I made this dress with many improvisations. An ao-dai dress pattern for the basic style with raglan sleeves, cut the length and sleeves, widened the body and sleeves (ao-dai dress is rather tight!), tighten the width at the bottom a little to get a rather straight side line, used different polyester fabric with woven patterns for the bottom and cuffs, and sewn a scarf with the same fablic.
At last, I got the style I really like! This is so comfortable, though I can wear this at office because of rather simple style and chic colors. So now I am planning to make another dress with other fabrics for early spring!
Wool for body, and polyester with woven patterns for the bottom and cuffs.
Fully lined with Bemberg.
This collection will make you shine in front of the camera!
