Part # N-Folkwear - 122


Hong Kong has long been the crossroads of culture in the Orient. Our elegant Cheongsam (Cantonese for "long dress") dates from the 1930s and is a perfect merging of Eastern and Western fashion. Simple, slender, and close fitting, the construction is basic, with only two main pattern pieces. Cut without shoulder seams, the back and sleeves wrap over the shoulders. The curve of the front piece opens on the right side and fastens with frogs and a side zipper. The dress fits closely in the bust and hips, while skimming over the waist, and tapers toa slightly curved hemline. Side slits provide ease of movement. The dress is offered full-length and in a contemporary just-below-the-knee length. The pattern includes tips for custom-fitting your cheongsam, as well as notes about authentic detailing.
