Folkwaer 125; ©1981; Huichol Wardrobe. The lavishly embroidered clothing of the Huichol indians of Mexico reflects the richness and complexity of their culture, including their most central religious rite - the annual peyote pilgrimage. Folkwear presents five Huichol garments: Blouse, skirt, pants, shirt and tabard (open tunic). All are sized for women. The pants, shirt and tabard are also sized for men. Optional authentic embroidery designs and techniques are included in the extensive Huichol lore and authentic detailing. For everyday wear, the Huichols often favor unembellished white or bright colored cotton fabrics. The classic simplicity of these garments makes them easy to sew and perfect for casual daywear or loungewear. The bound slash-front neckline on the short unembroidered blouse creates an open collar and V-neck, and reveals a lined yoke. The full front and back are pleated into the yoke, which may be trimmed with bias. Full sleeves are pleated into yoke and cuffs. The full skirt is pleated into a narrow waistband which closes with hooks and eyes. The pants fall straight from an elasticized waist, have a center gusset, and finish just above the ankle. The versatile straight waist length shirt has the same neckline as the blouse, unlined, and sleeves pleated into cuffs. Usually worn belted over a shirt as an open sided tunic, the tabard may also be seamed from the underarm to the hip, falling open to mid-thigh length. The vertical neck slash creates a bound V-neck in front and back, and a dropped shoulder. Optional bias trim may be added to the cuffs and hemlines of all Huichol garments.
