This beautiful Mexican dress is the the traditional and peasant Puebla Mexican dress. The dress is typical of the region of Tehuacan in the state of Puebla. The style is loose and very simple. The sleeve is the original straight sleeve design. The dress is perfect for a warm day, for the beach over your swim suit, or for a evening if you wear it with high heels and a shawl. All of the items are one of a kind because combinations of fabric and thread colors are unique. The color description is only for the fabric. Some of the figures in the designs are inspired from the art work on historic buildings. The process to create the dress may take a few months. It is usually cut and designed by a family or cooperative, and then is sent to women in communities across the region for embroidering. We have created this dress in different lengths. When it is 40 inches (or shorter according to size) we call "knee lenght", When it is 41 inches (or longer according to size) we call it MIDI, and MAXI when its longer than 50 inches. The critical measurement for this dress is the bust. Here is a guide for the different sizes we offer: X-Small is 32-33 inches, Small is 34-35 inches, Medium is 36-37 inches, Large is 38.5-40.5 inches, X-Large is 42.5-45, XX-Large is 47.5-50 inches. If you are in between two sizes, is recommend to order the larger size because the style is a loose fit.

I was interested in an authentic dress and this dress is just perfect. The material is light and it fits perfect. I was afraid that it was going to be too wide but it wasn't. The embroidery is just beautiful.
