Blue satin skirt, has a band of red squins, sewn on a scalloped braid at the hem. The elaborate sequin pattern features many brightly colored flowers, several Aztec figures doing ceremonial activities, and the Mexican Eagle and Serpent. The skirt yoke is of green, white and red satin in a zig-zag pattern. Most of the decorative motifs were done on blue velvet and then appliqued to the skirt. The skirt fastens with hooks and eyes at the waist, probably at the back.

This skirt was made by Esther Quintero Sanchez (Mrs. Trinidad Jose Sanchez) and her comadres in Sacramento. It was made from other China Poblana skirts.
