“Terno” Back Time with Gino Gonzales

The baro’t saya, or if worn by affluent women, the traje de mestiza, consisted of the camison or inner blouse as first layer of cover, topped with baro or the blouse with long and billowy sleeves, and then covered with a panuelo or a starched cloth acting as a shawl to fully cover their once-bare bosoms. They also started to wear ankle-length skirts.
