The jewel-colored velvet blouses of Navajo women and girls date back to the 1870s when machine-woven textiles were first brought to the newly established trading posts. This snugly fitting pullover blouse is typically lined with calico and worn over a voluminously gathered and tiered "broomstick" skirt. The Navajos traditionally embellished many or all of the seams with silver jewelry and coins. Decorated or not, this blouse is a versatile and practical addition to any wardrobe. The Blouse is unlined, with contrasting (usually calico) facings at collar, neck and cuffs. A decorative neck placket at center front closes with snaps; narrow tucks accent the sleeves. View A features a simple square collar and slip-over cuffs, while View B offers a larger, shaped collar with narrow neckband; sleeves are fastened with buttoned cuffs. A decorative placket finished the cuff opening. Included in the historical notes is a diagram for a Navajo tiered "broomstick" Skirt design.
