Vintage Chinese Dresses

Postby Stephanie » Sat Mar 29, 2008 1:19 am

When Dean and I were in Vancouver last week visiting Dave, we stopped in a great little chinese clothing store in Chinatown. I bought a shirt while we were there and Dean bought a lovely (ladies) scarf for himself. I told Dave how I have a collection of vintage chinese dresses (cheongsam) from my mom's and aunt. I think Dave may have mentioned wanting to see some pictures of the dresses. Unfortunately, I'm about two inches too tall and 30 pounds too big to wear the dresses, as my mom and aunt were very petite. But I just remembered I do have a few photos of some of the dresses. Most of the materials were silk based, but not all of it is the satin-like silk. Some of it was more of a silk tweed. You will notice every dress has a similar design, like the mandarin collar, but are all very different somehow, in material, length, and formality. My mom said every dress was custom tailored.

Mom, undated, most likely mid-late 50s.

Mom, September 1958.

Mom's cousin, most likely late 1950s.

Suddenly, no more photos of my mom posing in dresses. My sister was born in 1964.

Beautiful, beautiful. I love Mandarin collars, and the business suits are wonderful.

There's this site called ChineseTailor.com, where I ordered a custom outfit. Actually, I was the matron of honor in a wedding, and the bride, groom and I all ordered custom outfits. She wore a long cheongsam in red with black piping; he wore the Jet Li suit in blue with gold patterns; and I wore a skirt and top combination in black with silver piping. Steff and I also got purses. They did good work, and they're not that expensive for custom-made clothing, especially at our sizes (I'm tall, busty, and a size 22; Steff is 6'1" and a size 24; and Mike is at least 6'4" and very large -- there was no way we could buy off-the-rack).

Wow. Nice photos, Steph.

I love hairstyles from the 60s. They have a level of awesomeness that we've yet to recapture.
