It is a loose-fitting tunic, generally made from two or three pieces of fabric which are then joined together with stitching with an opening for the head and if the sides are sewn, opening for the arms. The length of the huipil can vary from a short blouse-like garment or long enough to reach the floor. They have different purposes as for weeding and even to dress the statues of saints.
