Step-By-Step Solution

1. Trace the evolution of the Mesoamerican women‘s skirt and tunic top costumes from their origins with the Olmec, through the Teotihuano, Maya, and ultimately to the Aztec. Identify the names of the garments by each culture. Which elements did each civilization add to give their version of costume a cultural distinction?

The earliest Mesoamerican form of skirt for women was the Olmec grass skirt called a cueitl of about 1300-800

BCE. Olmec women wore no tops. By the middle of the first millennium CE, Teotihuacáno women wore a woven textile wrap version of the Olmec cueitl with a sleeveless tunic top called a huipilli. By the time of the Maya, the wrap skirt, called a pyq or pic was sometimes sewn up the side to form a tubular pull-on variety. Tunics of high- born Maya women featured a crenulated hemline. The Aztec standardized the cueitl and huipilli into a basic ensemble for all classes of women. They added a decorative border of stripes around the hemlines of the tunic and skirt. During the colonial period the skirt became the decorative enredo and the huipilli became the vividly colored huipil.
