Mexican Blouses and Huipilis

These glorious mexican huipils and blouses are from the extensive photostream of Teyacapan/Karen Elwell, a textile expert from Chicago.According to Karen, huipils are sleeveless women's garments that can be worn short, waist-length or to the ankle.Blouses have sleeves and are made from cut pieces of cloth and sewn together  whereas huipils are usually made with woven, uncut pieces.These are so stunning I would consider framing to use as  unique wall adornment........Lots more on display on her site.
