I bought these lovely huipiles last year during a visit to Tehuantepec and Juchitan. They are all handmade and embroidered by either machine or by hand. You will love the colors and the elegant flowing skirts (very flattering). Machine stitched designs are typical of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec style of clothing. The sizes can fit medium to extra large because the waistbands have ties that are adjustable. If the blouse is a little too big, just run a seam up both sides to take it in — so simple. I would recommend dry cleaning because of the handwork. They are $125 USD each (plus shipping) and I will accept a personal check or PayPal. Send me an email to purchase: firstname.lastname@example.org
Outfit #1: Orange Polka Dots. The top is hand and machine embroidered on a tiny polka dot background. The skirt is a contrasting large polka dot design. Very fun. The gored flowing skirt is 33″ long and the waistband is 36″ around but can wrap smaller with the long ties — very adjustable. The top is lined and is 22″ long from the shoulder seam and 24″ across side seam to side seam. The fabric feels like cotton or a cotton and poly blend. $125USD.
Outfit #2: Red Floral with Black Stars and Yellow Bodice. Flowing skirt is sheer poly-silk fabric, 37″ long with an adjustable 36″ tie waistband as described in skirt #1. Top is lined and is 22″ long and 24″ wide from side seam to side seam. A very dressy outfit. $125 USD.
Outfit #3: Green Floral with Tan and White Embroidered Bodice. Flowing skirt is 37′ long with 36″ adjustable tie waistband. Top is lined and is 22″ long and 24″ wide from seam to seam. $125 USD.
