Huipil 
Width: 28"
Length: 19"
Neck :  6" w x 3" d

wt: 11 oz

Price:  $55.00


Panajachel ----  This is a lighter-weight, nicely done two-paneled huipil. It may be of synthetic threads Primarily bird and sun (?) designs brocaded in the weave. Nice crocheted around neck line and arm holes.  Would be easy to wear because fits over my head and light weight. It's design is atypical being only 2-panel. Good used conditional with a few loose threads. Lower panels are cut and hemmed.  Sides huipil are open - so can be worn as a poncho or easily sewn closed.

   Fitting Tips ---  Huipils were traditionally made on a loom. Thus they are made of rectangular pieces and are not intended to be a fitted garment.  The width of the garment should be considerably larger (at least 25 to 33%) than the shoulders of the wearer.  Think about room to grow too! Mayan women often put tucks in a huipil's shoulder then remove them as a child grows. 

Neck and head hole openings on Huipils are often small.  Note that we can not guarantee that the neck size of a Huipil fits you and your child.  If you want to wear some huipils you may have to open the neck opening and lightly stitch it. This is especially true of Huipils that have been woven on a back-strap loom.    Please check your neck and head measurements carefully!!!
