This is a gorgeous, old huipil, or over blouse, woven and worn by a Mayan woman in Guatemala. The multi-colored embroidery is accented by pink, green and orange designs in the center and shoulders.  The colors are somewhat muted and faded but it still has a lot to say. It's not fitted so it could be worn as an overblouse but it does have a couple of stains on the both sides, so you might want to consider displaying it. Remember these have been worn and loved so they sometimes have small blemishes. Huipiles are woven as two separate strips on a back strap loom, then made into blouses with the stitching around the neck and the stitching down the center. 

The size is medium large to large. It is  basically a square shape so they are not fitted and VERY comfortable. This one is open on the sides. It is made of cotton and rayon so it is very drapey. 

One of a kind, super beautiful
