Final Garment – Sophia Huang

Below are pictures of the qipao I put together.

I learned a lot in this project. One of my biggest takeaways is learning how to add a zipper to the collar. I also learned how to put together the pieces to make the qipao (especially the front pieces). I think the collar and the bias tape going downwards on the front was the greatest success. I made the mistake of ironing over the back on the right side to make the fabric look nicer. This is because the fabric is really thin and ironing the zipper left a mark on the right side.

Next project ideas:

  1. making a qipao with ruffle sleeves and ruffles on the bottom
  2. making a qipao style dress that is flowy on the bottom
  3. making a top that is qipao style that has a lower collar
