Hong Kong has long been the crossroads of culture in the Orient. Folkwear's elegant Cheongsam (Cantonese for "long dress") dates from the 1930s and is a perfect merging of Eastern and Western fashions.
Simple, slender, and close fitting, the dress draws the eye immediately to the classic fit, fabric, and finishing details.
The construction is basic, with only two main pattern pieces. Cut without shoulder seams, the back and sleeves wrap over the shoulders. The curve of the front piece opens on th eright side and fastens with frogs and a side zipper.
The dress fits closely in the bust and hips, while skimming over the waist, and tapers to a slightly curved hemline. Side slits provide ease of movement. The dress is offered full-length and in a contemporary just-below-the-knee length.
