San Jose, Califo...
I decided to use a burda magazine pattern, 2009/04, dress 115. It is a simple sheath dress with a pretty decent fit, for petite!! I really liked the pattern before as it is a really interesting pattern, but I never had an excuse to make a dress like that. So I thought– this is perfect for my qipao!
I made the following alterations:
the slits in the front/back is eliminated, instead, I left two slits on the sides, all the way up to my thigh.
I changed the front shoulder seam a little so that it meets the collar in the center
I added an asian style collar
added piping at the shoulder seams
