Description

So for the past month I’ve been making clothing inspired by different historical time periods, so I researched China from 1911-1945 (during the time of the Republic) and studied the evolution of the qipao in that period for a week or so. I used (roughly) this pattern:

I made a really simple black slip to go under it, too. I love how this turned out. I think it looks so cute.

    That is stunning. Is it comfortable to wear?

    This looks great, I really like the shape of the dress. Do you have any idea of the yardage of the material you used for it? I was also planning on making it but I could not decide on how much fabric one would need. Thanks.
