There are many many traditional Filipino dresses. This is one, called a Barot Saya.

The national costume of the Philippines, the baro’t saya, is an elegant hybrid of Filipino and Spanish clothing styles. The term itself comes from the Tagalong words "barot at saya" or "blouse and skirt," still the basic components of the ensemble. Made of pineapple cloth, the indigenous textile of the Philippine Islands, the silhouette of the garment relates to traditional Spanish costume, particularly in the cut of the sleeves, the shawl collar and trailing skirt. 1920-1940.

The baro't saya is a traditional Filipino blouse and skirt ensemble. It originated in Spanish times, when native Philippine women were required to cover their upper torso. Throughout Spanish colonization this was the everyday attire of most Philippine women.

Trixie Cruz-Angeles: Don't Call It a Costume

Don't Call It a Costume by Rose Beatrix C. Angeles. I wondered before why we insist on calling the baro't saya or the terno a national "costume." Is it because we are only really impersonating Filipinos, and that deep inside we feel we're actually Americans or Europeans or Chinese who just so happen to find themselves miraculously transported to this backwoods country where nothing seems to work, and thus we spend so much of this lifetime trying to escape this place?

My Manila

Since I mentioned Spanish colonial era clothes yesterday, here is another modern interpretation of the Maria Clara—a style of women's dress now considered formalwear named after the fiancé of the main protagonist of Jose Rizal's novel "Noli Me Tangere." Maria Clara would have loved the elaborate lace and pattern, but I doubt if she would have been comfortable with Eddie Castro's slim fit and starkly graphic colors.
