My Cheongsam dress

Added Dec 9, 2017

Sydney, Australia






Butterick Gertie’s pattern B6483 – I made a size 14 – no alternations.
Cheongsam / Qipao style dress with side zip. 2 skirt options – full or straight.

So nice working with a beautiful cotton fabric, the dress came together without any hiccups. (I haven’t had a really good strike rate of late)..

As soon as I found this fabric I knew I had to make a Cheongsam style dress!
I made a belt as well. I wore this to my Christmas party and can you believe I didn’t get one photo. I came home a little bit merry and took a couple of selfies in my room. My photos always let me down :(

Material Notes

Vintage cotton fabric
Invisible zip
Marcasite closures

    Great dress, and a tidy collar. Loving your vinyl collection!

    That color is lovely. You should style your hair into a chignon, and you’ll be ready for the banquet or wedding celebration.
