Hong Kong has long been the crossroads of culture in the Orient. This elegant Cheongsam (Cantonese for "long dress") dates from the 1930s and is a perfect merging of Eastern and Western fashion. Simple, slender, and close fitting, the dress draws the eye immediately to the classic fit, fabric, and finishing. Much thought is given to the choice of silken fabric, and to the fine finishing details of the bound edges and frog fastenings. As an alternate version, Folkwear offers faced edges. 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 the right 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 ankle-length and in a contemporary just-below-the-knee length. Both versions finish with the traditional Mandarin collar. Suggested fabrics: Light to medium-weight silk, lightweight brocade and jacquard weaves, satin, rayon, or synthetics. Includes sizes 6 to 16. Fabric requirements for full-length dress: 2 1/2 to 3/12 yards of 34" wide fabric. Fabric requirements for low knee-length dress: 2 1/8 to 2 3/4 yards of 45" wide fabric. Hong Kong Cheongsam pattern.
