Nice daily use huipil
Bought from Christolina in 2014 and made by her or a member of her family. She told me about 15 years old. I might guess a bit older.
Condition: A used huipil in good used condition with a few loose threads and light base wear. Randa at neckline has been opened about 1 inches (would be easy to open further if you need a larger neck hole, or stitch closed if you don't).
* Remember the huipil's width should be at least 1.5 to 2 times your shoulders width, to allow for fitting your frame and to cover part of your upper arms.
