WIP: Cheongsam challenge

All the sewing knowledge that I learnt are slowly coming back to me. The last time I made a cheongsam was way back in 2005. It takes a while to figuring it out. Just two little hiccups at this point - wrong zip length and I was stuck on putting bias tape around the mandarin collar. (And touching wood, hope there would be no more hiccups!) For the zip, tomorrow I will drop by at the haberdashery to get a new zip or to exchange the zip. Need to trial and error for the collar. Wish me luck!

Have a good week ahead!
