mola (Blouse)

Physical description

Blouse with reverse appliqué panels (or mola). Colourful pieces of fabric have been cut into intricate linear designs and delicately sewn onto a backing panel, creating four bird heads. These molas make up the front and back torso of the blouse, and are similar but not identical. Synthetic green fabric scattered with colourful flowers has been made into short pleated sleeves and neck with small mola panels around the cuffs, and bottom hem is pleated yellow cotton.
