say for certain.

This lovely white huipil is accented with a hand-stitched design across the chest and back, as well as on the sleeve caps that features overflowing flower baskets and colorful calla lilies around the neck opening. The detailed design is a wonderful work of art. The background fabric is a super soft woven white.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in good used condition, with little sign of wear. There are some blue marks/stains on one side just under the design and a couple of stains of the other side. The bottom edge shows where the extra thread was woven back into the huipil, running stock effect, (slightly lumpy  and open weave at bottom edge). A stunning piece of art for wear or display!
