1930s Cotton Floral Cheongsam
item WD00211

Lightweight printed cotton is edged in light blue and features vivid red and blue cotton frog fasteners. Snaps up the side and at angle across bodice. The neck circumference is very slim - probably too slim for full closure. See measurements but approximately equivalent to a modern 6 - 8. This is meant to be worn with room to move and not reveal the body. Some minor discoloration in small areas that are hard to pick out within the pattern, including near armscyes. This very rare dress was custom made for the wife of a doctor who practiced in China during the 1930s and 1940s. It's both a thing of beauty and a respectful and sensitive interpretation of what would be appropriate for a Westerner to wear. No label.
