San Jose, Califo...
This is the Qipao of my dreams :P well, after the test run, I bought nice silk from SF’s famous Britex, and made this dress. I altered it a little to make it shorter. But I still didnt get the two front curvy thing to line up. I put pipng all alone any edges I could find, and I like the result. I also got lucky and had a maroon separating zipper, and therefore this dress can be opened up like a shirt! :) But for anyone trying this pattern, I may suggest to just sew the sides and front together and put a zipper in the back :)
All in all, i achieved the traditional look I wanted and I was able to make it fit much better :)
