I thought the piece was interesting, but that was about it. My friend who was with me wanted me to put it on so I did and once on, I liked it so much more especially when I cinched it in around the waist.
I sewed ties to the front and then pulled the ties inside to the back and tied them.
Huipils available on Ebay, but why not make your own? After all, it's nothing more than a rectangle. Use a fabric that you love and rather than the embroidery around the neck, maybe use a beautiful piece of embroidered ribbon. The length can be any length you like. For the width, you will want your rectangle to be approximately 3/4 of your hip measurement. This will give you enough to wrap to the front and to the back. The opening for the head to go through is just a square.
I think I am going to get a lot of wear out of my piece as it is so easy to throw on.
Good luck if you decide to give it a try. As you can see, it is probably the easiest piece you'll ever make. Happy Friday!
