Ao dai is the traditional dress of Vietnam.  I made the pattern from an old one that had some damage to the fabric.  The gold pants underneath was tailored for me a while back. Let me know what you think.



It's not perfect, but it is my first one...so it can only get better Grin yay!

very nice! I really like the fabric and the way the sleeves attach to the bodice.

Thank you very much!
Hellga: "Ao Dai" dresses are all of the same pattern: a raglan long sleeve top with the front and back bodice elongated to the desired length from the waist worn with pants.  The differences are mostly type of fabric/print and small variations such as collar styles.  The side seams are finished, and left open from the natural waist.  Folkwear has a pattern for the Vietnamese Ao Dai, if you want to try your hand at it.  There is also a pattern available online if you search "ao dai pattern,"  but the resulting pattern looked much different from the one I made so I did not try to make a muslin.  If you try it, let me know if it works for you.  Here is a drawing to better illustrate:

Beautiful!  I have that folkwear pattern, but I haven't been able to alter the sleeves to fit right.
