  1. This lovely piece is a Oaxacan wedding dress that comes from the Southwestern part of Mexico. These were very popular in the late 70's and early 80's in the beach areas of Southern Calif. (almost every girl who could get a ride to TJ had one) ... and yes, they are very beautifully embroidered and made. We still have an all white dress with the 'worry doll' embroidery highlighted in red and black ... had one done in white with black emb. and another like this in a dress and a shorter top as well. A treasure truly! Thanks for sharing it!
