This is a pretty, vintage huipil, or over blouse, woven and worn by a Mayan woman in Guatemala. The cream with red and green striped weaving is complimented by the fantastic colorful birds.  The colors combine beautifully. It's not fitted so it is perfect for wearing with jeans or with a belt over a full skirt. These are woven as two separate strips on a backstrap loom, then made into blouses with the embroidery around the neck and the stitching down the center. This one is creamy off white with stripes in the background and multi-colored birds. The head hole is small but it does fit over my head. The huipil is drapey in feel and likely has rayon in it. There is a small hole in the fabric--please see the photo. 

Perfect for displaying! 

The size is small. Huipils are basically a square shape so they are not fitted and VERY comfortable. This one is closed on the sides so it can either be worn over another top or worn alone.
