Old Mexico Dress by Folkwear

Old Mexico Dress by Folkwear

This 16th-century Spanish colonial style has survived through the centuries in central and northern Mexico as a blouse called a huipil.  It emerged as a popular dress in the USA in the mid to late 20th century.  This traditional garment was – and still is – a colorful, practical, and comfortable garment to wear.

This pattern is quick and easy to make, with just four pattern pieces. Make it as a below-knee dress or a top-of-the-thigh blouse, then fancy it up with the embroidery stitches on your sewing machine, or with other fun and colorful decoration.

Sizing: Misses XS-3XL
