I finally finished my first cheongsam (my first ever real sewing project), and while I am not too proud of the results, I would like to post it as a memory^^
This is what it is supposed to look like (a sexy cheongsam-inspired dress)!
The pattern is from Burdastyle and the fabrics are both silk. The beige one is back crepe satin (charmeuse) and the navy one I am not sure but frays very easily.
I bought the fabric from Tomato, which is a huge multi-storey fabric galore in Nippori, the “fabric town” of Tokyo. I love the place and could probably spend hours there!! My husband helped pick this beautiful color combination for fabrics.
My first attempt is not good enough to wear out (I am afraid it will come apart when I wear it) but this project definitely made me more interested in sewing! Hope to be able to share with you a nicer looking dress next time!
