Hcm, Viet Nam






I sew this dress to wear at the first day of Lunar New Year. Hope it will bring me more luck in coming year.
In Vietnam, we believe that Red color is stand for luck, strength and spring.

Material Notes

I’m not sure about the material but it seems little thick and unwrinkled. Kinda mix of polyester and cotton.

    Good luck to you… and all we would be VERY lucky if you could draft a pattern and post it…. Love the pleats, the retro look, and the sleeves… and have no friend’s dress to copy….

      hi Chainskom.

      I did not use any pattern. Just copy the style from my friend’s dress and create more detail like the belt.

    What an elegant dress! I especially like the top part with the gorgeous sleeves. The fabric looks like a good choice for this dress.

      Hi cquinn13! No, I did not use any pattern. I just copy style from my friend’s dress and modify it with the belt.

    The pleats in the skirt are a great design element!
