This cheongsam applied satin with machine-embroidered lacelike floral and foliage patterns, which add a sense of movement and liveliness to the textile. It is not costly at all although it has embroideries all over. Without lining, this gown is a testimony to the trend in the 1930s when single-layer cheongsams often went with underskirts.
