This 16th century Spanish colonial style has survived through the centuries in central and northern Mexico as a blouse. It later enjoyed immense popularity in the U.S. as a dress-length favorite in the mid-to-late 20th century. This traditional garment was - and still is - colorful, practical, and comfortable to wear.
Quick and easy to make, with just four pattern pieces, you can wear it as a below-knee dress or a mid-thigh blouse, but it's simple to lengthen or shorten as you wish. The traditional blouse was hand-embroidered on the yoke, sleeves, and front with brilliantly colored floral designs. Whether you make it as a dress or blouse, let your imagination go wild with the decorative stitches on your machine.
