Inspired by an adorable China Doll fabric, this dress features the classic Cheongsam silhouette with a mandarin collar and straight dress style.

Fabric

A fun and whimsical print by Michael Miller was showcased on this dress. Accents were created using double fold bias tape and frog closures.

Pattern Details


This dress was made using the Qi Pao Dress Pattern by Porcupine Patterns. I used the free version, although next time will purchase the full pattern to have access to the full range of sizes.


Sourcing Fabric


This Michael Miller fabric is now very difficult to find, although it can be found through fabric destash groups or overseas. I have also made this dress in other Asian inspired fabrics and they are so lovely!
