I am currently working on a Qipao/Cheongsam pattern with variations, and this one was just a quick pattern test for the stretchy fabric pattern. I used an emerald green remnant for this, I believe it’s lycra. Shiny fabric is usually not my favorite choice, but I liked the result so much that I added the emerald pendant and the tiny golden embellishment to turn the mock up into a proper dress. It’s a fun mixture of daring cleavage and modest high-necked collar, and I chose Melisande because of her hair color. It’s not her style, but it suits her surprisingly well.
