Ridiculously adorable hand-embroidered dress from Uzbekistan. The cut is perfect and the embroidery is fabulous. A nice fine cotton base and plush vibrant suzani embroidery. A lovely quality of silk embroidery thread that has the slightest sheen too it.
44 long and 19" wide across the chest under the armpits.
Would fit up to a large size M. The model is 5' 7"
This is huipil made from a Colotenango huipil. A beautiful colorway. The dress is base is made from a thick and supple rayon called aleman which is prized for its drape. The cotton embroidery is very fine and the geometric designs are of typical Colotenango embroidery.
