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.
