Unique huipil from the Tactic region. This striking huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders*, and 26″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening measures approximately 20” in circumference.

This huipil is unique with its full ‘v’ shaped weaving design with satin soft thread that features rows of tiny ‘mayan stars’ and the classic zigzag pattern of Tactic in soft pastel colors of purple and light blue. The background fabric is a medium-weight black cotton with accent dots throughout the bodice. There is an extra panel of commercial fabric sewn to the bottom edge of this huipil to extend the length. This can easily be removed. *If this added fabric is removed, the side stitching can be removed to widen this huipil by approximately 8″. This row of side stitching runs down each side at the shoulders to make this huipil more narrow.

This huipil is in fair/good used condition, the flaws being a few pulled or loose threads as well as a several small spots in the bodice, perhaps from a bleach splatter. There is slight fading of the black background fabric.
