Two piece cheongsam


This fabric holds the memory of the earlier days when we opened our store.
We had a huge window and before the blinds came, we had to have some sort of cover for privacy and such...
So, off I went to scout for a makeshift curtain...stumbled across this fabric from a mountain of cut fabrics and it was love at first sight.
I was and still am crazy over tailor made cheongsam and after deliberating on the cuts, I settled on this 2 piece which could be worn as a top (a belt was made in the same fabric) and of course, flare culottes with side pockets.
This is my 5th cheongsam made, with the first being my wedding cheongsam, then it was a top, a batik jumpsuit which I've yet to do a proper shoot of and 4th was a jimui dress.

I'm itching for another one but it's insane the number of times I actually wear them but man...it's fabulous how a cheongsam can make one feel!
