Sorry, this item sold. Have CoolVintageFinds make something just for you, or try these other items:
Long and lovely, it has hand embroidery on the sleeves and the hemline in a symphony of gorgeous color. The vertical applique stripes give it a slimming silhouette. The embroidered imagery is bugs, plants, reeds, flowers, and birds. I spent a good deal of time as a child in San Miguel de Allende and my mother wore lots of stuff like this, though not as refined in construction. Guadalajara must have had it going on back in the day.
The turquoise/teal collar is a squared portrait style, and the trim is a silky soft sheer satin. The fabric is that gorgeous Mexican cotton in a linen weave. The colors are remarkable--teal, turquoise, kelly green, moss green, purple, lilac, lavender, and baby blue. The hemline has a great amount of detailed embroidery work, and the cuffs as well. It has its original hang tag (it's removed, but I have it).
Label: "The Barefoot Eagle Diseno Josefa for any Villa"
Size: none labeled (but see my measurements below)
39" across waistline
50" hips (totally laid out)
55-1/2" overall length (shoulder to hemline)
21" sleeve outer length
14-1/2" sleeve inseam
16-3/4" shoulder width (seam to seam)
48" diameter at hemline (for a 96" sweep)
*there is a metal zipper at the back
Condition: it looks to have been worn very little, but there are some surface spots on the sleeve, the front (about 5), and the back (about 5), along with some superficial dirt marks from brushing up against something in storage. The marks and stains look like faint coffee or tea splashes, though I can't be sure. They are not very noticeable, but they are there.
The label reads dry clean only, and I'm sure some of the stains would be removed with professional cleaning. I have pics of the marks, and some are visible in the pictures. The stains are small and brown and very faint.
That said, there is an article about Josefa the designer here:
